Cool Sad days

Well, bike was stolen from me last week on Thursday when I was at work on my duty day (was there over night). Was taken from the Newport News shipyard.

Kind of stuck between whether or not I am pissed because I was selling the bike anyway after taking it to the track. I just don't think I am going to get as much money for it that I had into it. I had a guy at work here going to buy it for $8500, but he wasn't going to have the money until he got his bonus on Oct. 2nd.

I was selling because after taking it to the track and seeing what the bike could do, just couldn't use it as a commuter anymore. The bike is waaaayyyyyy to awesome to just ride it 75 mph to and from work, and I want to focus more on racing the 6R next year to put it on the track more than a couple of times.

I dropped my times into the same times as the guys who ran in the top 10 from the last time I was at the track, so I figured I have a good chance at getting some contingency money this year.

So, won't be around here much to do anything more than lurking here and there, and to get the occasional question answered, as we seem to have a pretty good group of guys here. Of course I couldn't be w/out Hill's crazy antics every now and again.

Later days....

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

Thanks gents, insurance is USAA, have never made a claim in the 10 yrs I have been with them, so hopefully they will be ok.
