It's great to see the young un's interested, but I worry about the long term future, Sure some will find an interest in our old clunkers, but so many people nowadays can't change a fuse, God help em if they fancy an old cycle and have to do some maintenance on it. No doubt they will look for the app on their phone to do it *dunno* *pull hair out*
I like bike, especially my 61'SR

Today my 29 year old Yamaha Thundercat riding son took the replica RGS for a short ride, his first on an old bike. On returning the comments were...
"That's rubbish."
Then...
"Brilliantly rubbish, I so enjoyed that."
And...
"The brakes are terrible."
Followed by...
"I nearly rode straight past you for a ride right around the town."
Finally...
"I was smiling all the way, can I do another lap?"

I think we may have a convert!
