Hi, I'm Ira, 60yr young lad, (in my head), living in London, photography and the outdoors are my main passions, even more so the older I get and bushcraft was something I was quite good at when I was a lot younger, so I would like to see if I remembered anything I learnt back then, learn some new tricks, and try and put them to practice. Motorbikes were my other love, but I sold both my bikes a couple of years ago as they were just sitting around getting dusty, my plans are to save up and get a new, ( probably secondhand ), bike and go off riding and camping around the U.K as there are lots of places I haven't been yet and that niggles me a bit, if that doesn't kill me I will maybe go further afield.

Hallo from Berlin!

Are you still able to ignite a candle?

If yes, your chances are good that the other skills will come back too.

Greetings, you gotta get another bike mate, what did you have.?
The last two bikes I had were a Triumph Tiger 955i, fantastic engine on that thing, the other was a Kawasaki KLR 650, wish I hadn't sold them. I am maybe thinking of getting another Tiger 955i, you sound like you are into bikes, do you ride ?.

For my sins I do.

Always had bikes, since about 14, back end of last year decided I needed to try A BMW before I get too old, had two now, an early 1150GSA and now a R1200gs, what a revelation!! Genuinely wish I'd discovered them 35 years ago.

Stay safe

I've thought about going down the GS route myself, I haven't ruled it out yet but that Tiger engine was sublime, I think I have unfinished business to take care of.
