News from Pasta

Hello everybody peeps,

Just wanted to tell you that today is my last day of work, I hope for ever. I'm retiring at long last. Time to get more miles on the Bobber!

I have to say it's an odd feeling. I'm looking forward to it immensely (it was one of the reasons I bought that old ratty BSA) but I have so much identity wrapped up in my work persona that it will be strange to think that I'm no longer a working stiff. But hey, what a great problem to have!

- Pasta

Hey Pasta,

Congratulations mate. A big day and my heartfelt best wishes and hopes for many years of relaxed puttering with and riding your bikes.

Cheerio,

Congratulations. I retired 11 years ago. I haven't missed work too much.

Congrats, I retired 4 years now after 36 years on the railway. It took two years to settle in to our new life. Now I can’t ever picture working. Motorcycle riding maintaining our yard and seeing our son in Seattle is more than enough to keep me busy.

Hey @Northern bobber , I'm in Seattle too, so hit me up next time you're in town and we can get together. I have two bikes so even if you're bikeless we can get some miles in. Goes for everyone else on this forum too!

+2, I did the deed 11 years ago as well. Terminated my company and never looked back.

20 years ago for me. Have never given it a day’s thought. Congratulations. All kinds of new opportunities for enjoying life present themselves when you’re not consumed with work and are open to them. It’s all about what I mentioned in another thread ...QTR (quality time remaining). Make the most of it!
