The time has come.

It has been seven months since my little accident. The fracture clinic has signed me off, the physiotherapist has signed me off.

My new boots, trousers, jacket and helmet arrived a couple of days ago. That only leaves one thing — something to sit on.

I’ve been doing a bit of shopping around, and the insurance is going to sting me, but the best bet looks to be something like a five year old Honda Deauville. Cheap(ish) to insure, capable of large mileage, and reliable. If I can keep that for two or three years, the no-claims will build up and I should be able to think about getting something newer, whether it is more powerful or not.
