Well - looks like this is it! Desperate times calls for tough decisions, and seldom are tough decisions ever made!
The economy has forced the highly regretted, and deeply sad sale of my beloved Vulcan 1500 Cruiser that's being picked up this week. I'd say, it's akin to selling my right arm! I had so many life-treasured Rides on this, and it was a definite freedom few truly know.
Our separation is personally devastating, but as I've said earlier, I just can't enjoy the Ride given weekly news stories about downed bikes in L.A., and my adventure is just a temporary set-back.
I'm comforted at the same time, strangely, and wiser for the wisdom of its loss amidst the need to be here - a little longer - while at the same time, eyeing another beast... which would just be absolutely nuts to be caught on!
But, that's why I'd also love it! My Ride's not over.
As said at the end of the movie Gladiator: "Not Yet. Not Yet"!
