I Guess This Is Goodbye

I guess as quick as I showed up on the board I'll make my exit as well.
I found you guys back in January, at that time evryone was armchair quarter backing waiting for the nice weather to come. We got to know each others attitudes and personalities more than anything through posts and PM's. Come to figure it was a small world and a handfull of you and I had crossed paths b4.
It's kinda strange to look back and reflect at how much a website kept me sane these last few months.

The bike just drove off in the bed of the new owners truck and with it I guess you could say my key to "The Club". I have no intentions of getting another bike anytime soon, maybe even never, I might as well let you guys know that right off the bat.
No, I didnt have a bad experiance on it, no I didnt go down on it or anything like that. It just was it's time to go, for whatever reason, right or wrong, good or bad. God's got his plan.

Thank you guys for being there when I was pullling my hair out, when I was pist at other things, when I needed someone. There are those of you out there who know exactly what I mean.
Some people may just look at this as a web site with anonymos people and screen names. I don't, this place as whole has been there for me when others havent, that's saying alot.

I'll still be around, maybe not as much but I'm here. Thanks for all your help, all your jokes, and all the fun. I still look forward to meeting those that I havent. And to those that I have what can I say, I hope I was exactly what you thought I would be.

I'll see ya when our roads cross, and just because I'll be in a cage don't think my hearts not on a blade right next to ya.

Why so extreme? You can keep lurking around and the weapons and hunter's corner won't be the same without you.

I'm sure we will be talking.

Sorry to see you leave but now tell us the REAL reason.

From the very first time I threw my leg over the seat on a bike I knew from that point on I'd always ride. Dirtbikes, fourwheelers, cruisers, sportbikes....just about any "motorsport" vehicle. Personally, I don't see how giving up riding happens "just like that". If you sold you bike for money issues or something I could see that but posting up saying good bye to something you love and to CLSB is hard to believe. Its almost as bad as giving up sex for the rest of your life.

Not ripping on you, just trying to understand. I know I'll never give up riding unless I'm physically not able. What can I say? I'm an addict!

I don't require any of my friends to have bikes. Just because you meet people through riding, doesn't mean that's the only reason to hang out with 'em. I don't know if you've noticed, but every week at Strats there are a few people that cage it... and they're just as welcome as everyone else!

We don't have enough smart asses on this board, so you have to stay. Just because you don't have a bike doesn't mean you're not a part of the group.

I'm glad I met you on Saturday. In person you're just like on the board... MOUTHY!!!

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
