selling my vn750?

I put my bike up on CL last night.. within 10 hours had a call, guy is coming out to test drive it sometime this week... I am asking $3k

I don't wanna sell it, but $3k will pay off the truck or give me money to relocate to Wyoming in 30 days.

I won't budge on the price because I don't really want to sell her, but if the offer of $3k is made, she'll be sold ... I guess I gotta give up the pleasures to make the long run better...

sucks to make this kind of decision.. but I guess that's what growing up is all about right?

maybe she won't sell and I will get to keep her... lol..

Sorry to hear you need to sell the Vulcan. I wish you well in your move to Wyoming. Hopefully you will be able to get another scoot before too long.

hahah im in the same situation with my monte carlo right now.... i could really use the money that someone is supposedly going to offer me... i really dont want to sell her... i love that car and theres alot of history in it but i could really use the morey right now... if you do sell you can always get one in the future when the money is right.... good luck either way man..

Good luck with it, and don't be a stranger if you sell it.

Relist for $3500.00 with the low miles you have. Is this your decision or HERS, because it does not sound like yours.

Do you have it listed in any of the larger cities in MI listed on CL as well? That may help.

And only 7300 miles? Day-um.

I bought the last year for $2600, but I re-listed it for $3500
I don't want to sell the bike. It's not HER idea- the girlfriend actually wants me to keep it... I will be living 1.5 hours from Sturgis, S.D.. We'll see. I could use the money, and by paying off school loans and moving expenses without taking extra loans out, I will be able to buy a newer/bigger bike sooner.

I will miss having my vulcan, but it will make my financial situation better right now...

life decisions dont come easy. it is hard on a person to give up something they like.it is your choice to sell it or not. money seems to rule our life at times, makes us do things we dont want to do . be comforted that there are many in the same situation as you .
the hard thing is that you dont want to sell it ,if you dont you will regret it and wish you would have . if you do the same thing go's. I say keep it , you are moving to a new location, better job, better money . it may take a while to pay off the loans and such, but the time away from your bike is not easly replaced if you enjoy rideing. when i crashed my old bike it took me 10 years to get another one , something allways came up or i didnt have the money when i found one i wanted . at least your girlfriend wants you to keep it .
hate to see another michigander leave the state , would hate to see one leave regretting selling his bike. keep it , things will work out . and to think , you bought a truck so you could take it with you .
good luck , and yes , dont be a stranger
