Hey Nitin, Sorry to hear that you had to part with the beautiful SV.Sometimes one does need to take practical decisions (for a while). Will look forward to a thread on the new bike soon.

Sure, I felt like I was parting with a part of my soul.Decided to take a few pics before the beauty left my garage.

Thanks,Sammy.Indeed, practicality does take a spot in all our lives, and the indulgence has to end sometimes.None-the-less,things will go full circle and we'll get the chance to indulge again.

I had this hunch when I saw the thread pop up in the motorbikes section. There's more to life beyond anything automobile, let alone a luxury motorcycle.

I know that feeling man, those three weeks without a bike between the Thunderace and the 954 were anxious, frustrating, sad, etc.

That is super news Nitin, Congratulations mate. Out of the little experience of being around kids (my niece and nephews), your little angel is going to keep you very occupied and entertained for you to miss anything in the world post a few days.
Keep us posted on the plans for the next acquisition though.

Hey Nitin,

Why dont you continue your love for bikes, one weekend at a time by renting? There should be several bike rental shops in Houston. I know for sure you can rent any Harley. Since you already have a MC license, it should be no problem for you. And the cost is reasonable too.

So when Srini visits, you can have a shiny new ride with you as well

Good point,gthang.Will look into it.Been considering riding a Nightrod for a long time, this might just be the chance!

aargee,the 'sulking away' phase is over. You guys have pepped me up alright, and now I've left the sentiments behind!

Looking forward to the wind in my face now! Heeeeehaaawww!!!

Nitin,
Have you seen the Dodge Charger ad?
I have convinced people around me - that parting with riding will cause me severe stress, mental anguish, leading to tumors in the brain immediately.
Constantly talk about people who die of nasty diseases without doing the things they love to do. Talk about dying every day in a car for the fear of dying one day on a bike (which only happens to drunk kids, BTW). So, when I act crazy nuts at home, my kids & wife go "why is he being very angry, maybe he should go riding for a couple days". When that happens you know for sure, that no force can part you and your ride.

I hear you, its not easy, talking to new moms. Get your kids and their friends to rally for you, take them on short rides around the block. Collect brownie points, ask your wife to go out to the movies with other girls,etc,etc. Now that you had to sell the bike, organize a funeral service at home, print pics of your bike, hang a garland, be dejected, shed a tear or two, I think I have a million more.

Post processing: I now hope my wife will never see this post.

hahaha...good one Prasad.Point noted!

I took the decision due to lack of time to spend with the yellow 'beauty', since right now the lil munchkin's taking all my time. No worries, I'll give it a while and once the lil one has more company to be with, I'll hit the roads.
