    I can relate, I've been living in pain for so long I'm use to it. My four wheeler crash really tore me up.
    To be honest, I was thinking the same the other day. Mine has been sitting for awhile, due to health issues. Going to doc tomorrow, and hope there's a fix to how I've been feeling. Gonna hang on to them for a while and see what happens. Been so dizzy for 4 1/2 weeks now and every sound buzzes through my ears and makes me dizzy. No way I feel safe or comfortable riding like this.

    Larry:

    I understand how you feel. You know that I have been feeling the same way
    and made a genuine effort to sell my bike last fall. I had some "bites" but I
    think I may have been priced a little high. I have not been on my bike since
    the holidays. I hate not riding but s&%t always comes up and I have so much
    to do on my property that the bike takes a "back seat" to everything else. I may
    drop the price on my bike and give it another shot at the end of March. When I
    semi-retire in three years, I may scoop up another bike just to play on. I will have
    more time to ride then. I think about Easy and how lucky he was to survive and
    I know that as I push 60 years old, it will take this old man a long time to heal if
    I have an accident. I love my bike and I love to ride. I probably should sell her,
    but I know I will miss riding when I no longer have a bike. Funny thing is, my wife
    constantly tells me to keep it and just ride when I can. I have a very special lady
    for a wife. She wants new floors. I may sell the bike, let her have new floors in the
    house and buy another bike later. Good luck on whatever you guys choose to do.

    If I sell mine, it will not be my last bike, unless I decide that I wanna give it up
    and not ride anymore. She would not object to me buying another, when I had
    more opportunity to ride it.

    I third that. We talked about selling Daryl's Bike a few times. Each time his eyes start giving him problems, but I just keep telling him he will know when he can't ride anymore and them the bikes will go and not until then.[/QUOT

    Can't say we didn't talk about this happening.... Do what's best for you and her (just letting her sit there isn't good for either of you!) and if that means finding her a new daddy...well, it's tough. I know it was for me and to be honest, there are days when even riding the Wing for a few hours takes days to recover from. Hang in there bro...use the heating pad more, relaxers less...(I'm down to one or two a month - except during cold fronts!).

    Good luck - and feel free to send me the specs and/or a flyer - have plenty of folks stopping in the store looking for good bikes all the time.

    Jim

    Just an angel with no halo and one Wing in the fire....
    (Yeah, couldn't keep the Wing Stock either!!)

    X-less, My lil' Pepe has a new daddy now....

    Default Don't Sell.

    Between my issues, and Senior daughter, I've started to sell several times. Even had some one that I high-balled bite.


    Hope you feel better.
