Old Rusty had been sitting in the shed unused since before its plates expired on March 31. The purchase of New Zoom didn’t help the situation either. On Wednesday we listed it on Craigslist, got a few responses…last night it went for a test ride and then off to a new home.
I’ll admit that it was bittersweet. I won’t miss the sore bum and back but the 6,000 miles alone that I rode last year hold so many nice memories. Prior to Rusty I had been on a motorcycle only once, and that was probably 20 years ago. This was the first bike my girls had ridden, and as a result two of them became hooked. With Rusty we discovered some great roads, found favorite restaurants, and met fantastic friends. There were laughs about the ‘ghetto’ GPS (printed directions and electrical tape), the noise that angered neighbors and set off car alarms. New Zoom is awesome and I’m sure it will create many new more good memories but it was still sad to see an old friend go. The bright side is that at least Rusty will be making some noise and gaining more miles with a new friend.
