Hey gang, I appreciate all of the comments. Wow, why is it that the mention of Harley gets so many reactions?
Anyway, I needed time to think so I mowed the front and back of my house. Then I edged and trimmed the trees and bushes (and yes, it was hot as heck out there). Then I went out for some crab legs for my dinner. Now, I'm pondering on my decision with some Gentlemen's Jack. I do all of this when I really need to think.
Here's what I'm thinking.
Hold off for a few months on getting the SG.
Currently, I owe approx $3K in credit card bills, where I pay $500 a month. I don't even think about this payment, it's automatically deducted and I'm comfortable with this amount. So, I'm thinking that I should pay off the $3K as soon as possible. Then, after this is paid, finance the SG. Here's my logic, If the monthly payments are $240.00, I'll pay $500/00 (which is what I'm paying now in cc
bills). That way, the SG will be paid off in 3 years instead of 7 years.
My entire gripe is the 7 year commitment.
So by the time the 2013's are ready to be released, I'll be in a better position to get a brand spanking new bike.
There's nothing wrong with Roadstars. They're great and dependable bikes; however, for the past few years, I've been trying to turn my Roadie into a SG. It's just not possible, these 2 great bikes are in different classes. I'm now ready to upgrade.
Thanks again everyone and a special thanks to Hardone2get for the great words of wisdom.
