Bittersweet 40,000 mile mark...
The 85 Aspy reached the 40,000 mile mark today. I drove slowly along the shoulder to watch the odo flip. I normally forget about those milestones until I'm about 4 miles over them so I'm glad I caught this one!

Anyways, it was a bittersweet milestone because I was on my way to the local Honda dealer to put a deposit down on a replacement motorcycle...a 1999 Honda Valkyrie Standard (black) with only 4800 miles on it. I swore I would go fuel-injected V-twin when I was done playing with the GL1200, but I just couldn't pass this up this opportunity. (Would have preferred the Touring version with the hard bags, but you know what they say about the bird in the hand...)

In all reality, the deal is not done yet...the Valk is not running correctly, so the service team has to get it road ready. My deposit just guarantees that they won't sell it out from under me.

There...I got that off my chest...

someone will get a nice Aspy with only 40,000 miles on

The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.
