I still have to de-TAT mine, and straighten out some things after Tincup Pass, before it goes on the block.

Oh, welcome.

"straighten out some things" ....sounds minty ! And yeah, she doesn't like yellow. Must be a thing with Canadians.

Thanks all.

It's what we call "kick it straight".

If you cannot fix it with a hammer, duct tape, and / or WD40 it must be an electrical problem

Yeah!

Got the letter from TCF saying they agree to our short sale terms. Looks like I'm finally going to lose the anchor of a house in Shoreview in mid-May. Divorce sucks.

Maybe, just maybe, a new (er) bike is in the works yet this year!

It's good to have a plan, even better when the plan works.

I need to go ride a KLR, DR650, nc700x and '12 WeeStrom.

Probably end up buying a '92 Virago.

Wish I was taller but being short may make it easier to rule certain bikes out. No run to Moon for me this weekend. Kids are gone!

I have a 2011 KLR you can ride. I am up at Tousley Motorsport M-W-Th 5-7. Ask for Tim in the Internet Dept.

I'll try to swing up next Wednesday. Usually a night of non-activity.

Thanks...

Yes .... yes it does - just lost about $30K when mine was all said and done. Takes a few years to recover ....or a few more for me. Now the -ex isn't keeping up on house payments, has almost lost it a couple times and I'm going to have to be the bad guy. Again.

You do have things to look forward to ... like those free weekends and some upgrades...younger faster etc. etc.

Gordy,
It's been almost 4 years since I was officially divorced but a poor housing market and 2nd mortgage meant my ex and I had to stretch out owning the same home. With a new love in my life now and better home sales the time had come to put it on the market.

I still have a small personal note to take care of but nothing like what I'm dealing with now. Looking forward to officially saying goodbye to parts of my old life and hello to the new.

Here is my Gordy! Miss ya buddy!
