Ok I made ya laugh, now I needs some help from the community... ideas?

Ok so the situation is...... no job.... I was a relay operator, and if you know what that is, then you probably know why I dont have a job any more. I got tired of either helping 12 year olds prank people and say penis 40 times in a row, or helping people from africa defraud americans.... anyway thats besides the point.



So... no job, rent coming due in 6 days, bike payment coming due 15 days after that, plus utilities etc etc.


Now I got my ole FZR sitting in my garage, runs nice, mostly stock, 13k miles on it, and I gotta sell it fast. Any ideas? Ive had it in cycle trader but not many bites, so now im getting down to the wire. Its pretty much the only asset I own that I can dump off to cover my bills.


I was thinking ebay, theres a few bikes up there that seem to be getting bid on pretty well, and I think if i priced my girl around 2k that would make it sell, but yeah if anyone else has any ideas I would vastly appreciate it.

Not only do I have to sell it to get the rent bills etc covered, my R6 needs a new set of tires, well it will in a few miles.... like a couple K miles, so thats another few hundred bucks.


So yeah, im kinda backed into a corner here..... harder to sell this bloody thing up in wisconsin than I thought it would when I bought the R6.

The R6 is another asset. I doubt that you'd wanna sell that, thouhgh. Maybe you could take out a small loan to cover your bills for the month, find a job within another month, and pay it all back the following month.

Naw the R6 isnt too much of an asset for a couple reasons....

1: its not paid off all the way yet.

2: It's my baby and aside from the Fizzer, the only means of transportation I have at the moment.





As for the bank loan, they already said nuts to me for that. No loan bail out for me, its gotta get sold or I am 100 percent boned.
My credit rating sucks more than Paris Hilton at an NFL party, its like 576 or something like that. Truly pathetic. Everyone else I know is getting house mortgages, and the best I could probably do right now is finance a small shed in their backyards.

Alright, then perhaps you could scratch together the minimum payment for the bike (borrow from a relative/friend?), and nicely ask for a short extension on the apartment bills? There's gotta be some kinda backup plan.

Maybe you could return the flag to the harley dude, and ask if he wants to buy your bike (seeing how he now knows that speed isn't all that useless). I'd say post up the ad on absolutely everything you can think of. Local news paper, ebay, cycletrader, tell all your friends to tell all their friends that you're selling. Kinda the way spammers flood thousands of people with spam email... they know that one or two will bite the hook. So if you have it up everywhere, someone is bound to be interested. Hell, I'd buy it from you, but I'm a bit short on change myself.

I hate to say it bud... but you may want to reconsider your choices all together. Sell both bikes pay off your bills get your credit on track and get back into the sport again.

Yeah I'm just gonna flood the market and pray.



I really dont think its time to sell both bikes yet though, for one thing, I owe enough on the R6 still thats its just not cost effective to sell it, and its my transportation, and frankly, I'd rather be homeless and have the bike. Know the gun quote?

Well they can have my last bike when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.


If it absolutely comes down to it yeah I can borrow money from some relatives, but I really hate to do that, I dont like people bailing me out for my own messes.

Try your hardest to sell the FZR - if it doesn't go (and I hate to say this) then sell it to a dealer.

Get another job quick - Bartend, bounce, landscaping, etc. I made hellie money tending bar when I did - especially with all the bars on state street you might be able to find something quick.

Good luck - let us know what happens.
