I recently sold my Harley. It was extremely tough for me to do but as everyone always says, guys have to sell their toys when they have a baby! Well, I suppose I didn’t have to sell it, but it really made all the practical sense in the world. I bought it new in 2008 and in three seasons, I had only racked up 3000 miles on the motorcycle. You see, over the summer, Jill and I would plan out our weekends and ask ourselves what we wanted to do in the event of nice weather. Rarely, we picked riding the motorcycle. Instead, the answer was always the same. “Let’s go up to the Whites and get a hike in!”
My 2008 Harley Davidson Softail - Now Sold!
My love for hiking always trumped my love riding. So, it was time to let someone else cruise around on that Softail. I did, however, decide to take a bit of the profits from the bike to buy myself a pair of Kahtoola MICROspikes. They arrived the other day and I’m looking forward to trying them out soon. It seems as though general consensus believes these are a better product when compared to YakTrax or STABILicers.
Without a doubt, I will miss my Harley and I know I will be thinking about it often, while on the trail!
