Yup when you get the niggles and they don't let up it's time to say adios to the boat.
I was a keen motorcyclist for 30 years or so, competed in Trials and Motorcross when younger and have had many road bikes.
Got a job mending them and the rot set in, bikes did not get used as I was biked out all day long and i used to start having discussions about "cost effectiveness", with bikes sat in the garage hardly turnning a wheel.
Got rid of me trusty VFR750 and bought a Blackbird to try get a bit of excitement back.
Did less than 2000 miles in two years.
Thought a different bike and riding style would do the trick, got rid of the Blackbird and bought a CB1300F3. In two years, did 1500 miles.
So got rid of everything and boaught a boat.
I have never regretted it and don't miss the bikes one bit.
When the niggle won't go away, its time to take notice.
