    I sold my Kawasaki Versys tonight. I did not think it would sell this time of year when I agreed to post it for sale in exchange for buying my Mustang a few months back. :(

    Selling a bike is one of the most painful things a person can do... I lost many nights sleep going through exactly what you are.

    Well, if would cheer you up any, you can give me the Mustang, that way you did something noble, helped a less fortunate guy out who doesn't have a Kawasaki or a Mustang :D You will be blessed with amazing karma and never have to be sad again. :laugh:

    I remember when I exchanged my subaru with a cracked head gasket for the car I had now.. Gosh all the tears that went down my face.. Actually, I was crying for joy. I was amazed I got that thing to the dealer for high trade-in before it blew up.

    I've been trying to sell my bike all year. I'm both excited and dreading the day it sells...

    Better to sell it than have it stolen... I still miss my Valkyrie

    I'm sorry for your loss. I liked the look and ergo of the Versys when I got to get on one. I sold my -14 a couple of months back to make more room for my Mustang and get some money to the local no-kill shelters. It was weird letting her go, but ultimately the right decision.

    Any pics of the Mustang?

    Nice! How do you like it?

    I picked my 03 up in Dec of 02. I drove over to my friend's dealership the night of the 3rd when the Snoqualmie Pass was bone dry, and by the time I got the car out of detail the following day at noon the Pass had two inches of snow on it. Talk about a fun drive home.

    I really like it. I kept thinking I was going to trade it in for a V8 come December but I do not think I am going to do it. Mainly because I think the new 2010 models look hideous (I bought this 2009 just because the new model was so ugly and I wanted one before it was too late) and because I am liking the V6. I got this one loaded with all the mechanical features of the higher end V8 so it is pretty tricked out. It has the upgraded suspension, larger tires, etc.

    I was in Detroit last June when I saw the first '10 models and kept wondering WTH happened to the rear ends of those.

    Nothing wrong w/ a V6. As long as it does the job and keeps rubber side down, you're golden.

    When I saw it the first time I thought to myself "Is that a new Toyota Supra?" When I saw it was the new Mustang I almost cried. What where they thinking?

    "Global car" mentality now. I saw the memo but ignored it. Tis the times we live in (sigh.)

    The SHO looks like a Fusion/Taurus/500 now. I guess it's supposed to be easily recognizable.....how, I'm not sure.

    Man, I know how you feel. I had a 2002 Honda F4i for a while and it was the best bike I've ever owned. I can't wait till the day I'm able to return to two wheels.

    Last April. My bike was getting heated grips installed and I was on my way to pick it up. It started snowing when I got a mile away from the dealer. Thankfully it wasn't too bad.

    If you see this one rolling around Portland, it's my old -14 I sold to the spouse of one of Portland's finest.

    And finally the little blue girl which doesn't come out much anymore. Just never seem to have time to enjoy her :(

    If you see this rolling around portland or vancouver it's my old baby :(

    Though I fully expect her to be wadded up in a scrap bin as I sold her to an 18 year old kid who took out a loan in his mother's name and was taking it straight to PIR to drag that night... Ohh the decisions we regret :(

    Nice paint work - did you do that yourself or have it done? I really like how it's all the way down the fairing and even on the tail.

    You should be! You did nice work, sir. That bike would get a second and third look if I saw it go by.
