Also, Michael, don't be a prick. It may be just a machine to you, but to me it's the hours of work I did to get the money. It's the years of building my credit to buy it. It's the thousands of miles I've ridden it. When it was stolen, it wasn't just some piece of metal, it was a huge part of my life. Now, either get your jaded ass out of here or contribute something. People like you are the reason I had stopped posting here, just pricks to be pricks.
My heart bleeds for sad souls who need to use foul language to express themselves......
And for those whose life revolves around on the credit that they can amass to purchase material goods, which show off their self perceived worthiness. I'm not sure how much happiness it all brings with all the worry about losing stuff.
I may not have much, but what I do own was all paid for in cash. I had to work hard for that, probably harder than your typical plutocrat. I have neither a credit rating nor a credit card. My income may not be high (even by the standards of where I am living for now), but I am fairly content with my humble lot. If something does go missing it's just c'est la vie
I have enjoyed the small motorcycles I have owned over the years. They have been well used for both commuting and traveling far and wide, but in the end they have only ever been machines. I have shared some recent experiences on this forum.
I have been on this forum since not long after it started, and have contributed plenty one way and another. If you and any other whingers don't like what I have to say, please put me on ignore.
