Some of you heard the news already, that I sold my motorcycle. It’s never an easy thing to do, but this time it was the right thing to do.
Yes, it sat around the garage too much, but that’s not really why I sold it.
I sold it because it was too fast.
It went over 60mph in 1st gear.
Around 90mph in 2nd gear.
About 120 mph in 3rd gear.
And it still had a 4th gear, a 5th gear, and a 6th gear.
Like I said, too fast. So I sold it.
I also sold it because whenever I got on it, I tried to ride it like the guy in this video.
So, as I tweeted (because that’s what EL Capitan does, he tweets) Goodbye my friend.
May I live longer without you.
Everyone always wanted to know the fastest I ever went on it. And the truth is, I don’t know.
I remember glancing down during one ride and seeing something in the range of 130mph.
Once you’re in the 120+ range, it really doesn’t matter how fast you’re going. If you fall off (or hit something) you die.
And so, I sold it.
Not because I didn’t enjoy it, but because I must be getting older, and somehow a little smarter?
