I think I’m done owning motorcycles while I live in the city. At the very least I need a space for them off the street, and nothing in Edinburgh can sanely offer that. When parking alone would cost hundreds of pounds per month and/or require thirty minutes to walk to my motorcycle, ownership is a hassle, not a pleasure.
My VFR was stolen while I was away from home and during the theft my 400 Four was vandalised. I can’t keep such valuable things on the street only to always be heartbroken they’re gone or damaged. I chain them up and cover them but any more paranoia and the fun is stripped away again.
I might see about storing the 400 Four, but at this point selling it to someone who can use it makes more sense. Super bummed out, but that’s the reality.
