Goodbye to an Old Friend

The plan: take the cash from selling my beloved 883 Sportster and put it down on a new ’08 Dyna Super Glide while the dealers are trying to reduce inventory and make room for the 2009 models.  Well the ’09s are here (as Dave well knows), and the sales month is coming to a close… so what better time to leverage a good deal than now? 

The Problem: after a few weeks in the paper and on Craig’s List, we had several inquiries on my Sporty… but no takers. 

Not wanting to let the perfect opportunity go by, we gave our friend Tony Parmegiani a call.  He is a member of First State HOG and also a “motorcycle planner” (aka bike sales dude) at Mikes Famous HD in Smyrna.  He located the bike I wanted at the New Castle location. Exactly one year to the day from when Jay bought his Dyna we hammered out a deal for my Dyna. We still need to go over some paperwork and it might take a few days before I actually pick up my new “big girl” bike… but it’s a done deal!  (As a bonus, this sale should put Tony in place to win Salesman of the Month for July… congratulations Tony! We hope you win!)

So this evening I bid adieu to my first motorcycle.  I stroked her fondly on the handlebars and fender before walking out the door.  I will miss the little gal.  But alas, it is time for me to move on to bigger and better things…
