    Yves, I’m so pleased to hear your progress friend, it must feel SO good after being constrained for so long!

    Listen to your doctors though mate, don’t put yourself backwards by trying to go forwards !

    (I sent you a pm by the way).

    That is excellent news Yves but please take it easy
    I understand how frustrating it can be but slow and steady recovery is better than over doing it and putting yourself back 10 paces
    Cheers

    Hi There,
    Jagbruno and myself are just back from a two days trip to a beautiful Mediterranean location, I won’t say more at this point as I still wish to keep my new bike under wraps, some of you might guess wich one it is, but I will not make it official before this beauty will is in my workshop.
    The present owner of the bike gave us a fantastic welcome, I wish to thank him and and his lovely wife for the great time we spent together in there beautiful home.
    A lot of thanks to Bruno, who pushed my weelchair for two days and made a short test ride with the bike. A test ride he will never forget...
    What can I say about the bike: It’s a Seeley with a perfectly tuned engine, built by one of the best Norton specialist in the world, I won’t say more for now...
    I am still in the unknown about my broken hip, this two days trip did make me very happy but unfortunately very tired as well.
    Next monday to the doctor for more news, good ones I hope...
    I have posted some bits from my former bike within the ‘for sale’ section of the forum, good deals to do.

    I will keep you posted...

    I think I know which drop dead gorgeous Seeley you have, a beautifully photographed bike, my favourite pin up, built by a cool Nortoneer.
    Be nice to see it in Holland this year if you are healing OK and can be at Kampen.

    If you or Jagbruno are too busy to use it I would be happy to take time off work and ride it all over the best Norton roads in Europe for you. I will pay for petrol, road tax, tyres and keep it in new condition.
    No need to pay me, I will do it for nothing but a daily supply of croissants and coffee...
    Be patient with that hip and get well soon.
