Had to Say good by to the Rebel!

I think tomorrow is the last day my Dad will have his Rebel.
It was sold and I think going to get picked up Monday.
So I went down and started it it up and ran it around the block a couple laps to clean her out. Its been sitting for over a month covered awaiting its new owner. So I at least go to say my last good by to her. We'll miss her but not that much now that Dad is cruisin the 750 Vulcan.
Any how Via Con Dios good Rebel.

My Dad went into the Hospital last night. He is getting an emergency surgery as we speek. However My wife and My Mom are ready for you. My wife is a Notary. All papers are ready and signed by dad before today so things are still good to go for the sale. The Bike ran great tonigh after sitting for just over a month. Its gonna be missed, but we are glad your getting it. And wish you guys the best of luck with it.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad I hope everything turns out ok, he's in my thoughts and prayers!!

I really wish I could have met him tomorrow. Guess that means I'll just have to ride the Rebel back up to see him when he gets better.
