the zook fairy brought me a late gift!!
the hubby and i have a dedicated trackbike. it's a 2003 GSX-R 750. my street bike (2002 Triumph daytona) started to sort of lose it's "special something" after a few trackdays.
(i don't like to ride bikes i don't own... it sort of draws your attention to the things you might not like about YOUR bike!)
well.. on another forum i mentioned i had a longing to find a "sweet seven-fiddy"... and someone posted a craigslist link. about 100 miles from my house... there was a 1999 seven-fiddy (the first year they were fuel injected). it was priced WELL below kbb TRADE-IN value!
i bought said "sweet seven fiddy" for $2600. it came with a matching helmet, some gloves and a joe rocket jacket.
nothing underscores the fact that i had the wrong bike... QUITE like sitting on the RIGHT one.
i rode it around the 'hood tonight. it was bitter cold and my visor was foggy... but i giggled nervously the whole time...
i am gleeful.
may you all find the right BIKE!!! it doesn't have to be brand-spanky-new... it just has to be right.
happy new year! check out my christmas lights... and see what the zook fairy left at my house!!!
