A good friend of mine, who lives about 300 miles away, called me the other day. He is thinking about doing a triathlon and couldn't decide which bike to get. He had narrowed it down to a $179 Schwinn or a GMC Denali. When I said that neither one of those were a good choice, he made it clear he didn't want to pay $500 for a bike. I told him I had a bike he could borrow if he wanted to drive up here and get it. He insisted he wanted to pay for it. so we began negotiating on my 1989 Centurion. I started at $100 and he was at $400 I finally told him I would give it to him if he would put 1000 miles on it in the next year. I explained that he could never pay me enough cash for the amount of work I had put into that bike and the only way to compensate me for it was to ride the hell out of it.
He came to town today to pick it up. I zeroed out the odometer, showed him how to change a flat and demanded he also buy a helmet and tire changing tools. He left still exclaiming how beautiful and light the bike is. Hopefully, I won't be getting it back anytime soon.
Now I have an empty space in my garage What to do? What to do?
