Default My Kingpin is dead. Long live the Kingpin

It will soon be time to look for another ride. I was rear-ended last Thursday and it looks like my Kingpin will be totalled out. I'm not seriously injured, just bruised up. It will be hard to find another bike like a Kingpin.

My bike was totaled when my girlfriend hit me with her car on the way to MY charity ride lol. But it allowed me to buy my victory. Besides my foot still all messed up I'm happy for the most part.

A Jersey boy, Nitrospaz? I was born in Hackensack and grew up in Paramus. I've been out west though since 1992.

I'm from saddle brook. Right next to both those towns basically. Don't think I could ever move out of jersey.. As much as I dislike it here. Haha. And glad you found a new bike so fast. Best of luck with it and don't ever let a loved one drive behind you lol.
