Geez, I bought bikes just so I could finance something.
I didn't really have anything else in the way of debt/credit, so I wanted something to keep my credit score/history in good shape. I was going to finance a trailer I bought, but that ended up being too much of a hassle since I was buying it out of state. So another year went by with my credit stagnating...
What was I to do?
Luckily I was able to work with a credit union we deal with here at work, and they were able to help me out. Otherwise, I'm not sure what I'd have had to do. Maybe a boat?
