    Default I actually sold a bike today!

    Lol...I put my GSX1000F up for sale Sunday and yesterday a guy came and bought it...he picked it up today.
    Bitter sweet...loved this bike but with the new one on order I knew I wouldn't fell comfortable riding this one knowing I had to sell it...knowing my luck I'd drop it...lol
    I bought the bike with 15,000kms on it last November for $8500...couldn't ride it because of my injuries until February but managed to put another 15,000kms on it...I spent about $4000 in upgrades...listed it for $10,600 and sold it for $10,500...not bad..I'm happy to ride it for a cost of $2000....the guy was really nice ...my age and first bike in many years.
    Now I really can't wait for my new bike!!!

    I do have a soft spot in my heart for the Vespa. If they weren't so darn expensive I'd have one. They really hold their resale value.
    Congrats on the quick sale. It looks like it went to a good home👍

    I have notified a couple of Victoria renovation companies to drop by Trev's and give him an estimate.... As the " only " reason he would ever sell a bike is if six of his burliest friends couldn't cram it into his garage .....

    I'm still trying to get my head around this concept of selling motorcycles.
