gYpSy michelle here !
Your posts just about brought a tear to my eyes! I had no idea that what i had once upon a time meant so much to so many..I am humbled.
Yes, life has a funny way sometimes....I know many of you have moved on and probably aren't reading this, but I'll explained what happened anyway.
Timeline 2005....I was about to get married and he and I had already purchased a piece of land in Arkansas and literally the day we were going to make the down payment for a loan to the bank to break ground (contractors standing by). "Mr. Wonderful", my ex-fiancee of 8 years living together suddenly announced he "needed to let me go" and decided on somebody else he'd been secretly seeing. No reason, no ryhme. I went through a totally personal crisis and my life suddenly had the brakes slammed on. I had to give up everything I had and start over---right down to a computer. I had to figure out what I was going to do with the emotional turmoil and depression I was going through and Alaska seemed like a wise choice considering I'd always wanted to move there for the adventure in me and it turned out to be everything I hoped for. In 2006, I bought a house I'm living in today. I rode the VN750 until 2008 when parts became so very difficult to locate and my aviation job didn't afford me the time to work on the Vulcan as much as I needed to. I parted it out and rode the Honda until 94K miles until a rebuild then more trouble and I'm about to retire that. A friend offered a Harley Softail to buy in 2009 as he wasn't going to ride anymore, so I bought it and commute to work and ride the roads of Alaska with it now. I'm looking to find an "Alcan-Worthy" (highway from the lower 48 to Alaska) bike sometime soon and finally get to take a vacation (been a very long time) riding across the continent again.
I had successfully ridden the Vulcan 750 well over 250K miles in two different bikes and 3.5 engines!
Anyway, I found this site through a search that Phillip Martin told me about--he purchased one of my parts on Ebay and I told him who I was.
Thanks again to all of you for caring as much as you did for what I once had the priveldge to share with you ! I hope everyone is doing well and riding their 750's forever
