    I hate to do it, but I think I'm done for a while. I miss boating, fishing in the deep blue, and it's about time to do some more of that. Not to mention, I can drink beer while fishing...

    Plus, to add to it, my work schedule sucks and only have one weekend off a month. I can't ride when my friends ride, so, well, it doesn't make sense to keep three bikes, pay insurance on them, and pay property taxes...

    Another bike will probably be somewhere in my future, but it probably won't be a superbike. I like the Honda Interceptor, and if I get another, that'll probably be the one.

    Anyway, y'all be good. I'll still check in every now and then.

    If anyone is interested in a sweet bike, with lots of accessories, at a great price, CLICK HERE!!!

    Hate to hear somebody else giving up the sport. My good friend and ex-riding buddy won't ride anymore, after his self-induced and pre-warned crash.

    I think you'd get some mighty good Karma, by GIVING that nice bike away to another GT'er who'd be more than willing to come up to SC and get it ;) Karma; you'll never know when you'll need it.

    Go Limit out on the fishees, and Enjoy the Beer. Good Luck and Ride Safe. :thumbsup:

    Maybe name that boat after a fav. Bike. Makes and models, you have many choices to choose from.

    Hey, have fun in everything. If riding doesn't grab you more than things like boating and fishing, you are making the right choice. The risks of riding on the street are real, and frankly, it takes a deep love of motorcycling to make it worth the danger. You may fall out of a boat, but risk for time spent is much lower.

    I do love it, but when I left the ER and went to the Kwak dealer after my collision, I didn't look at the fastest supersports. Not because they aren't fun, but because they are VERY fun at velocities that are poorly suited for public roads. If you come back to riding, consider something that doesn't require (or entice) extraordinary risks like a litre bike. My Royal Enfield Bullet 500 is a joy to ride, and a comfortable perch. But it isn't fast.

    Speed is fun. But fun doesn't always require hyper-velocity riding on the street. A slower bike than your Honda with more pleasant ergonomics and rational design for everyday use would probably be more fun for most people, maybe you too. I know you have a Sportster (right?), but that swings too far the OTHER way to me.

    Whatever, enjoy yourself. Glad you didn't stop riding because of an accident.

    I have way to many hobbies myself. As you get older time gets more scarce. Sometimes I think spending less time on the computer makes the most sense.

    I think te quote is from the Pink Floyd song "Time". Great song by the way. Especially the part about missing the starting gun.

    Yes it is from the song Time written by David Gilmore of Pink Floyd. It's one of my favorite songs.
