The CL still languishes although my income has increased greatly since April when I started my part time job at Draganfly most of that goes into the pot here and of course my expenses have increased. Finally all my bikes are here, shortly to be joined by my big brothers CD200TB, the only way forward might be to sell one or two but I am always loath to do that.

I'm like my regular ride, old battered and bit leaky, but still going.

Possible, but always a hard thing to do, even with the Superdream​ which I'm not that attached to.

Hmm thinking about it I've sold 50% of bikes I've ever owned, so yes it is possible.

Been riding bikes since 1981 and I would think I'm a keeper, but adding it up my breakdown is as follows

Owned 10 bikes
Kept 3
sold 5
Stolen 1
Destroyed itself 1 (sold for parts)

If the stolen one wasn't, I would still have it. That was my first Bonnie, bought in 1983 as a snotty nosed 18yr old. Stolen in 1989

That's sounds like a good average. I've sold 9 bikes in my 40 years , broken 1, so with that I have 16 altogether but 4 of those were Chinese 125s which I didn't ride just put together and sold them.
