Buying truck vs. Bike

Just bought a used Nissan Frontier pickup. Why do I hate buying a new(or used) truck, but I won't hesitate to buy a bike? Do I have a illness, and if so, can it be fixed?
I can see myself buying the new BMW or the new DL650...does anyone else suffer from this disease.?? my wife wants to know if I am unique, or if others are so afflicted.

Lol! Yup, it's an illness alright... And the only cure is a new bike!!

(I think lots of us have the same affliction... I've got no problem shopping for bikes and accessories but I hate shopping for anything else!)

Yup. No interest in a new car. I'd buy a new bike in a second if i could.

I have never bought a brand new car or truck and tend to keep the used ones untill they are not driveable. I have bought 2 brand new bikes and a multitude of used ones as well as one new Quad.

It's not a Tractor....It's a LOCOMOTIVE!! Chugga Chugga
Woooo WOOOOO!!!!!
