Now that I sold the Harley, I need to find a good second car for us. I found a good listing on craigs list. I emailed the guy to set up a meeting to test drive it today, and told sent him my work phone number. He called, and we set up a meeting time. He asked me what my cell phone number was in case he needed to call if he was delayed. I explained my lack of cell phone due to driving a motorcycle.

He then asked me if I was willing to sell my motorcycle or trade it for his car. I explained that my bike would not be an even trade for the car, but he said that was ok we could work out a deal. I told him I would think about it. I got to the meeting place a little early and waited next to my bike for him. When he pulled up he jumped out of the car and said, "A nighthawk 750. That is exactly the bike I am looking for."

We then spent a few minutes ignoring the car I was supposed to be test driving, and talking about the Nighthawk. It was amusing. I did test drive the car, and it handled great. Maybe we can work out a deal.

Of course if I sell the motorcycle I will have no bike for a while, but I do have permission from the Mrs. to get a new one. I have my eye on the DL 650. We'll see how it all works out.
