I get word Monday from a friend about 65 miles south that the Kaw dealer has an '04 1500 Classic, like 1.7 miles on it, that he'll sell for $6500. So I get up early Tuesday and hightail it down there to check it out. IT'S SOLD ALREADY!!!! AND IT WAS TRUE!!!! waaaaaaahhhhhhhhahahaha!!!! Beautiful bike, too: dark green and eggshell beige, windshield, hardbags. Been mopin' around all day, feeling like someone has kicked me in the groin, if ya know what I mean. Whoever got there before me is gonna be one happy camper, the lucky bass turd.

Yep that was a good buy for sure. Don't mope around to long it won't do you any good. Just go buy you some chrome or other accessories, an before you know it you'll forget all about it.

Missed a deal like that myself when looking to purchase a Vulcan....and I did exactly What woody suggested and found another one to buy. Not marked down like the first one I saw...but still it stole my heart. ;)

That's too bad nail,
Don't worry another deal will always show up.
My girlfriend would say "it's not meant to be". That you are meant for another ride.
I would likely scream, and rant like a child if I missed on the bike.
And I have never seen a bass turd before, funny 'eh?

Thanks all for your kind words. I'm feeling better about it today. I just hope I never see the guy riding it- I think I won't be waving at him. At least the first time! LOL.

rbentnail,
Now won't you feel better when you're riding the 04' with.07 miles that you got for $6000? I agree with your girlfriend, wasn't meant to be. One better is cryin' for ya, you just haven't heard it yet! :)

Ok, I'm taking woodchucks' idea and going with it, sort of. Good ole Santa brought me a Memphis Shades windscreen, so I'm just snuggle up with the velvet storage bag that he sent along with it. Like my own little comfort teddy bear. Ahhhhhhhhhhh.

Yer killin' me! That is one beautiful 1500! I used to have a wallpaper of that bike - figured if I get rid of the Nad I'd get that one......

Sorry, man.....maybe there's another in your future.
