    Positive words of encouragement from Joe and Gary; the worse thing for me is seeing it there all the time. Whenever I mothball it and put it somewhere where I cant see it i'm fine then someone suggests a ride, I dig the fucker out bring it home prep it then nobody can make it on the dates they agreed head but then I dont put my name down for the rides posted as it seems a lot of hassle to drive 60 mile round trip to go and get it, use it once, have to look at it and work around it for ages until I can be bothered to take it back to my grandmothers and put it away (which is a massive pain in the ass)

    I cant be asked latley. Bikes been sorned since Feb but wont sell it.
    1. I,l waste the money lol!
    2. when its gone i know i,l miss it even through im not using it.
    3. Like garry said it,l only cost more if i want to replace it after selling it.
    4. Better to have it in the corner and not use it than not have it.
    Just seems lot easier and less bother to go pedling latley lol!

    Maybe we should do a vets return of the MoJo ride... then again I probably wouldn't put my name down because it would be cold and muddy and the bike would need washing..... fingers crossed I dont loose that loving feeling altogether
