As The Wheels Turn - Part 3

"You really did it. You sold the Gold Wing and the Aprilia."

"I'm the son of a car salesman. I couldn't help it."

"What's next then?"

"Dunno. Have to think about that. You have any ideas?"

"I can't believe you sold our Gold Wing."

Doug, your killing me. I am getting a good laugh out of all this, but I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. This one really struck my funny bone. Cruise or cruise. Ocean or asphalt.

Being the son of a car salesman probably means "Everything" is for sale. They tell me this car selling gig, gets in your blood!

Hi Doug. I found your blog through Dave. I have been checking it now and then, and I really enjoy it. Your last few posts have made me laugh. I hope you decide to keep up with the blog! I've been reading some of your older posts, and look forward to more!

Smokey the Bear say's.. "Only you can prevent Yaght cruises.", Oh wait, sorry that was Harley the biker, not Smokey the Bear.

LMAO! My wife has the same exact bubble. Mine's close, but the Harley is a Heritage Springer instead of a Cross Bones.

You're almost making me feel badly for buying that Goldwing, Doug...

Fortunately the ride home took most of the sting away on my end!

Dave, you'd really laugh at the stuff that didn't make it past the editor (wife). ;-)

Rick, yes, everything is for sale if the price is right and sometimes it's for sale just because. I rarely get attached to bikes but I must say I'll miss the Gold Wing a lot.

BB, thanks for stopping by. Dave has a good blog for a Harley guy. ;-)

Mr. M/C & Joker, as you guys know, vs. wife are never fully in balance but constantly tip one way or the other depending on how much we want something or how much trouble we're in.

Northwynd, no need to feel guilty. I have pictures of you with the bike and no doubt one or two will turn up here soon enough. >insert insane laughter<
