Regret it everyday. The sound of the 955 triple at full clip is amazing, nothing else like it.

To me a bike is a bike. I sold it for a reason. There are more bikes out there for be had..whether it's a past love or a new love. You sold it for a reason.

1984 CR 500. My buddy restored it and it was on display at Stubs Cycle north a while back. I sold for 200 bucks. I don't really regret selling it as I'm glad he restored it. My dumbass just had no clue how rare they were and how much i could have sold it for lol

Ooooooh that Daytona

I'm already regretting selling my 300 to a degree. Not because it was an exceptional bike but because my girlfriend finally started showing interest in riding and wants me to teach her. Would've been perfect for her...

I don't really regret selling my '99 Triumph Daytona 955i, but there are times I wish I had it back. I even thought about buying a new one, so I looked them up and they don't make it anymore in the liter bike. :(

Yep, I have to agree and that's one of the reasons I want mine back. The D&D exhaust I had on mine, made that special note at red line. The only thing better is my Ducati 996 at redline, but not by much.

In 2012 I actually got hate mail from the DMV in Florida. Apparently I had bought/sold enough bikes that I showed up on their radar and they threatened to require me to get a dealer license.

Between my wife and I, I'm on my 15th bike in the garage right now since 2005. Usually keep a bike 1-2 years, but I've done a couple of flip projects too. Once I bought a bike on craigslist just because it was a deal I couldn't pass up (garage queen yellow 2000 Monster 900ie with every Rizoma part in the book for $3000). A friend saw it and was wishing he had caught the deal, so I just sold it to him instead. I think I only put 200mi on it in like 3 weeks I owned it.
