Default Had to sell the bikes.....Major Bummer:(

     

Hey everyone. About a month ago my wife announced we were going broke. We had 10 grand in savings about six months ago and that had dwindled down to 3 grand. We've had tons of extra unforeseen expenses. To stop the bleeding I decided we had to sell the bikes. That would build our savings back up and cut down on the extra expenses of running and maintaining the bikes. It was sad to see the bikes go and I know I did the right thing. My computer also went down and I'm accessing the internet from work right now, so I can only post during lunch for a while. I will be looking at buying used bikes somewhere down the road. In the meantime I hope to keep in touch with all of you. Stay Safe and the Strykmaster will ride again. BTW, the guy who bought my 450 was at least 65.......maybe pushing 70. I asked him if he knew what he was getting himself into. Then I fired the bike up and took my last blast down the street riding a 5 house length wheelie on the way back. I then told him....."Are you sure you know what you're getting yourself into?" He wouldn't even take a test ride and he paid CASH. I hope he doesn't killl himself. LOL.

That sucks man. Things will turn around for you. Taking care of family is always top priority over leisure activities.

For the record, I wish I had 3 grand in savings. I'm about 2500 in the hole after my vacation, and still spending. Oh well, I've grown use to living paycheck to paycheck while my wife was in college. Not anymore now that she's finally working.

I'm about to set off on my own venture, and finally start my own business. Alot of researching, a little sweat, and I'll meet my goal of doing it within 6 months. :

I've come close to selling mine twice, but was able to find another way out. As much as it hurts, it's better than the alternative. That says a lot about the kind of person you are. Best.

Man I am sorry to hear that brother.

Sounds like you did the correct thing though, you can always buy another bike.

Good luck man.
