Thumbs up Please ,re-grease me; change my oil!

Forgive me Laurd for I have sinned..... not about last nite's debauchery.

But this is about my Sprint.It's been sold as of today. I got my asking price, which was fair. The new owner has had cruisers in the past and wants to try sport touring. For that purpose its a great choice and price.

This isn't goodbye; no you'll probably be stuck with me for a while yet. My intention is to buy a S3. I have 2 choices locally. The dealer has a 2009 with 24K and a private sale on a 2006 with 40K. Both are or-ange. I love the orange.

It's kind of bitter sweet The old ST was a fine looking bike and got a lot of compliments. If I could afford to own 2 bikes I would've kept it.

In lieu of luggage I'll get new fitments for my Ventura bags and use that along with a tail bag, I don't really like tank bags.

This forum has been a wealth of good information for the DIY er. I've also come to enjoy a lot of the regular commenters here. It almost made me want to do some travelling to meet mano a mano.This forum has been very well managed IMO.

Don't cry for me ...Argentina.

Bikes come and go, but you're a better man due to your sprint experience. Ride on!

The new owner picked up my Sprint yesterday and road off. I admit it was still a fine looking bike. I also picked up a 2006 Speed Triple. I hope to have it parked in the Sprint's place by next weekend. I'll post a couple pics

I would like to hear how you like the speed in comparison to the sprint.
