....now in jeopardy. After 3 months of unemployment and not being able to keep up with the payments on the Wing, the repo man has paid me a visit. It's been a fun three years on the Wing and now I need to get a job and scrape enough together to get a used ride. Maybe a used Honda Pacific Coast? or another Shadow!

Sorry about the Wing. I remember when I was out of work for a year. It was the most frustrating time in my life, but good things happened to me, and I'm sure they will to you also. Don't give up. Its only February and the rally isn't 'til October. Heck, someone down your way just hit the Powerball for 140 million dollars.

Thanks Paulie for the offer, but I think Jack has room on his Wing for me if I want to ride b!tch with him. But maybe my wife will take Jack's back seat and I might need to ride with you after all! LOL We still have a cage so we can meet you all at the rally.

I could go for another Shadow, but my wife is already spoiled by the Wing's back seat. I showed her a picture of a Pacific Coast and that perked her up a little. They're selling for around $3,500 on eBay. Oops, I forgot, I gots to get a job first! 30 some resumes & applications out with three interviews so far, no offers, unless I want to sell cars for commision only.

Man, Bruce, hate too hear this. I hope that things work out for you really quickly. We can't "eat like cowboys" unless the whole posse is together. The thought of you ridin' b*tch with Paulie is classic, I almost want to see that in a sick kind of way. :shock:

Well two things have happened since I started this thread. One is I started work selling boats and RV's (my knid of toy store!) and two, a fellow motorcylist in our community motorcycle club (Sun City Roadrunners) has let me have one of his project bikes to have as my own and pay him when I get back on my feet! It's a 82 Kawasaki Z 440 LTD....

Now what I have to do is sell the hell out of a bunch of boats n RVs this summer so I can afford to take some time off in October. One day at a time! The bike is in 100 peices right now as I have broken it down to clean up. Carbs have been torn apart and boiled out, new plugs, front end had been torn down and cleaned up and am in the process of putting it back together. Oh and I joined two more forums...kawasakimotorcycle.org and www.armbell.com - The Kawasaki Twin Owners Forum. Under my regular handle of Dr Bobs Patient! They've been of great help over there on this KZ440 project. Should get 60+mpg for commuting 40 miles a day to new job. That will help on our scheduling when my wife and I have been sharing one vehicle. Now I'm rambling...

Peace
Bruce
