It's not your age. You must be breathing fumes in those enclosed spaces. I'm old and I think the F6B is totally fugly . It looks like Honda is trying to compete with Victory for the most massive, ugliest, two wheels on the road .

Good point. Pants do make up for a lot!

The search engine doesn't work very well.. many of the 5 and 6 "garage spaces" are yard parking spaces.. for example the one in apex is a single carport but has 5 parking spots listed

Oh, that's my fault. I did the search kind of fast and I ignored the toggle for garage "type."

Nice...blame it on the guy who lurks often enough that it's off the page quickly had to go back a few pages for that one and I think you are right...that was me

Could you let 6635 Rabbit Mnt know that the 80's have called and they'd like their interior decorator back? Faux columns for a TV nook? Place looks like it was xeroxed from an episode of Dallas.

How can so many folks have that much money and such unimaginative taste? Half the 1M+ houses listed there look like they had a contest to see how much overpriced finish work could be stuffed into a room. 7000+ square feet of built-in bric-a-brac.

And a plow truck, a work area, a kegerator/freezer, bicycles, generator, etc...and he gave his sister his jet ski's to make room.


It's the toys that take up the room.


And I hear they are planning another garage for the camper!

I should have lifted the carpet to see what was underneath...OMG burnt orange indoor/outdoor floral with puke green highlight's.

It's "cover up" carpet is actually improved with dog puke.

I can't agree with you more. I see the most ridiculous crap in houses and sellers often think they can just throw a sign in the yard and it will sell for top dollar. But these sellers? They are on a completely different planet when it comes to expectations. When they first listed it in 2007, they wanted $6.9MM.

Classic.. I bet they pointed to some of that gawd awful tile work and said "you know how much this stuff costs? 6.9 is a steal for what we put into it."

I'd consider 2.5M fair for the property, but as a condition of sale I'll expect them to scrape and haul off the offending buildings.

But a nice lot, but for that sort of $$$ I'd want more headroom
