I've loved bikes since I was a schoolboy, growing up listening to the "Sounds of the Isle of Man TT" on vinyl records, narrated by Murray Walker and played at the highest possible volume, much to the puzzlement of the rest of my family. If you've found your way here it's likely that you share the same love and enthusiasm for bikes as I do, and for that I'm truly glad of your spiritual company.

While adding a gentle reminder that this is a recovery mission without a completion schedule I remain hopeful that, as the project continues, you'll revisit every once in a while, just to see how things are progressing. Don't leave it too long!
