Hey Bob, be nice to me, it's been a bad few weeks. Ducati totalled by a little old lady who backed into it, condo roof leaking, 3 key people at work leaving, wife's unemployment runs out this week and no prospects for a new job, and since the ins co doesn't want to pay what the Ducati's really worth I'm stuck haggling with them for the three nicest weeks of riding time we've had so far this year.Wah! Ok, I'm done Scott
Truly sorry to hear about your heap of current troubles. A sure fire way to clear the mind and find some lightness of being --- fire up the Bullet, find some empty road with a long view, and ride.... ..... ..... ..... ......
Yea,i don't know, I'm always leary about demo anything. Definitely depends on how goods the deal is. Enfields are pretty affordable to begin with. But than again if you could get a G off it? You'll have some extra bucks for that seat, and some more Goodies. And hang in there Kid. Did you ever see that Monty Python movie, what was it, LIFE of BRIAN, Remember that song they were sing'in while they were hanging on the cross??? Come on now anybody?
Dang - I can actually HEAR it .W A A A Y too much time on your hands........

Some things in life are bad, Other things just make you swear and curse. They can really make you mad, When you're chewing on life's gristle Don't grumble, give a whistle. And this'll help things turn out for the best. And.... Always look on the bright side of life, (whistle) Always look on the bright side of life, (whistle) There's something you've forgotten, If life seems jolly rotten, And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing. When you're feeling in the dumps, Don't be silly chumps. Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing. And... Always look on the bright side of life. (whistle) Come on... Always look on the bright side of life... For life is quite absurd, And death's the final word, Give the audience a grin, You must always face the curtain with a bow. Forget about your sin, Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow. So always look on the bright side of death, Just before you draw your terminal breath, When you look at it, Life's a piece of shit, You'll see it's all a show, Keep 'em laughing as you go. Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true. Just remember that the last laugh is on you. And always look on the bright side of life, Always look on the right side of life, Worse things happen at sea, you know. Come on guys, cheer up. Always look on the bright side of life. Always look on the bright side of life. I mean - what have you got to lose' You know, you come from nothing, you're going back to nothing. What have you lost' Nothing! (fade...)
That bloody tune is now stuck in my head like the proverbial ess aitch one tee to a blanket. I'm gonna get you for this Scooter Bob....... do-do, do-do-do-do-do-do. Bugger!!
Wow, this thread certainly wandered around the mulberry bush!Back on the original thought, I sometimes look specifically for things that are re-manufactured or demo's. Most manufactured items are not tested, they use Statistical Process Control to predict the error stays below an acceptable level. But a Remanufactured or a Demo unit had the hands of a skilled technician on them. Often these are the very best Technicians as with them time is truly money and they are held accountable as an individual for errors.
