A few of you (Maks, Grover, Gulpacoke, BuzbyU) knew Gerard Viola and what happened to him a few years ago.
Long story short, his cheating wife gave me his most valued possession, his Gixxer 7/11 as she knew he wanted me to have it. However, the police began conducting an investigation into his suicide and the next thing I knew, his widow gave a familly member with a fleeting interest in bikes the motorcycle as a desperate attempt at damage control. Sucking up my disappointment, I tried to help out the new owner with everything I knew about the bike. At least it would be in good hands and valued for what that bike meant. All I asked, pleaded, really, was that if he ever decide to get rid of the bike, that he contact me first.
Imagine my surprise when I see his bike for sale right here on this board....
I know that V2Neal isn't related to Gerard, and let me make that perfectly evident, that I imagine he simply purchased the motorcycle at some point during these past two years.
I'm a little disappointed that it will now cost me $ that I can't afford to spare for something that should be with me right now, but I'm going to look on the brighter side and say that this is, without a doubt, fate that I happened to check the board and find his bike for sale one half hour before I leave for Northern Wisconsin (Bloomer) which is two short hours from the Twin Cities.
If anyone knows V2Neal, could you have him contact me ASAP at 847-420-6225? I'm logging off now and headed up north. He can also contact my parents in E.C. at 715-695-3277 as the cell coverage is weak at best....
