    Since I can derive very little enjoyment from my rides in my current - and probably permanent - state of health, I am forced to put them up for sale.

    I'd take $10k for the Scout and $17k for the Vintage.

    Kills me inside to have to do this, but my insides are already trying to kill me, so I guess that's fair, right?

    I can ride, but between the multiple daily bouts of intense nausea coupled with uncontrollable, explosive diarrhea, riding isn't all that much fun anymore. This has been an ongoing thing for ... creeping up on 3 years now. It's exhausting as well as completely disheartening.

    My sincere condolences, both for your health and having to give up motorcycling.

    Sooner or later, age gets us all.

    Maybe a Slingshot?

    Really sorry to hear that Zipper.... nobody deserves to have to go through something like that but maybe there will be a breakthrough in medicine that helps you at some point....... We can always hope for that and maybe it will happen.

    Well that just sucks.

    If you want to post a brief description of each, I’ll mention them whenever the opportunity presents itself.

    Thanks guys. I tend to keep things of this nature to myself, but ya caught me in a weak moment.

    Alan just informed me that the Scout will NOT be sold! I guess he still wants it.

    That leaves a '16 Vintage with nothing much added other than a rider backrest and passenger backrest. Only been mildly rear-ended once. Appx. 3800 miles on the odo. I'll post pics of it later. i can't seem to locate them today. It's been one of those days.

    OMGosh Zip! I really dislike hearing this. I pray you continue to hang out with us here and share whatever you want too. I am pretty sure we here have pretty broad shoulders and will be happy to listen to you blow off steam any time. I certainly am and feel free to PM me if you don't want to vent in public but still need to.

    Thanks @Warlock That means a lot to me. I'm coping with the help of certain "herbal" remedies. Surprisingly effective, really. I may take you up on the rant thing at some point, but I've moved past the rant stage more or less. Now and then it still feels good, though. ;)

    Ditto on this.
    That’s a tough decision to make.

    I sure hate to hear about your health issues getting worse Zip. Theirs a few folks on this forum that I'd love to meet and you're one of them.
    Wish you nothing but the best and many many prayers to you Brother!
    I'm willing to bet however that you're not one to give up.

    This saddens me. I know where you are coming from though. As of yet, I can't bring myself to sell any of my Motorcycles and I can't even get to the garage to look at them. :(
    I am sending warm and positive thoughts your way. :cool:

    Thanks you guys!

    @IROQUOIS Give up? If I were the type to give up I'd have been gone decades ago. I only have one setting: Keep on pluggin along.

    @sidecarsam Warm and positive thoughts and energy right back at ya, brother!

    You guys are my "extended family" so to speak, and I appreciate every one of ya. If things get better I'm going to have to make a few long trips and find you guys and go ride. I can only hope I can reach that level. I'll be working toward that anyway. The alternative bites.

    On @Alpal's advice, I'm going to put any bike selling on hold for now and see how things go over the winter. I've already seen some promising indicators as to what's coming out the back end. Less fluid and more solid. I'm sure everyone wants to hear about this, right? I'll shut up now. ;)

    Don't ever shut up on us @Zipperhead Frankenberry ...I won't speak for everyone but I certainly am willing to listen.
