dread will you be having a divorce party ? |
: Man I wish I didn't have too I once massivley
: modified an old RD400 (bored to 430 tuned by
: stan stevens, engine put into an LC frame
: etc etc) and I've spent my life wishing I
: never sold it. I did have it about 4 years
: before I sold it.
: But I just can't have a custom bike and a 13
: our budget won't allow it. The thing is now
: there is no turning back I've bought my new
: bike using our holiday money (oops) and no
: holiday until the 13 is sold so pressure is
: on (Gulp).
: Sandra is very unhappy that the 13 is going
: as she loves it. We've been everywhere on
: it, I bought it just after we met so it's
: always been our bike. She's comfortable on
: the back, it carries all the camping gear
: and it's as fast 2 up with camping gear as 1
: up on my own.
: The new bike a VN1500 which huge apes custom
: paint etc is a beauty with masses of tourqe
: is not a 13. Not as fast and as I've just
: found at a rally this week end is no show
: winner or crowd puller.
: The 13 has won loads of trophies and always
: draws a stream of people who want to look at
: it. The VN however even though it's got
: masses of chrome and is the stereo typical
: chop shape didn't get one single person take
: a picture lol.
: Saying all this it sounds like I have
: regrets and I have some as I love the 13
: loads but I like the VN for different
: reasons. The VN hurts to ride above 75mph
: (apes look great but only to cruise) but I
: love what it looks like it's just what I
: wanted and maybe one day in the future I may
: be able to afford to buy my 13 back (No
: other would do as I believe mine to be that
: one in a million)
: I'll take a picture on the new bike and post
: it here but I know most will think I'm mad a
: straight 6 to a v twin. It's been a hard
: thing to do and when I look at them sat side
: by side I feel like I'm having an affair and
: guilt does overwhelm me.
: (With a wife in need of a holiday and no
: pennies for one lol)
: --Previous Message--
: DONT DO IT!!!
: I know what your saying. Ive only just got
: mine on the road after best part of 5 years
: altogether lurking in the garage but i know
: it wont be going anywhere. Ive been running
: my GS1000 for 23 years now and it will never
: be sold. Every bike i have had for any
: length of time i have deeply regretted
: selling afterwards. Think hard..
