Still busted, a breezy walk on the beach and light at the end of a long,dark and very noisy tunnel.....

Well, the old Triumph is still sitting sickly idle in the garage and it makes me more peed off by the day. Apart from a long walk by the sea on Filey beach last Saturday, having no working bike has meant no escape from the wretched monster that is my tinnitus (the sound of the sea, like the sound of the bike cuts through it wonderfully).

 Filey Beach
Although it doesn't look it, it was 
surprisingly mild, but pretty breezy.
The way out...

No this is not some random stranger I met on the beach, this is 
my good lady wife. It's not the breeze that takes my breath away!

...the way back.

Still, there may be light at the end of this horrible nearly four year long tunnel as my solicitor has sent off our offer to the defendants. I guess there's still going to be some negotiation but the whole thing could be over in weeks rather than months (or am I being a tad optimistic?). Even so, I'll be surprised if I make that successful trip to HD Leeds (or wherever is going to give me the best deal on a Breakout!) before Christmas. Hmmm.....'Dear Santa.......'


  1. At least you have the sound of the sea to help with the tinnitus while the bike is down.

    And gazing at your lovely wife should block out all other sounds too.

  2. Yep, we've been together over thirty years and she still takes my breath away. I bet your old man's the same.
