My last (2) rides. When we hit 65 my wife said she didn't want to ride anymore. Too many idiot cagers masturbating with their "I" phones going down the road. Friends of ours took two massive hits because of that. She figured that we would be in a real mess if both of us went down. So after 41 years of biking I too decided to pack it in. Sold both bikes and replaced them with..............

This was posted on the TW200 forum, and I thought some of you might enjoy it.
I certainly did. :)

2021 Honda CMX500ABS. This will be my second year of riding. The last thing I did was fill the fuel tank to the brim with some 93 Octane treated with Seafoam and Stabil, put the battery tender on it and covered it.

I ordered a new rear shock from partzilla on 2-24-22. Their website said it was in stock and ships in 24hrs. Well it’s been delayed again, supposed to be in stock from their supplier on 3-9-22. From what I have gathered this is how a lot of these sites work. They don’t have it sitting in their inventory but their supplier says it’s in stock so that’s how they list it. Too me, this is false advertisement. That’s the last time I’ll remove a part before having the other one in hand.
I noticed a little slop in my linkage bearing better get those ordered now….

I agree. I ordered parts for my Ws6 Trans am 2001 from Gm Direct....used vin number even. They said in stock. Then i got a email yesterday. Stock was actually zero and the part is on backorder to god knows when.
I hear this happens a lot lately from talking to friends. Partzilla is usualy very good. I think it is thier suppliers that overpromise deliveries. Same with this Gm site.
Good luck...i know i need some.

Typically, I’m very patient but this kind of thing pisses me off. Having worked in sales, If myself or any of my guys promised something we couldn’t follow through on it was a big no no.
good luck on your parts.

I understand, i was plant manager and made sure production met sales forcasts. Since covid everything is nuts though. I retired but i hear how hard it is now to get the materials
To produce for sales at the company i worked for. I honestly dont get it. But you are right they dhould be able to manage thier site information and inventories better.

I had purchased a Yamaha XS1100 special in 79 after I got out of the Coast Guard. Installed Jardine pipe and it sounded sweet. Bike would really get up and go. Kids came along and didn't ride it much, sold it.

Almost have my latest project finished. Its an 89 Yamaha FJ1200. I'm down to about 20 fairly easy hours. Less than 10,000 on the clock, I love finding stuff like this. I need to STOP looking!

In the fall of 2020 I sold my 2006 kawasaki vulcan 1500 classic and my wife sold her 1999 honda 600 vlx shadow. We then found a really nice 2006 Miata with 37k on it and have enjoyed that so much more! Don't miss the bikes and I have had one since 76. Had a near miss with someone on a cellphone backing out in front of me riding the bike and it scared me.
