When I joined LB in the spring of last year it was at the unfortunate time that one of LB’s members had lost his life…even though I wasn’t a member of LB at the time I felt compelled to join. Not only did I want to be part of a community that included and acknowledged london bikers as a whole, I wanted to be a part of the community that showed that any london biker was not alone…no matter what…and that day we did Ali proud.
After that sad day I did some soul searching…why did I want to ride a bike?..why did I want to be part of a biking community?
The answers came think and fast for me. That year we did an awesome trip to France…guys, you remember that one? What stood out for me was Puppy doing 170mph+ (with video evidence) just to make the meeting point …that was the day I met Barro at stupid o’clock in the morning and I was thinking “who the hell is this and what have I let myself in for???” I remember meeting everyone at Cubana… Cez taking pictures of our bikes…Puppy showing us the footage of his mad dash…and Charlie showing off his new ride. That was the best France trip af all time and I know the guys who came on that trip will back me up on that…awesome…end of.
Further on in the year was the Breast Cancer support rideout. I think that we all remember that and what an emotional weekend that was for all of us. Seeing a load of grown bikers cry (myself included) was so close to home and that will be a feeling that will never be forgotten…nor replicated.
Guys…what I’m trying to say is…if you want to keep LB going…stop all this petty keyboard worrior stuff and remember why you started riding a bike and why you joined LB in the first place.
I’m leaving this forum for my own personal reasons, but I hope that those who run this site will not loose touch, and keep this site going for those who it’s supposed to benefit.
Over and out.
