    Finally got 1 and then....

    Well been looking for a dub for my wife for a long..... time now. They are either way over priced or way the heck aways from where we live. So found 1 today that was 3 1/2 hrs away. So I jumped on it. A 2005 with 3000 miles. Decent price and look pretty good with a factory rack. So after a 7 hr round trip, got home parked it in the garage to surprise my wife when she got home. Then had to take dog to vet(back issue), sat in reception area for 1 1/2 hr..... wtf Now after a 7hr round trip in hell traffic Im not in a good mood, but kept my happy face on as I know businesses can get surprise problems etc.... they all do now and then. So got done took dog home happy happy. Now time to show wife her surprise. Guess what, she copes a attitude, you know you try to do a good deed and get shit on gezzzz LOL00T0T_2tCSSgK1ZRK_600x450.jpg00606_hF9NyBgHFnD_600x450.jpg

    You have bought her the best learner bike on the planet. Not overpowered, not underpowered for a newbie, easy to handle. Hope you have the MSF beginner rider course in mind for her. I think this is the best way for a new rider to learn. Just my opinion. Hope she'll be thankful in time.

    Give it time. If the idea doesn't gel with her, there are a lot of people on here that will buy it from you, or...let's say...I know of some that NEED a newer, better condition bike (hi Fred)
    I ready your post. You're killing me!ImaPoser.gif

    Are you saying then, that you have dainty little fingers that cannot fully depress all the necessary keys?

    I will say though, that that your jab did come through loud and clear.


    VERY nice looking bike Gulfrider.

    Mike, to err is human. It really is OK for you be be human. We know you are just a big old teddy bear anyways who just happens to come with ten decimal point accuracy.
