Re: Sad Day

Im sorry that it must go. I did the same thing with my last bike and regretted it from the time it left the driveway. Bought the LT 2 months later. You should wait and get one more summer of riding. Easy for me to say. Hope to see you riding again one day. I see you have my favorite color also. Wish I could use 2.

Sorry, to hear that you are going to sell the bike. If it was me, I would only sell, if you were short of cash. If the bike is paid for, keep it. Because as soon as it out the door, you will be kicking yourself.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT.

Re: Sad Day

Glad you guys made it through that tight spot you found yourselves in a short while ago. Enjoy the ride.

Mark, that is most excellent news. Good for you... on so many levels.

Sounds like you will very quickly double the miles on that LT! Prepare for a wild ride: CCR is awesome...
