Statistics show that many people who sell their Bullets, end up buying another one in the future.
Seller's remorse.

While it may be somewhat troublesome to live with a Bullet's issues, it is often found to be worse to live without its pleasures.
I predict you will buy another one at some point in the future.

Br. Buck, been there, done that... sold a 2000 Classic and bought a 2004 Sixty-5 (Perla)... she's not EVER going on sale!!!  Good luck... stay in touch... and, as Br. Poz wrote:

Long live the Bullets and those who ride them!

Keep the shiny side up, the boots on the pegs and best REgards,

Get a UCE, and come on back home.

No friend Buck, these guys don't have a clue.  Forget the UCE and stick with the good ones, either a Classic Bullet or an AVL- otherwise you may end up having nothing to do. ;D

It was a fine machine, and I almost bid on it.  If I had the money available, she would have been mine!!!!  I did take a few of the profile pictures you had on the auction to use as one of my rotating Enfield wallpapers.  :)

Granted it would have been a stretch of a drive from down here in southern Georgia to pick her up, but would have been well worth it.
