Returning after a few years away...

#1 Unread post by madjak30 »

It's been four years since I have logged in...life was a little hectic for a while.

I got re-married, changed jobs a few times, bought a house and my bikes have both been out of service the last two seasons (still trying to get repairs from crash ironed out for MT-01, and the ST1300 has a fuel pump issue)...fun stuff.
I won't be riding this season, but I will get to work on getting both of my bikes ready for the 2021 season :wink: :kicking:

My twin daughters graduated high school this year, so now life should have less drama...hopefully (no more spousal support or child support payments :) ) :?

I'm looking forward to posting pics and taking part in conversations again...glad to be back :motorcycle:

Madjak, good to see you back! The forums have been kinda slow but just recently there seems to be an uptick, and that's exciting.

So which bike are you most excited to revive, the ST or the MT-01?

Thanks for the responses...I've had a busy year. Lots of working with little time to spare...but things have now balanced out and I've got my work/life balance better ish? :wink:

I'd like to get both bikes ready, but I've got a car that I'm repairing for my daughter first, then probably the Honda ST1300. It's problems should be easier to fix.
I'm hoping to get some time in this weekend getting it on the road and possibly riding before the month is over.
August will be quite busy for me (24x 12hr days in a row :shock: ), but for July, September and October I'll be working part time (4x 10hr per week :wink: ) so I should have riding time :thumbsup:

I'll log in more often and share some photos of progress :D

Repairs to my daughter's car are not going as expected...still not road worthy...so I haven't touched the bikes.
My wife hit a deer shortly after my last post...we had finally bought her a brand new car, she got to drive it for about four weeks before the deer encounter :shock:
So her new car is in the shop. We had a family visit trip through the BC interior...HOLY CRAP!! I think all of BC is on fire, the smoke was unbelievable! The visit was nice and I'm glad they are relaxing the COVID protocols so that we can see family :group:
