Default Wanting a new/used bike...

My fiance is leaving me, and I have a ring I paid about $6500 for (I went through a friend and got a deal on a stone). It appraised for $10k. I want to trade it for a bike, and understand that I am sure I will probably have to bring some cash to the table.

Is this even a possibility, and if so, where would I start looking?

My Low Rider outlasted 3 marriages. And a few girlfriends in-between.

Sell the ring, buy a new bike with the proceeds.

Take a bit of comfort in knowing that, if she hadn't left you before the marriage - there's a better than even chance she'd brought you 50-times the grief after saying "I Do".

Classic,... as women will cloud your mind, riding will clear your mind. It's good for the soul aswell.
