Worst Bike Lending Experience?

Several years ago, I had very tricked out Harley FXDWG. I had pretty much stopped riding it in favor of my BMW. Well, a very good friend had some reverses and lost his bike (and everything else) in a divorce. As he got back on his feet, I decided to help him a little and told him to take my "glide" and treat it as his own. He insured it and kept it in pristine condition. If it needed anything, he did it. Finally, we came upon an agreement for him to purchase the machine. As fate would have it, he crashed and totaled the once-proud Harley. He got out of the hospital and, true to our purchase agreement, he came by to give me the first payment. Naturally, I collected the insurance money and told him to put those payments into the "cookie jar" and go buy another bike sometime. Not long after that, his luck ran out and he was killed in a traffic accident.

I sure do miss my friend.

Mike
