And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friends, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain ...

Ok, no easy way to do this ... but I'm leaving BM! My subscription ends in a couple of days and I won't be renewing. This is not a call for support that I have seen so many, many times on this site, I truly will not be renewing!

Many of you won't even know me which is testimony in itself that I have been spending very little time in here over the past couple of years.

For those that do know me, all I will say is that both BM and myself have taken different paths of late. BM has been heading in one direction and I another.

That is not to say there is anything wrong with the route BM has taken, indeed part of me is very happy to see the website become the success it has because I know all too well how much time and effort (and cash) my good friend Matt has put into it.

It's just that it is not the same route that I'm on.

Those that do know me, of which there are lots, will know full well that I'm not into rallies, I hate camping (with a passion lol), I spend too much of my time working (either for work itself or for RoSPA) to make any of the meets and my views, in particular those relating to motorcycle safety (ahem), do tend to vary greatly from the general populus on this site.

However, I've thoroughly enjoyed my time as a member (and indeed as staff), I've seen many good times, I've seen some bad times, I've witnessed a number of controversies (and caused a couple lol) and I do truly hope that BM continues to get stronger and stronger.

There are many people on this site who I hope to remain friends with for a very long time to come and there are those that I hope to never see again lol!! As Bilbo would say, I don't know half of you half as well as I should like and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve!!

So farewell. It's been fun and emotional. I am sure I will see many of you still at Squires and around and those on my Facebook will of course remain on my Facebook. And if there is one thing I feel I can say about my time on BikerMatch it is that I did it my way!

Goodbye. xx

Not another one!!...All the 'old' grizzlys seem to be leaving for pastures new...One of the first BM'ers I met at my first BM meet-Cat'n'Fiddle 2008- A man-sometimes frog-with such a wealth of knowledge and information, a great knack for stirring up a hornets nest, and gentleman enough to apologise if ever he were wrong.. A great assett to BM, has been and sadly will be missed on the forums..And on the site in general.. And the idiot above was also at that first meet!! Take care Geoff. When did you say I'll get paid for this post Geoff?

Ah man it will be really a sad shame to see you go and I hope you're still gonna come to our events this summer. We need to meet up and have a beer!

Thanks so much for your humour on the site over the years mate and for all your time and support as staff. Really will be a loss to the site if you choose to leave.

Sorry to hear you are leaving. It's a pitty, as you appeared on the forums quite a lot when I first joined. Giving good strong un-biased opinions, especially on road safety issues. We didn't actually meet, but not to worry. Good luck for the future

Aww buggarations! Geoff I will miss your postings , you are an eloquent writer and were an excellent moderator, thanks for giving your time for us all. I expect the gas company keep you pretty busy with the adverts eh? I certainly hope I will see you and Rachel at some biker venue or other. Take care of each other, all the best Sandi
