Seperation Anxiety?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by tanyathecheeky, Jun 1, 2006.

  1. I sold my zx6, the guy is collecting it this morning and I'm feeling really miserable..



    do you guys/gals feel this way when you sell your bike?

  3. I certainly felt that way when I was separated from my bike when it was still travelling at 140kph.

  7. Oh, and to answer the question, I have never loved a bike enough to be sad about selling it. Done, done and onto the next one! New bike fever is a great feeling.

  8. Yeah, I'm getting ready to start thinking about selling my bike and getting a larger one to throw the missus on the back of, but everytime I think about it I wonder if I'll be able to bring myself to do it :LOL::LOL:

    I feel for ya!!

  9. I felt a pang or 2 when I sold my Across, worsened by finding out that the new owner had dropped it within 24 hours of purchase. :cry:

    But the pain continues to be eased by the grin factor of my new bike!

  11. I am selling my current ride but this is the fourth bike I have had, so seperation anxiety is not an option. :LOL:

    Unless I was to be bikeless, then I would be seriously depressed!

  14. No Loz not me :)

    I already have another bike, the z1000, I actually liked the 6 more, but i'd lose too much if i sold the zed

    It's gone, :( I told him if he hurt the bike I'd kill him :)

  16. i felt sad when i sold my zzr250, was my first bike and i loved her, but she went to a good home, and being able to jump on my new bike eased the anxiety a bit, i thought of it in terms of moving on to bigger and better things, and havent looked back since....

  17. I have felt like I've betrayed every bike I've ever sold, (except the Kawa 500, which tried to kill me). I understand your pain, Tanya :cry:

  20. Hey Stookie, When did this happen? Wish you a fast and healthy recovery mate :grin: :grin:

    As for SA, I have it every time I sell a bike, not many have been sold by me [mostly written off] but the period from the sale to the New one is the worst and you always compare your old bike to the new one until you accept the new one unconditionally and it becomes the "BEST I HAVE" :roll:
