I know how you feel! I had to sell my bike when I left to work abroad.
Now I'm back and trying to buy a new bike but I keep comparing and feeling nostalgic

|Goofyfoot2001||Bought mine for $1500, sold it for $1500 but who knows how much I put into it. I'd love to call the kid and see if he still has it or if he's still alive and all. That would be gay though wouldn't it? Not that there is anything wrong with that.,,,|

Cowboy: I originally listed mine for $1500 as well. I let it go for $1100, which I thought was more than fair, considering all the hell I put 'er through. It's $100 less than I originally paid, but such is life.
KC: I don't actually own a car, so my bikes are my daily drivers, regardless of weather (though SoCal tends to have pretty good weather, fortunately!)
Who knows? You may just get your chance. Yesterday, I picked up a 99 Triumph Legend TT with all of 10K miles on it. I've been wanting to roadtrip cross country, and this bike is roadworthy enough for the task.
Now, to get Doomsday something equally roadworthy. He sold his Vulcan this morning. It feels almost sacrilegious to no longer have a Kawi of any kind at the house. Our parking spot just doesn't look the same.
Oh, and to answer your question: As normal as I'm ever going to get. I'm back to doing martial arts and power walking, and they seem to help with my mobility and keep the pain to a minimum, which is great...as long as I stick with it. There are some minor things I can no longer do, but it's no big. As long as I can ride, that's what matters! And thank you; though I'm a lurker, I kind of consider this forum my internet bike home, and will still be around. I also agree that it doesn't matter what you ride...so long as you ride!

hey Madaam, glad to hear from you again...I assume you are all healed up and back to normal now?? sorry you had to let your first bike go, but one door closes and another one opens....such is life!
You don't have to own and ride a VN750 to be welcome here, and if you were on the other coast, I would ride with you guys. It's not what you ride, but the fact that you ride it and not just use it as a showpiece that counts.

|cowboy_mike||What did you get for yours? I listed mine for $1500 but I think the starter solenoid crapped out.|

Thanks, everyone. I really believe she's gone to a better home than I was providing....though I could totally see me buying her back in the future, too.
Love the story about the Iron Maiden. I'm an audiophile with metalhead leanings (well, mostly a metalhead with audiophile leanings, really) and that totally made my day and made me not feel so bad. Obviously, my Thunder was named after the DethKlok song. XD
Well Tanner, would you guys still ride with us, though Doomsday is on a 1500 and my next one is very probably gonna be a Brit bike?
I both hope and suspect you're right, Chuck. The one I'm gunning for is my dream bike!
I referred Thunder's new keeper to this forum, too. I sincerely hope he joins. The information has been almost as invaluable as the friendships I've found here.

|thtanner||Sad to hear!! We never got to put-put around on VNs together. My attitude is the first bike always stays in the stable.|
