What exactly is wrong with it? Or is it one of those "it's just getting old" deals?

It might sound flippant, but just buy a new bike.

Life is too short to not be doing something you enjoy, and funding the things we enjoy doing is why we work in the first place. There are those who will tell you to avoid debt and save your pennies til you can plunk them down for a new GS; I say that money is merely an abstract concept and debt is simply a number.

Good stuff.

Should have saved a little more abstract concept for a bigger house, though. Garage is now way too small.

Meh, screw the house, how many square feet is the garage?!

I made that mistake myself. I don't know why I comprimised, it has gotten me nowhere so far.

I'm still looking for that 1,000 Sq ft. house attached to a 5,000 sq ft. garage.

I've given up.

I have 5 motorcyles that are spending their winter inside my house.

Consider a ramp in your attached garage that goes into the basement.

Uh, don't do that. The large garage merely becomes an excuse to own a lot more shit I know first hand....

Good as new. I went to the doctor today and he said my leg looks real good. He said the bone looks like it is healing good and I can go back to work on the 4th. I am ready to get back to work and out of the house I just hope my leg is ready for 8 hours of walking. My ankle is still stiff and I have trouble wallking up and down steps but most of the walking I do is flat. Hopfully going back to work will get my leg stronger and back to normal soon.

So that means that next time you are going to peer pressure me into that powerline hill climb?

I hope you have a DVR so you can stay caught up on your daytime soaps after you go back to work.

Yes, very correct.

I have a 36X36 attached, a 24X30 unattached & a 30X70 barn....I still have motorcycles in my house.

Hoarder!

This. I enjoy tinkering with stuff as much as any other red blooded American, but when the tinkering time far outweighs the fun time, I reexamine. I have no problem spending money on toys, mostly because I could get hit by a beer truck tomorrow, so I may as well enjoy shit now. I'm bad with the desire for instant gratification.....

Yep we can race up it.

Who needs soaps when we have all the drama here.

Well on the bright side it would be a beer truck....a fitting demise for a man.


You could swerve trying to miss a baby opposum, lose the front end, gather it back in, only to lose it again in the ditch, gather it back in once again coming to an ass puckering stop. As you collect your thoughts you see a lucky "heads up" penny. You pick it up, not knowing it carried some horrible flesh eating disease. You are admitted to the hospital just in time to save one leg, the rest of your limbs have basically melted away. On the way home from the hospital your wife swerves to miss the same baby opposum causing you to lightly bonk your head on the B pilar of the car. This causes you to choke to death on the gummy bear you were eating. (no doubt a get well gift from one of the FFs on ADV rider)


Dead is dead, but the manner in which you go should be fitting of how you lived your life. SCQTT
