Here Moby socialises with my Emergency Blood Bike.
I think we were separated at birth, both have white CTX's and I'm going for an assessment for advanced rider training and, hopefully, certification with a view to joining the blood bikers in this area (Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and North Wiltshire).
Good thing you guys do, I'll be talking to them on Sunday as I know they have a stand at the Frampton Country Show that I'll be attending with the RBL Riders.

Went for a short ride after visiting mom. Took a few photos. Thought I'd post this one separately to see how many likes I can get.
This is my twin brother on the right:


Hahahaha, I don't have a twin brother. This is a selfie!!!!!!
"Why the long face" HAHAHAHAHAHA

So, I've been riding to visit mom everyday and getting used to the same scenery. Today I decided to look for something and noticed these 2 murals on the side of local stores.
Funny how you just don't see something you pass everyday until you intentionally look around:

Lots of changes in my life. But that is how life goes.
I've enjoyed being on this forum and the great folks here.

I've ridden the CTX less and less over the past 2 years and mostly on the battery tender the past few months.
So, yesterday I sold her. I have a bunch of photos to remember her and the trips.

The gatherings which I didn't get to attend were still great because of the reports and shared pictures.
There is always one favorite memory associated with each thing in ones life.
My favorite memory is reading along as @shane made his first solo cross country.
Sharing experiences like this makes it all great.
Thanks to @menosabe for making my rides safer.
Videos by @djrose007 and seeing his enjoyment of the CTX is/was great.
Many of you have made a big difference and I can't name each of you or this post would reach a timeout before I hit POST hahahahahahaha.

Thanks to all of you for your kindness, helpfulness, & friendliness. And especially all those pictures/videos you post.

I'll pop in time to time as I fade from your memories. Thanks for letting me be a part.

@willajabir, you THINK you'll fade from memory... but you won't.
Don't be a stranger here. Feel free to continue to post a photo or two of whatever you're up to when you do stop by. Whether riding something else or driving or visiting someplace or whatever it may be. We all find out what the destination is really like, as well as the way points along the journey, when we actually get to those places.

Holy cow, right in the feels!
Larry, you have imparted so much wisdom to the community in general and to me specifically over the last four years. My cross-country trip relied HEAVILY on your suggestions for gear, navigation, and general motorcycleness. I have many more trips planned, all of which will give me more and more experiences, and even though every mile is a lesson, there is one bit of advice that you gave me that will ALWAYS pop into my head as I travel:
Make your GPS get tired of saying 'recalculating'.......
I don't want to get all mushy here, but I can't overstate the importance of your contributions to my growth as a motorcyclist, explorer, and adventurer. You made a difference in my trajectory, man. Thank you.
Don't think just because you don't have your trusty steed you don't have anything to offer the community here, either. It's the miles, not the nuts and bolts that rattle along them, that are important.
Take care, my friend.

--Shane

@willajabir Larry, enjoyed your company on this forum. It's a shame I never met you in person but you seemed like a good friend none-the-less. If I am ever in your area (it could happen), I'll track you down and we'll go for some grits with fruit! Maintain your great attitude wherever your journey is taking you...

@willajabir...2,000 posts and 370 mentions. Them good numbers. That's a good forum citizen! I imagine you'll be referenced, time to time, as in "Larry knows that one. Anyone heard from him recently?" But maybe you can use the Luke Skywalker dopplegänger move like he did in Last Jedi and make your Avatar appear here! Do you have a special whistle that your CTX knows and it come running? Maybe should have told the buyer about that.

Wait a minute, Larry, you didn't sell the Panda, did you? ;)


I wish you all the best!
