I'm posting this here in the 50+ Department because I assume most of you here are more mature about life.
I'm currently living with a girlfriend, and we sometimes talk about our kids, family members, our stuff, and about our eventual deaths. Yeah, I know. Most people try to avoid that topic. But since last fall, we've buried my mother, her mother, her older sister, and now, her younger sister has cancer. So, death is all around us these days.
So I was suggesting to Cora that if I should croak before her, I would like her to have my bike. If not her, I would want her to put my bike up for sale on CraigsList for a stout asking price.
My logic is, I love my bike. I've had her for over 16 years now and have kept her modernized and very well maintained. I think that if I just left her to one of my kids, they wouldn't appreciate the true value and would just leave her outside or wherever and let her go to waste. Someone who pays good money for a titanium hardtail mountain bike probably would be more likely to take good care of her and appreciate her much more.
I'm posting this thread here, thinking that maybe some of you out there have similar feelings for a special bike or some other special possession. And I'm wondering what you're thinking about who to leave them to...
