I sold my Harley yesterday...VERY mixed emotions! On the one hand, it was the "adult" thing to do...whatever that means...and will help out.
On the other hand, I've not been so attached to a material possession in all my life! It is a beautiful bike...made only more so by the significant number of hours and number of miles I've spent on it. I've got my fair share of stories to accompany the 3+ years I spent with it and I will miss it...dearly.

The current quandry is how to spend the money we made on the sale. It isn't a significant sum, but it does need to be considered. I have a couple of personal debts to pay off, but I'm wrestling with the bulk of the cash and how best to use it. I'm considering, in no particular order, another "cheaper" motorcycle, a boat, a jet-ski, dirt bikes, enhancements to my truck, various little things (new golf clubs, new drumset, trip to Vegas, etc.).

The problem is I know what I should do...and I don't want to. I should take all that money and pay off another bill. It's the "adult" thing to do...but I don't want to...

I guess I'll spend the better part of today thinking about that one...

One last picture of my beloved bike...

Do the "adult thing." There's much psychic gratification from so doing.

But then again, this IS Yer Old Man speaking.

Great pic, BTW...

I just stumbled across your blogspot and remembered when I did the "adult" thing to do...whatever that means..... When I sold my 96'Heritage Softail Special. It hurt for a while, but it helped fund my daughter's first year of college. Just wanted to let you know I somewhat know what you are going through. I still get around on two wheels some, but of a different type of twin engine.

I have no room to speak to this... I seldom, if ever do the adult thing. But... I think YOU should do it. ;)
