Well it finally happened. Sold my bike yesterday for a shitty $4000 dollars.probly what she was worth but had more sentamental value. She was a good bike.
Having a baby boy in Novemeber main reason im selling the bike. Not really for $$ but because i cant really control myself on it. I really enjoy doing the wheelies and ridding fast.I still have access to a 03 hayabusa but its just not the same.After 20k of riding the bike some dudes probly going to wreck it :( 1st sportbike for him. I planned on ridding it forever.Damnit why didnt i take pics before i sold it. Well heres memory lane.

I was bikeless for about 6 months. I started going nuts. Then I got my RX 50 and shortly after, my Ninjette. Now all is good and I am back to riding over 1000 miles a month.

Hope your withdrawl isn't too bad.

i know how that feels. earlier this week i sold my firebird that i owned for 4 years that i said i would NEVER sell. LOTS of memories of it, and i didnt have time to take last set of pics b/c the buyers bought it as soon as they saw it.

The bike looks great. Probably worth $4,000. How many miles did you have, anyway? What's up with that smoke? Was that your bike?

Good luck with the son. Props to you for taking responsibility.

What have you been smoking lately? LOL. But seriously, it's kinda nice to hear that you know what your priorities are (or should I say should be). Good luck with being a parent.

I hear ya bro. I have been thinking alot lately about trading in the Blue Demon on possibly....

A Ducati Monster or MV Agusta.

I'm trying real hard to resist. Only problem is my newest riding partner has a sweet ass 998R and the dam thing is calling my name, and I'm trying real hard not to go to it.

But I also must give you props for making a difficult decision. Heh, I'll give you 90 days before you go looking for something cheap to feed the addiction.:D

no the bike i sold had plastic welds and was only primered flat black. Still looked pretty good for spray can job. Had 20,000 miles i had it since 0. smoke is from when i wrecked it turned upside down had to clear her out. pic 5 is the oil i hit in the road that caused me to wreck. SOmeone was pouring oil up on the mountain. 1st and only wreck with 32,000 bike miles. one reason i am selling because even though it might not be your fault shit still happenes. I still ride a hayabusa its my dads but he stopped ridding awhile ago hes into horses. Its scratched up real good so hes not selling. Its actually in my garage LOL. I still plan on posting. You just wont be seeing any new videos LOL.

Good luck Jrock! Had a lil boy myself this past February and I will say although I didn't sell the bike, he definitely changes the way I ride.

You're gonna love being a father! I don't think there is anything better in the world!!!
