It's official, the R6 has a new home.

Well, my brother and I delivered the R6 to her new owner yesterday. Damn, I sure hated to see her in someone else's garage, but I'll have another in a few years. I sure hope I made the right decision.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

Don't worry Captain, we'll buy you a new one! Just as soon as Gas Man and Twisty decide to share their billions of dollars with the rest of us!

What I wanna know is where and when did Twisty and Gas Man get billions of dollars and why was I not let in on this one?

Sorry for your loss...you will be alright for a month or two...and then the symptoms of the addiction will start to appear. You find yourself drawn to the Mag rack at Kroger and will start fondling the cycle mags...Then you will find yourself going out of your way running errands to pass by the cycle shop...you will be able to fight most of the urges off without help, especiallyas the season ends. Then the addiction will lie dormant during the winter months. Then in the spring, the addiction will burst forth like the dumbass-odil cagers on their Sunday drives and you will be struck down...and by June next year, you will be so overcome...you will be signing your name on the line and will be back out on two...

Here's to you back out soon...

Ace,

You ride with them and didn't know. Shiot, they are good at hiding it from you. I've known for a while now, since like the beginnin' of June.

No, they are two homes that I worked on when I was in NY. They are on the Eastend of Long Island in the Hamptons. They just recently went up for sale. It's around where Mariah Carey, Billy Joel, Madonna and J.Lo have their homes.

I'm surprised certain members (wont name names) LOL have not jumped in to brag about their mansions on the coast. LOL

You said you had to sell the bike to support your family (or at least thats the generalization I got) right? If that's the case, then yes, you probably made the right decision. Family first in my book. You did an honorable thing. And in the end, your going to appreciate your new bike even more. Best of luck Hopefully you are going to be buying a new bike sooner than you project!

I don't want to name names either, people tend to get grumpy when you do that.

But, Hypothetically speaking, if we were to play TWF pictionary, would this be a good reference to use for the person you are referring to, Ace?
