    i found a bike sorta like the one i'd sent the pic to robin

    only less miles, more money and looked like it had been took better care of

    the first salesman i'd talked to earlier in the week was showing it to me

    and said lets write it up

    i said i would give no where near that price

    he kept saying we're making unbeliveable deals

    i kept sayin i doult it


    we go inside, they write it up

    sitting around

    you know the drill

    i offered em 7k less than they wrote it up for

    and wanted my bike shipped home

    no way they'll do that

    back and forth they knock some off and i stick my offer

    mean time they're selling bikes

    you know this because horns start blowing people start clapping, acdc's thunder struck starts playing wide open



    we go back and forth

    i know they can't make the deal

    the last time dude comes back from talking to his manger

    says you seem like a good guy and all


    we shake hands, as soon as our hands touch

    horns go off, thunder struck blares, people clap and he says

    you just bought a bike :eek7


    huh?? ring the bell

    huh?


    place is still packed it's about 7:30 by the time we do the paper work they change the oil and service it

    i left about 11:30, on a brand new used indian

    we decided to hit the super slab

    jim had told me he didn't wanta run over 70


    as i went around the ramp out in front i was thinking this shit won't last 5 miles

    i was wrong a 1/2 mile later he pasted running 80 :lol3


    i really wanted to strech out the indian and see how she did

    but stayed right there

    at bill's mom's we loaded bikes

    north bound

    a stop at cracker barrel for a late lunch

    wrecks and bad traffic we were back at jim's shop before dark

    we didn't unload, just unhooked and went to the house

    like a horse for the barn


    i stopped by bills tonight and got my bag i'd put in his truck :lol3


    an awesome trip ( even if it was the most expensive bike week i've ever been too)


    (maybe more than all of em added together :photog)

    dude after i threw the chrome slug into the ditch

    my pussy ass hasn't ran fast enough to find out yet :dunno



    i gotta admit the bars seem high, wide & the seat sorta pushs me to far forward

    but theres a lot of room for robin

    it does feel like it's got more clearance than the chrome slug

    lol your welcome to it

    when i was talking about the first bike i was thinking i could leave it down there and fly back

    but went they threw out they'd deliver it for free, i grabbed onto that like a dog to a bone

    got an email from bike haulers last week it's supposed to be home on the 8th


    the guys in the shop, made me feel a little more comfortable with the idea

    by the way this little chrome part broke off in the wreck



    B13551DE-CFDC-45F8-92FC-27B389C4DBA7.jpeg


    i took some gorilla krazy glue and glued it back on and it's held, i couldn't belive that

    i thought about the olympus @klaviator had recommended

    but decided to go back to fuji, i'm used to it and i'd have spare battries

    didn't find the deal that @HPPants did, but not far from it
