I haven't been fishing much either. Gotta get at it.

Sorry work is kicking your butt.

Same thing here.. Haven't been after the dreaded trawwwts, not once..

I sold my FZ6 yesterday morning to a very nice guy in Indy.. I was sorry to see it go, but I really needed the space, and I really didn't need a sport touring bike, when I've got a dual sport touring bike...

And then nostalgia kicked in and I found a pretty nice 82' Yamaha 550 Vision with the sport touring fairing, excellent running shape with a bunch of new parts on it, including a stator (Vision's eat a stator every 10K miles)

I had talked myself into buying it for $600 and picking it up next weekend...


Then, I smacked myself in the forehead.. I've got 2 1980's bikes to take care of now, and not enough time to do that. Why buy another one to take care of, and also fill the room in my garage I just emptied??

It's a sickness.. And no, I'm not buying the Vision.. I sold mine (identical to this) back in 1987 to buy my first BMW.. Just trying to relive my youth, I guess..
