Yes, loving my job. Eight months now at Queensland's new Motor museum. Started as "Something to do" while I couldn't travel due to border closures and I'm just really thriving; so many plans and projects. It's exciting.

I am well! Still living with regular bloods and scans to keep an eye on the cancer, but it's been two years now off treatment and life is good. My energy levels are back, the pain's manageable and the brain fog has faded: the immunotherapy appears to have done it's job! (Science is a wonderful thing!) The lymphoedema still prevents me from enjoying full days on the bikes the way I used to; a couple of hours is my limit now, but I'm alive and kicking and enjoying life. Can't ask for more than that

I am thinking of selling Nyx though. Muse is getting closer to being done and I have my eye on a 59 Triumph Bonneville T120, but that's going to require selling something

Trace,don’t be too hasty, I’m of the opinion that you can’t have too many bikes!

Good to hear Trace. Don't worry about selling a bike. There is always another on the horizon. What did you end up doing on the Honda?

Good to hear you are alive and kicking.
I had a Triumph in the 70's, vibrated too much for me. Hopefully the new ones are better.
Your life, go for it, of course a Ural would have room for your pup.

Great to hear you are well!
I had to laugh at the old Triumph joke...my first bike was a 1969 Trophy 250, I was 16 and in high school, believe me when i say that bike made a pretty good mechanic out of me lol!
All the best Trace,
Nigel
