Lock the bikes up and forget about them for a month. Sometimes absense makes the heart grow fonder. When I have my 'bike love' low points I just have to leave it behind for a bit. This stops you feeling like you should be riding or fettling and you can get on with other stuff without feeling bad.

I do detect a quieter forum though these days - or is it just me?

If interest is waning, it's good time to sell it now as the summer is on the way :lol:

My interest seems to go in cycles! :roll:

The problem with a hobby/sport/obsession like ours is it is easy to overload!

My advice is take a brake from your Kona for a week or two by locking it away from view. I bet the the old spark will come back to you,it does with me.

Al, its in the blood. :D

Yup, I'm the same. I think its just the winter months for me. I have a stunning Yeti ASR in my office waiting for a few bits but at the minute I just cant be bothered.

But sunny days are upon us, so I'm just gonna dig out the Hei Hei and get out there
