I really never thought I would do it. But out of the blue a guy called me Tuesday night and said he wanted to buy it sight unseen. He said "a friend of a friend of a friend said I'd better jump on it".I wanted it to be purfect so I spent the last two days completely servicing everything so that he could enjoy it on day one as I have for the past 3 years. He arrived about an hour ago...Walked around it a couple of times, Fired it up went to the end of the block, loaded her up and handed me the cash. I'm gonna miss ol' blue.... She was the first "brand New" Bike I ever owned.

Atleast I still have my 99 YZ400F and my 02 YZ426F to put around on.....

The stable already looks bare....On the lighter side the guy is a SETRA member so I will probably run across Ol Blue at the races....

No matter how good the other bikes are, you always miss the bikes you sell :D Just hope you don't have to pass the bike at the races, could hurt concentration. Or worse yet, have it pass you :)

I had a XR600. I cried when that thing got trailored off. Not because I was sad, but out of pure joy. :D

Hey Bonzai look at this way: Yesterday you received more money for "ole Blue" than you would receive a month from now, 3 mo's from now, 6mo's from now....they just keep losing value. That fact always negated the emotional viewpoint. So, is the rumor correct about you going Orange?????? :)

I'm wrestling with the same issue with my Vmax right now. I don't have time to ride 1 street bike, let alone this one and my sport bike. I'm going to get rid of it and buy something more for the family.

Hope I don't miss it too much. :)
