Almost bought a bike last night.

I was ripped out of my gourd last night and got online. Was looking at bikes on eBay and ran across one I'd been looking at quite a bit. It had 1 hour left on the auction and I almost put a bid on it. So glad that I didn't simply because of finances right now, but DAMN, I want a bike again so bad it's unbelievable. Mental note: don't get on eBay and look at bikes when you're drunk.

You're a damn liar Cap'n. You didn't almost buy anything. I'm sick of your teasing.

pansy, heck they even have financing for most things through ebay now.
just because you don't "have" the money, doesn't mean you don't have it.

I'd rather have a $200 bike than be bikeless.

Believe me, I don't have the money. I've looked over my budget many times trying to find the money. I'm spending every dollar that is coming in right now and simply can't justify the purchase.

I wish it were that simple. Believe me, I've been looking at many different options, but right now just isn't the right time.

You need to do some buying low and selling high... Do you have any marketable skills?

I vote Duc. But if Cap ain't shelling out the cash for a Yami, I'm pretty sure he ain't laying down the jack for a Duc.
