    I wouldn't exactly say Koolaid, but...

    Just yesterday afternoon I did something I always swore I would never do. And, no, I didn't get a Glock. ( )

    I needed a vehicle. My old Honda isn't in the best of shape, and I am kinda tired of putting money into it. I don't have the time to fix it, the money to fix it, nor (anymore) the interest in fixing it. So I'm selling it. - Which is another story.

    So, I went shopping. Looking for a used car, I realized that I couldn't afford anything that was actually worth it. (One of the 'better' deals I could find was a 2001-3 Civic with over 100k miles for over $9,000- no way) So, I started looking at used motorcycles. I found a great deal on one (it costs me less monthly- with insurance- than just a car payment on a car that's not worth it) and snatched it up.

    So, I am now the proud owner of a 2004 Harley-Davidson 1200 Sportster Custom. And I love it.

    Heck, you are just a hop, skip and a jump from all in. May as well go ahead and spend the extra dough so you can top it off with this:

    I can't believe how much they want for used cars now days. Crazy expensive for those little fuel economies.

    Well stay safe on the bike. Both My wife and I ride. We have been on bikes for 20 years.

    Sweet ride I used to ride a Kawasaki myself but lost my nerve after a Toyota took it out from under me at a stop light. That was a great bike though; back in 1980 I took 35 days leave and rode from California to Virginia down to Florida and back to California.

    Practice defensive driving. I still own three motorcycles myself but gave up riding on the street years ago before people texted while driving. I shutter to think what it must be like nowadays.
