A Lifetime of Manning The Up!

Recommended Posts

Despite being an OAP I do my talking on the road......not the internet. And it occurred to me today that in one month's time I'll be entering my 6th decade on bikes! Of course talk is cheap......without a pic it didn't happen.


So here's me back in the early 70's on a Kawasaki 500 Triple with big hair......in those days I was engaged in systematically eradicating vaginal dryness across all Swansea postcodes! It was a dirty job......but somebody had to do it!

Now after 63 bikes, 2 wives, 5 sons, a grandson.......and 1500 miles from where I came from, I'm still Styling and Profiling!


Here's a few shots and a short vid of very rural roads which start only 5 minutes from the house!


Not a car to be seen as usual......I'm not a big fan of cars getting in my way!


Check this out [mention]NeilM[/mention] .......no namby pamby VR46 shit on my watch! 8-)


Tell him [mention]Six30[/mention]


And the rest of you should MAN The UP and publish some ride reports......never mind the talking.....let's see some doing!


You gonna let an OAP show you up or what? 8-)


What you say [mention]Stu[/mention]?

You're talking like a Casual Stu! If Google profiles you in that context it's the kiss of death for SEO!

Dunno what's the matter with you young guys these days.....premature baldness, testosterone deficiency, low sperm counts, in touch with your feminine sides etc.

Got everything ticking over exactly as I want it now! When my boy walked out and left for Poland 3 years ago he dropped me right in the shit. Too many clients for just one.


But natural wastage occurs and the only new ones I take on are large corporates with big budgets......who only work Mon-Fri.


So I've reorganised everything now and got it under control. Cloud Linux keeps the servers under control so no worries there.


I'm trying to redress the work-life balance.


Having said that, I'll be working throughout the Xmas periods......4 new sites to go out by 1st Jan.

Still a way to go yet! Wife wants to move to another area of Spain next year where Winters are milder for her arthritis. Possibly around the Valencia area.


So still a lot on my plate really......but you gotta keep busy and have challenges and goals.

Yeah the missus piped up the other week about us moving in around 10 years time to a bungalow!!


We aren't that frigging old!


She has seen her dad struggle and they can't afford to move so she want's to set us up for old age :roll:


My goes are to stay put my challenge is to convince her :lol:

I think you guys are a bit young for a bungalow Stu. :lol:


The wife could do with one because of her arthritis through......so I suspect that's what we'd go for.

 

Best thing we did when we moved into a bungalow....... :thumb:

Never far from the lav or the kitchen!😀

I know.......you think where did that time go?


My pension kicked in 3 weeks ago, so now my aim is to live to 100 so I can screw as much dosh out of them as possible.


Frankly I don't know how Pensioners in the UK can survive on that pittance.......it's not even possible here despite the cost of living being so much lower.
