Reluctant Goodbye

Been a good 4 year run, wished i could keep it and ride it a a couple more years longer but alas if it has to go, it has to go.

Wont be riding anything else for now, the money had to go towards settling some dues. Perhaps a few years down the road if luck is on my side i would either get a Yammie Tracer, or probably a V1k, or push come to shove, Mark 3 V650. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Love the sharing of infos here, and all the best to you guys.

Current : Maroon 2011.
- Fender Extender - Radiator Guard - 19mm Nissin radial master - Nissin 4-pot caliper - SS brake lines - Osram Hyper 65W both low/high beam - LED 30w aux floodlights & 3w DRLs - Rear Hugger - Givi crash guards - Yoshimura TRC Carbon - Dynojet PC5 - Scottoiler - R1 shock with Ohlins 14.2 kg/mm spring - Imitation Givi Windshield - Rear Givi rack with 24ltr Givi top box - Bosch dual tones - Z800 stock mirrors.

Up next :

Best of Luck to you! I understand. You'll get back going again. I had to do a similar thing 3 years ago.

I would sell my car before I sold my last bike. Hope you don't regret your decision.

Good Luck.

Like Bayou, l was in a position once when l was younger in the UK & had to say goodbye to biking for a couple of years & common sense dictated that l keep my car, but after clearing up my new found debts (large mortgage) I got back on two wheels & it seemed even better than the 1st time.............
