Hacky always gets first crack. Heh.
Of those two bikes I'd go with the one on the right. As I say to idea wife, the one on the right looks bigger.

Well, #559 just followed me home today. See you guys on the road. Been too long since I've been on an 1150...I swear it feels like home.

Very sad. Hopefully it goes to a good home. Best of luck with the sale.

Idea Man is officially not going to be in the Sacto area this Saturday or Sunday. My boys soccer league called and they need a coach and that means taking a two day class to get certified. I seemed to logical choice since I am certifiable. I apologize for bailing on yous guys. It may be my last chance to coach the lads, so bio-family had to come first.
So I'm leaving Monday. Heading to Colorado. Route unknown at this time.
At least it won't be hot or anything.....crossing Nevada....in the summer....
Whose bright idea was this?

Dude, figures you'd put it up a day after I made a deal on a different one... I would have gotten yours to, you know, keep it in the family so to speak.

I know you think you won't ride it, and you hate it sitting around. I went through exactly the same thing with my 04 GSA. It was sitting, no time, different interests, I was riding dirt more, etc. A year after selling it I was kicking myself, and spent a long time looking for a worthy replacement. I thought a 1200 GSA would do it for me, and that was a mistake as it's such a different bike from the 1150s. Seriously, just really think about it a while longer.

I've thought about it for awhile, and it really hurts, but I just don't see things changing any time soon. I love this bike, but I only love riding it on trips, it's just too big for around town. The funny thing is, most of the guys who have contacted me are guys who owned one and sold it, and now want to replace theirs.

I really want to do some serious riding in the future, but realistically, I'm looking at ten years out, so, I need to free up the garage space. Whoever ends up with her is going to have a real sweetheart though... they better love her.

Beautiful bike. Even though I can look outside and see mine, I still like looking at the pictures.

Tell you what, you buy the bike, and I'll throw in the shock for free.

You can always use two.
