Four weeks ago was the second time in eight months I was hit by a car and the bike written off. This time though I needed surgery and since it was two weeks before my first child was born I've reflected on what's important to me. Fun though biking is and I know I'll miss it, the amount of idiotic driving I've seen and been on the receiving end of means I'm taking a safer option that I hope will tip the odds in my favour of seeing my son grow up.

So that's the sob story :) . I'll update this thread as I take a sort of inventory through my garage and will add pics as I go along. If there's anything listed that you might be interested in but I've not put included a pic of yet, I'll post a pic for you right away on request.

If you want to call round to our place in Christchurch to see what might be of interest you'll find I won't refuse any reasonable offer (please don't take the piss, though. Which reminds me we have nappies to buy) and we'll make you a half decent cup of tea.
