I remember telling myself a ways back that I would never sell my first bike. Well I guess I lie to myself. For some reason it has been an incredibly hard thing to do. I have just listed it on ebay ($60 now!!! After this I'm through with ebay) and am wondering if I am going to regret it. Don't get me wrong the bike is in awesome shape, its such an easy bike to ride, but I'm wondering if I'm not wanting to sell it because of the history I have with it, or whether I just don't want to part with a material possession. I haven't ridden it in well over a year seeing how I was out of the continental US, and for some reason didn't get it re-registerd and insured this summer (what was I thinking?) So it just sits there in the garage, new parts galore, without being ridden. Thats what finally made me up and decide to sell it.
I want to continue living in places other than the northeast while I'm still young, the money coming in from the sale will help to send me on my way to the next place, and that cross country ride I want to one day take seems a bit far off. Anyhow I guess this is just my weeping for that plastic, metal, and rubber that I have a fond memory of. Check it out yourself and see if its worth all this emotion (ok I'm playing up the emotion bit now).
