47 years

Post by beat » Mon Feb 29, 2016 5:27 pm

hi gents,

47 years are enough.

started working just out of school, was busy the rest of my live - until TODAY :!:
shure, there where abouth 5 weeks a holiday a year, and a nice traveling on the BSA halfway around the world, but the rest - just working at least 8.4 hour a day, at least 5 days the week.

so, this evening beat is going in pension, he cut two years to early,- so this says: more time now ! ( but less money of cause :( )

anyway, it looks for more progress by the projects of the cdi and the electric starter and a nice trip I am planing to France, Ireland, Scotland and England.
anyone at home by the beginning of june 2016 at the island where the B50's are native :?: ;-)

will have a good one tonight...

Have a good one beat, you are assured a warm welcome in the SW of England, I think any one of us in the bottom left courner of Blighty would put you up if you need a place stay. :cool:

You will go well in retirement, because you have things to occupy yourself with.
Here is a statistic from the Aussie public service. The average lifespan of a retiree who retired at 65 was 3.5 years, 60 was 10 years and earlier was a longer life span.
I retired at 55 so that i could live a long and happy life. But there is no escaping the JOBs.

Happy retirement beat. I Hired in at General Motors at 18 years of age. As per company and union contract one could retire in 30 years under their "30 and out" plan. I worked 30 years and 20 seconds and got the heck out of there at 48 years of age. I'll be 75 in a couple weeks so it's worked well for me. <1011

yeas friends, this is good to know, and I guess we will meet if it gos as planed, - thanks a lot.
as I do have a Tablet PC with me this time, I hope I can keep in contact to the B50 community whilst traveling.
and who says as I do need urgently a new piston and a new rear brake plate by this trip :?: :?: :oops: :oops:

interesting stuff, - retire in the US ore AUssi ore CH.
here, I have to keep alive at least until I am 83 years old to get all my monay back I was paying during the 47 years, this in rates of 2012.00.- SFr. a monthly incomes now.
otherways, someone else is getting it ( by doing overtime , say getting older than 83 years :smile: )

but maybe it is better not to know for how many years we will last......

Good on you Beat. I feel I may have to keep working for a few more years to payoff the house before we can consider it. At work I am still entertained but it would be nice to actually achieve a few more goals. One being finding that missing plane :ban .

I expect I will be still going at 68 unless we can find a way to get out. Lynn wants to work till she drops as we have not a huge amount to retire on. They say if you haven't got $1m in super life can get a bit tight. My friend has just retired and he has a stable of BSAs to work on and I am sure I can find things to do, even so I envy you guys :mrgreen: .

I don't know what a " stinking " pension is :lol: but I have now 37 % of my average monthly incomes by the pension.
as I am 63 now, for the next 2 years I have to " BYO " ( bring your own ) to get near to the 100 % .
after 65, there will come a other about 45 % , so it will work somehow.
lucky my " castle " is payoff, and the BSA projects are wayting for me..... <216

good luck for you John by finding the plane ore a super nugget maybe ??

Have a great retirement Beat, I'm sure you will keep busy.
If you get to Scotland, give me a shout, I've got a spare bed & there is plenty to see near me.
I have now finished with working off-shore, mortgage paid, off-shore served it's purpose well for me. Now its time to get my life back, 30 days away at a time is too much. Sorted with a new job now. Working shifts but with plenty of time off for entertaining guests, especially Swiss ones!

Cheers,

Pete

Somehow I don't think you'll get bored with all your free time Beat.
If you decided to travel to Scotland, your welcome to make this a half way stop if the dates don't clash.
Hopefully you won't have to do an engine rebuild and make a rear brake plate :lol:
