Wow! As someone else said in that thread, to beat this he'll have put up the For Sale post while still riding it home!

I've bought and sold a few bikes in my day also, but I guess I'm just a novice compared to Blake!

I feel so - normal - now!

gosh...thanks for the reminder

yes, I bought Don Karle's awesome KTM 200 woods bike, then sold it and the ST1300 so I could pay cash for the Stelvio.


jeez....a guy just wants to do something nice for his better half and his history just dogs him

I'm going to go underground for a while

sad truth, but that hot red frame is looking good. 2 Stage urethane from a can . Garage stinks, respirator needed.

Ride the motorcycle all week, go snowmobiling on the weekend?

Sounds perfect to me... need more weeks like that.

S. FL is 'swimming' with migrating sharks right now.

From earlier today... One less to worry about, plus a tasty dinner?

PS: You know how big gnarly climbs look really small in pictures? Turns out the same thing with sharks...

Just might have to throw the kayak in the Dodge and head down to West Palm to paddle with all those lil sharks. Some big tigers usually prowl the inlet off of Sebastian, but don't see them very often. They love the turtles that lurk there and are definitely to be avoided. Most of the migrating one are 3-5 feet long and reported to be mostly spinners. I use to see lots of sharks inside the reef on Andros, and the locals would never go in the water there.
