I haven't heard of the layoffs, and hopefully will not either. Worryingly though they had to borrow on 15% interest which means they are below junk bond.

Dude! Who knocked you up? Was it Kenneth? When he said he had something for you in exchange for the bike you really should have verified that he was referring to money. Devil in the details, you know.

Naw, the wife is taking off from the end of June to September some time. It'll be great to have the summer off, but there goes the fun money. Oh well, the sleepless nights will be worth it.

Just buy the bike and convince the wife it is a "high performance baby crib".

I could say it's going to be my son's first bike in 16.5 years.

Jump on it, after the sprog is born you won't have a pot to piss in. Get your ducks in a row now or you'll wind up like me and spend 6 or 7 years in "Well Used" Motorcycle Hell.......

At least you'll hone your mechanical skills....
