Well, I am finally home from New England. For a few weeks at least. My wife lost her father to that dreaded Cancer last month. We were able to spend the last few months with him. Now we are tasked to liquidating and selling the family home. This sucks folks. I won't be doing this to my children.
I am downsizing. Sold the 450 to my brother. I have 2 more 250s, one up and running and a parts bike. Selling anything that I haven't used in the past year. Lol you would be surprised how much junk we keep. I AM.
Will have to return, brrrr up there. Probably through the holidays at least.
Well, just thought that I would check in. Hope all are doing fine.

Mitch

Sorry to hear about your wife's father. Losing parents isn't easy; you always wish that you had done more for and with them.

Sorry to hear of your family's loss. Unfortunately most of us will get a chance to do this unhappy task once or twice in their lives. Its never fun, and I would dread to think of my kids having to sort out my place. We do collect a lot of junk over a lifetime, and I'm at a point where I should be downsizing too.
