Some of you may remember that I decided to sell my Ducati a few weeks ago to put the money into an aircraft restoration project. Well I advertised it originally for $8k then realized it was too cheap and upped it to $8,995. I had the usual wankers call, then a couple of real offers of $8,500 which I decided not to accept. Finally today I had a bloke call back and say he would up his original offer to the asking price, so I said yes. He was due to call round at 6:30pm with the cash, so I decided to go for one last ride. It has been raining over here today, real heavy, but there was a window of nice blue sky in the middle of the afternoon, so I went for an 'enthusiastic' blat in the hills for about an hour. Half way back home, going hard through a long smooth series of fast sweepers with everything 'in the slot', I had to admit why I had been so stubborn on the price, I didn't really want to sell it at all. Sooooo, After one groveling phone call apologizing profusely to the guy whose offer I had verbally accepted, the aircraft project is shelved, and the Ducati is now a definite keeper.......bloody Italians.
