I don’t think I shall be owning another bike.
This may be my last entry in this blog. It is well over a year since the last one. My arthritis is worse. I also have spondylosis of the spine. I suspect there will be no more riding.
When Steve rode away on the Silver Lady I thought to myself that by the time he has completed the journey back to Perth, he will want to own that bike. She’s a beauty.
Sure enough, after a period of not being able to sell her, he made me an offer. It was less than half of what I paid, but I was not in a position to quibble. At that time I believed I might soon be unemployed, due to funding cuts, and I had committed to buying a used Landcruiser, a series 80, with which to carry off my stuff and depart Halls Creek.
As it turns out, my position was defunded, but I was offered another and so I am still here. With a Landcruiser I barely use, having the use of the work troopy. But that is another story.
Anyway Steve has just posted a picture of my – now his – bike. He has customised her to his own taste. She looks pretty. But then she always did.
It is difficult to see the one you love with another. but I should be used to that by now.
I thought a photo of her might be a good way to close off this blog.
