Loaded my bike in the van for the last time....

This afternoon warmed up a bit (to around 45-50), so I took her for one final spin. Loaded up the van for a trip in the morning. Yep, sold my 954. It's a really odd feeling, as I haven't ridden it much and don't get much enjoyment from riding on the streets anymore, but sitting there looking at it this way is almost sad. It's such a perty bike, and I'd like to keep it, but it is hard to justify owning a bike that never gets ridden.
Anyway, I'm just venting here because it almost feels like I'm taking a pet to be put down in the morning. I'm sure the new owner will treat it well (and will be telling you all about it shortly).
Goodbye to the stars 'n' stripes.

You had by far the best looking 954 there is BDA!! The dude who bought it is pretty freaking lucky to get a bike that sweet without having to put all the time you did!

BDA

I totally know how you feel. I am going on day 4 after the bike sold. I gets easier to deal with as time passes.

You thinking what I am thinking? Cheap 600. Like a fat chick, pick it up real easy, treat it like crap, ride it hard and toss it aside when you are done.

Re: Loaded my bike in the van for the last time....

Thanks for the kind words all.
I'm on my way now to meet with the new owner. He is a new member to the .org, so I'm sure there will still be pics floating around.
I'm not replacing it with another bike for the street yet, but may down the road.

Re: Loaded my bike in the van for the last time....

That think will make an awesome looking stunt bike.....

Bash the tank in, add some bigass sliders, a shorty can, and a 12-Oh bar.....some leopard fur to cover up that Earl Scheib paintjob disaster......and presto......Schwiiiiiingg!!!!!!!!!

Sorry to see the Blade go BDA. At least now you can bring home an FZ1 - have your cake and eat it too.

Re: Loaded my bike in the van for the last time....

Condolances on the sale. I know how it goes.. sold my dirtbikes and a few other things.. just needed to leanout the toybox. It's fun to have stuff but for me I actually get stressed out (feel bad I guess) when I have toys that don't get used (one of the reason my boat and Jeep are also for sale).

Onward and upward... I think I see another FZ1 owner in the works.. or maybe a Silverwing?

to your bike - that is one beautiful 'blade. I hope the R1 brings you as much joy as the 954 did, BDA.

Re: Loaded my bike in the van for the last time....

That is one great looking bike. I think it would hurt more to sell a bike that is soooo custom in looks like yours. It has YOU written all over it, you patriotic bastard you!

The good news is that getting rid of one toy only makes room for a new and improved toy!
