Just sold my Wing and Stratoliner :cry: because the trucking economy has went in the dumper and have to go to survival mode to weather this downturn.

Really bummed about it, but life could always be worse.
I got my wife of 34 years, my family, my health,and great friends. So I figure I still have everything that is really important to me.

Things get better and I will get another bike, just got to have that freedom of two wheels and the wind in my face.

It's sad to hear, been there too, may be there again shortly if our business does'nt pick up. I agree with previous comments, you have your priorities dead on. Good luck, hopefully you will be on 2 wheels sooner than later.

alphadog

U said it well "wife of 34 years, my family, my health,and great friends". All the rest is window dressing.

Hope things get back to normal soon.

Sorry for your $$$ trouble and the loss of your bikes, things will turn around. Bikes are expendable, sounds like you have your priorities straight.
