I have been riding now for a couple years and recently my wife and I gave birth to our first son!
The past few times I have ridden I have not enjoyed it as much - I think, because I am concerned about the "what ifs" in the back of my mind.
I used to enjoy it alot, and wonder if this is just a phase I am experiencing because of the birth of my son, or if this extra sense of vulnerability is going to stick with me now.
So the questions are:
1) Will this feeling eventually pass, and I will enjoy riding again?
2) If it most likely wont pass, I would then sell the bike.
I would sell everything. I note everything I have to sell with the bike and wonder what a fair value would be to ask for it:
2002 Vulcan 750 - 14,800 miles - maintained and in very good to excellent condition. Oil changes regularly performed (every 3000 miles religously).
- New Meztler tires put on last year
- new Front brakes put on last year
- splines lubed last fall (all looked great with those)
- gear oil changed last fall
- coolant flushed and replaced last fall
- R/R relocated & voltage meter installed on dash
- westco maintenance free battery,
- LED marker and brake lights in rear turn signals for extra visibility
- National Cycle Low Boy Heavy Duty windshield with Chrome mounted hardware
- Protac Backrest
- Airhawk seat
- Slant style saddlebags
- Engine Guard
- Sears Craftsman Motorcycle jack (used only twice and like brand new)
- Dowco Heavyduty cover
- Dowco lightweight cover
- Chase Harper Aeropac II tank bag
- Harley Davidson Battery trickle charger
- 6 quarts of Kawasaki oil & 2 oil filters
- detailing stuff and few other small goodies (wash, wax, ect...)
The bike is two tone black and silver, and ready to ride! Unless noted above, the bike is entirely stock.
Just for the bike, it seems a fair price would be in the low 3000 range, but I am thinking with everything else that 3500 might be a fair price to ask - especially since the bike has so much new and needs nothing! I am in NJ.
What should I do?
