Boredom is a state of mind. Don't throw out a really good bike while under the voodoo spell of boredom. There is no law in Virginia that I know about that keeps a rider from having TWO (or more) motorcycles. Try to find yourself a good poker ride for a good charity or just plain fun. Take a trip to somewhere you have been meaning to ride. Take along a camera so you can refresh your mind with the sites you saw. You might look up a few local, small motorcycle events in your area. Most motorcyclists do not bite, nor do they have rabies. Hell, a lot of them are just plain friendly and like to ride too. It is always nice to meet some new folks who share your enjoyment of the ride. I would put a little less stock in continuing to buy new things as a means to relieve boredom and spend more time finding out what you really enjoy doing, and then do it. Some of the best solo rides I have had were where I had just an inkling where I wanted to go, no specific time table and took time to smell the roses, sights and sounds and meeting new people, resting when I felt like it and riding with the wind wherever it carried me. My sense is you have a pretty good, powerful and comfortable motorcycle and to throw it out might result in a little regret. The Thunderbird for me is a keeper, and I do not find many of these motorycles that I want to keep long term.

+1 These are the true words......trust me on this one. If your GF lacks the interest in you to ride along then you are at a fork in the road of your life and need to go one way or the other.

A. Quit riding or learn to ride alone and not be bored. She will ultimately insist you quit. ( you already know this)

B. Kick her to the curb and find a GF who likes you enough to go along.
