Hi Rich
Sorry to here about your shoulder injury and that you have decided to give up two wheels as a means of transport, but I understand your reasoning and at the end of the day your health has to come first. However this doesn't mean you still can't come to meets at the Raven when we have them if you have four wheels instead of two for transport. Hope you get better soon.

Thanks Ray, and to all who wish me well with my plight and my decision.

Even though I will have four wheels rather than two I will check out this site every so often, and if there is a meeting at the Raven or anywhere else local I will come along to see you all.

That's a shame to end your scooter ownership.

My first thought after reading your post, was to just get a lighter one.

The difference between pushing my wife's "Suzuki Burgman 200" and my "Tmax" around, is like day and night. When I wash our scooters, my Tmax is heavy to move around the back yard, but the Burgman 200 is really really easy to manage.

Ill be in Bali for a holiday in a couple of weeks time. There I will rent a Honda 125cc step though scoot. They are fun. They are superlight, and still quite fast. I enjoy riding them when I go over there.

It will be for sale but not yet. Once I have got myself a car. But I am selling my Givi panniers. If anyone is interested see the for sale section.

Feel for ya...
And yep dislocated shoulder is bloody painfull.
You need to do whats right for you, and it sounds like its a considered approach...
Just never say never..
That 'lil 125 that gets you out for an hour or so in the sun could be on the cards on a summer or two's time... Or not
Enjoy what you need...
