    Hello and Bye all

    I have very much enjoyed the contacts here on the forum. In particular, I value the kindness of you who contacted and offered support when I had a bad accident and when the political upsets where I used to live were very threatening.

    Now, I'm in a more benign place, and starting a new life. It no longer feels appropriate to inhabit the previous persona. That was a Middle Eastern chap, and I am no longer he.

    I'll crop up again. 'He no longer being born....' and so forth.

    Ride safely

    Richard

    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    I have greatly enjoyed reading your exploits and recovery from misfortunes over the many years. Be well and be here.

    Knowing how that Bob Dylan line ends and even knowing it's a sterling truth, I still resist its inevitability.

    Thanks for all your contributions and I hope you're in a good place, in all senses of the term.

    Brighton would be considered a nice place. In fact the whole of southern England ain't too shabby.

    Take care and hope to hear something from you later.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    No, no, no. He is still a he. And he's just going to a better place. Probably Cleveland.

    You could just change your BF name and start posting again.

    The mods will allow it if you communicate your rationale to them.

    There was once a crazy ass poster called the Weak Link. An inveterate snark, troll and ne'er-do-well, rumor has it he was chloroformed and dragged off to an underground chamber where he underwent ECT and reprogramming.

    His account was voluntarily banned and he returned a kinder, gentler poster, assiduously avoiding the petty squabbles that had characterized his early career.

    If I ever figure out exactly who he is now, I'll kick his ass. I never really liked the guy.

    So, talk to CBad, take a break, and return incognito. No one will suspect a thing.
