Default That SPECIAL feeling that only comes a few days every lifetime

I am sitting here enjoying it right now! I have owned about 15 bikes in my life and there is something wonderful when you are getting ready to go close another deal. My son and I are leaving about 5 AM tomorrow to drive 353 miles to pick up my NEW (to me) 2012 Cross Roads. It is a year old and only has 559 miles. Got the check in my wallet, car gassed up with the helmet, jacket and other gear packed away.

I know it is just the kid coming out in me, but it is hard to get to sleep. Unless you buy a bike or two a year, this feeling is rare and special.

Most days 5 AM comes TOO quick----not tomorrow!

When I picked up my pin, i was overly happy. I could imagine what people were thinking. Pouring rain, some dude on a motorcycle with a big stupid grin from ear to ear, that was me lol.

Congrats
