Default What was I thinking??

Well I listed my Kingpin on Cycletrader.com about a month ago. Found an 08 HD fatboy that looked like a great idea. I had 4 calls in one week to look at my Vic!! I finally came to my senses and realized..WTF am I doing??
Needless to say the ad was deleted and I am living happily ever after.

just a fleeting moment of temporary insanity that's all...
It passed without any real physical damage.
A bit like a bad dream hey,
leaves a bad taste in your mouth for a while don't it?
Main thing is you came to your senses,
just put it down to experience.
All will be well.
After all you are Victorious!

Hey, at least you came to your senses before you sold it. Could have been much worse.

Keith, all you'd have to do is take that FB around one corner or curve and you'd go back and hug your KP. But maybe you knew that without having to try it.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.
Cure that ugly stand up license plate with the cheapest and best laydown bracket. Click this:
