New look for 2014

Postby crock4 » Wed Sep 04, 2013 2:43 pm





This will be my new look next year. Pulling the plug. Will start SS Jan. Quit altogether in June. Visit daughter, and son-in-law in Ohio till it gets too cold then do the snowbird thing back to Fl. Hope to start putting on some serious miles then. The only problem is I cant believe I'm this damn old already. Seems like just yesterday I was 17, and off to join the Army. Sorry to bore you folks, but I get excited just thinking about it..... :D :D :D

Your dog's got the right idea.
Good luck with the retirement I hope to join you soon.

Hey Bob,

I gather that you are hanging up your working boots, but not your mc boots. I am sure you will quickly fit into the scene. I recommend that as soon as you give up having to work, go on a vacation, as long as you can. When you come back you will be out of 'work mode' and into 'just doing mode'. Watch out for the 'honey dew' though :D

You must be prepared, and have a plan for your post boot hanging. Get the GW tuned up for all of the rides.

Thanks guys for the well wishes, and advice. Hope I run into all of you at some time or other. I tell everyone I meet about the great advice, knowledge, and folks found here on this forum. Hope the Wingadmin keeps it going for a long time. It is like having a live manual, that you can ask questions.

I've been "easing" into it for the last five years! I finally made it official in July and filed for SS. This week I filed my paperwork for my pension. No sense in waiting until I'm too old to enjoy it, and I have plenty of things to do to keep busy. If the day arrives that I'm bored, I'll find a worthy charity or hospital to volunteer at.

You sure are going to enjoy it, not getting up mornings and off to work , but after a while you will say this is great. You get up mornings and don't have to do a thing. At least you tell your self that ha ha :)
Get that cup of coffee, and turn on the computer and see what's going on with friends on " GoldWing Doc's "
Age here is 74 and retired 9 years, and loving it.

I retired 8 years ago.
One day last week, my wife asked, "What are you going to do today?'
I answered, "Nothing."
She said, "That's what you did yesterday."
My answer was, "I ain't done yet."

You're right, Phil. I keep telling my wife I have to get a job so I can get some time off to do things.
Amazing how little free time you actually have when you quit "working", but I would never go back.
