Enjoy your week of summer! I'll be thinking of y'all in January!

Yes, I need a bigger bike. The SO even mentioned the advantages of a trunk and stereo.

Sparkplug could easily fit in the Tourpack.....

I was going down to the Vic dealer later today to 'look' at the new bikes. No chance of actually buying one now, since the Accord is now BACK at the transmission shop with another blown transmission (3rd time in 3 years). I'll likely have to spend the $$$ on a new car, instead of a new bike....

Nothing wrong with having your life in order. I have had four bikes since April of 2004, but I don't have any kids to take care of.

Ride the C50 until the wheels fall off. For the kind of riding you do, a new bike is a want, not a need. 8-)

Bikes are a luxury and Skrappie's bike is just fine for the type of riding he likes to do. Ride it until the engine is ready to go, then sell it to someone on the VR and get something when things like a new car aren't necessary.
