I just sold my Honda.

2K. The guy didn't try to haggle. He was a little younger than me. Loves vintage Hondas. Has a garageful. We know some of the same people. He was even wearing the Tourmaster boots I used to have. And he had a cute girlfriend who belongs to a riding club of chicks who ride old Hondas.

Tough to see the bike go. But it went someplace good. Thank god.

Good deal, man. Glad to hear it went to a worthy home. Makes it a little easier, doesn't it?

I've had to sell/give up a few sundry items in my life that I really hated to part with, but fortunately I found buyers/takers that I knew would appreciate them, take care of them and use them perhaps even more than I ever did.

I'm glad you were able to sell it and were happy with the outcome. Good stuff.

Grat's on selling the bike! It's nice when they sell quickly, then you don't second guess yourself as much. You can always pick up another when things get better financially.

Thanks guys. No pic of the GF, but she likes to clean bikes she wouldn't be into you dirty KLR freaks anyway.

Yeah, same with Mrs. Lockjaws 69 Kharman Gia. It went to a good home. The Honda is in good hands. Someday I will have money again. And I might just have to get a 750.

First official thing I've done on my neighbor's (???) wifi. I'm back baby. Move went good. Been here since Friday and I've already been fishing once.

Dude, she's LOVING it. The apartment is OK, but we're right by two playgrounds and fishing and she likes it being just the three of us again. And climbing big stacks of boxes. She loves that.
