Is that yours with the checkerd flag tank? Cool, but they all are.

Never sold a bike, bought one in 98, kept it for 10 years until stolen.  Now after 7 months on the 695, I can't think of selling it (her) it's not like a car for me.

Was yours bought new or used, I wonder if it makes a difference. [moto]

I know how you feel. I was heartbroken when I sold my 1098, but the price I got for it made me smile.  Grin There will be another bike one day. It's just a matter of time. It may not be a Ducati, but it'll surely be on two wheels. waytogo On the other hand, that new Monster 1100 comming next year sure is looking good! [moto]

It is never a good feeling to sell a bike.
I did it ONCE.   Cry

...but sometimes life works out like that.
With a higher education you'll be able to afford all the toys in time!

So wild coming back 12 years later to the thread where you sold your first bike because you're starting a new build thread...

I had no idea you were local; I have been following your (re) build thread with interest.

I joined here 10 years ago when I bought my bike, I guess our paths never crossed! Welcome back.

Unfortunately not goes on in here (DFW sub forum) anymore, it was once so lively!
