The Orange Beast is gone

Well, I'm afraid I went and sold the Orange Beast. As some of the guys 
at the Ohio ride know, I've been thinking about upgrading. I decided to 
put the bike up for sale when I got home and ask a fairly ridiculous 
price for it. I figured I'd either sell it for my price or  I'd hang on 
to it. Well, today someone has agreed to my price and has already sent 
payment for the bike. The new owner of the Orange Beast will be a 
gentleman named Chris from Frankfurt Kentucky. I will inform him of the 
list when he picks up the bike, which will hopefully be tomorrow.

I intend to hang around the list, even though I will be Geepster-less 
now. I have my sights set on picking up a ZX12r in the very near future. 
I've seen some in the low to mid $5k range, and these bikes intrigue me. 
I'm hoping to be on the back of one for next years Ohio gathering. If 
you see any or know of any ZX12r's for sale within driving range of 
Illinois, give me a shout.

I will probably have a few odds and ends to sell shortly. Over the years 
I have had three 95 GPZs. Though there is always a possibility I will 
end up picking up another one someday, I'm not going to hang on to the 
stuff I've accumulated. I'll put the parts up for sale as I get them sorted.

If anyone is down around Frankfurt, KY, keep you eyes open for a blazing 
orange streak flying past you on the road. That'll be my old girl.
