Ugh, don't get me going on idiot Craig's List sellers - apparently "is it a running motor" is some kind of trick question that requires all kinds of qualifications and explanations.

Now I start with "when did you last start the bike?", immediately followed by "do you have a key?", which usually is followed by "so how did you start the bike without a key?"

Excellent! That means my '09 SE hasn't lost any value at all either!

(incidentally, I paid $7,200 new late in the model year. Should I advertise it, I think I'll ask for $7,500. Jeez!)

1500 miles in a little over 3 years? That's about 1 1/2 days for the Dog, right?

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

Thanks for the info. I'm still new here and trying to get the personalities sorted.
