*raises glass* Here's to past loves and new horizons! To wives and
girlfriends... may they never meet! A toast to the Orange Beast and to
Dave, that he may soon find a suitable replacement...

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.
