The Last 100 Miles – Saying goodbye to an old friend
Today I waved goodbye to an old friend. After 11 years together my ZX6R has finally gone off to dance with another partner. It’s hard to believe that I’d had that particular bike for so long. It was with me before my dog, before getting married, before my daughter. We sure had a lot of fun together. There have been so many good memories over the years.
I rode her for the last 100 miles to meet up with her new owner. I thought I would feel a little more tugging at the heartstrings than I did. Though I have a tendency to become emotionally attached to the idea of things, I felt good letting the bike go to someone else who will enjoy and actually use it. I hope they have many happy times and safe miles together. So long, old friend.
