Waving Good-Bye To My Bike

She rolled into a strangers truck without a wimper and didn't even look back as he took her away. I'm down to just two bikes, my Gixxer and Tiffs (Well my name is on the title and she isn't riding lately) EX500. The SVs new owner is here on the list but I'll let him make his announcement. Going to miss her but as soon as I move I get to pick out a new one........something to look forward to.

Sighs and congrats all the way around

The nice thing about selling a bike is the cash that is left behind when it's new owner leaves. But you can't ride cash, so go buy yourself something fast!

I'm going to be sad when I sell my GSX-R 750. It's one of a kind.
