As part of my drive to minimize my baggage and cut expenses across the board, I decided to sell my motorcycle.
Combination of related factors: the hassle of having to drive 30 minutes to the storage shed in order to ride; the serious lack of time because of school; my still painful knees; and of course the on-going maintenance, insurance, etc. And thinking ahead, a cross-country move.
So... I took it out for a long farewell drive and then listed it on Craigslist. One day later, I sold it for $200 more than I paid for it.
Keeping my helmet, jacket, gloves, etc. Another bike in my future post-school and post-move.
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." -KFM
Hang in there, Toots. Your next ride will be SWEET.
"...My oldest daughters now, does not see eye to eye with me on most issues. For instance she claims to be atheist. She is also a Yankees fan. I don't know which one bothers me most."
