I'll buy it from you for Bail Money when they've got you locked in the Pokey!

On second thought - as little as you gave for it, mebbe not: it's a better than even chance your bail will be more than you paid for the bike...............

Good news and bad news. The bad news is that I probably won't pick the bike up for at least a couple months (they threw in free winter storage too!) The good news is that my license probably won't leave my wallet until then!

I work with a personal trainer that specializes in MSF scores and bench press. You might want to come out and spend a month here.

Is he the same one who can teach Longride how to ride his motorcycle while it's in the shop?

He's still brushing up on his 150 mile training rides

Holy crap, I would be tearing my hair out if I just bought a new bike and I couldn't even ride the damn thing! Throw it in a truck and c'mon down. You can stay in the East Suite while you break it in trying to keep up with the Vee.

Sounds good. Following a V-Strom at full throttle would be the perfect slow and easy break-in speeds for this bike. If you were looking out the window and 6 inches of snow with freezing rain on top, the last thing you would be thinking of is riding in that crap......unless you are Sachi, and then you just spike up them tires and go!

Sounds like a hell of a deal. If I was living in the U.S. these days I'm sure I would have bought a Buell...and probably would have been similarly torn over which one to get.

With all the snow, rain and ice we've got here, I can't imagine what it's like out there! Better to be safe. Beside, the wait only helps build the excitement.
