Cliff put our Honda on Kansas City Craigslist, July 6. He told me to price it at $9,000. At first I protested, until I realized he had it priced so high that nobody would buy it anyhow. We've had it almost two years, and we only paid $8,500. We've put 10,000 miles on the thing. So I figured it wasn't going anywhere.
We never received a single call on our Craigslist ad... until yesterday. After five weeks, finally somebody inquired about the Gold Wing for sale. He asked Cliff, "What's the least money you'll take?"
Cliff told him $8,000.
The man and his wife came looking today, and will be back tomorrow or Tuesday with the cash.
Now there is a "rest of the story".
Cliff is mulling things over. He does have that nagging worry that we could be maimed riding a motorcycle, either or both of us.
However, his cousin in Versailles has a white Gold Wing Special Edition that's two years newer than ours. For not much more than $8,000.
So he can still change his mind if he decides he simply has to have a motorcycle.
Me, I'm keeping my mouth shut about the subject, because he doesn't need any pressure from me.
Mostly, I'll just miss the picnics and trips away from home.
But I still have Blue.
