IIRC, you were supposedta be buying an old Trophy fer that......
Yeeeeeeeeah.... that was the idea, buuuut... when I took the Trophy in to my dealership to be checked out, there were a couple of things that weren't exactly wrong
with the bike, but dodgy enough that the service manager/ex-boyfriend didn't feel comfortable with my buying it.
I tabled the idea, and kind of forgot about a 2nd bike for a while. Then, I was hanging out at the dealership one day - in the service area, aka 'the safe zone' since there isn't anything there to buy! - and they played dirty pool by uncrating a beautiful blue Sprint. It was love at first sight.
Sooooooo, for Valentine's Day this year, I gave myself the Sprint AND a new-to-me 99 SV650 track-only bike. I've had the Sprint for 1.5 weeks now, have just over 900 miles on it already, and absolutely love it.
