It's been a sad state for Lady Night (my nighthawk 750) the past year. I honestly haven't spent much time with her. Then I brought her over to Sam's place and thought I'd get to sprucing her up and then start riding again. But that never happened. I just looked at her every time I went outside and felt bad that I wasn't paying her any attention.
Then my plan was to clean her up and sell her. Hell, I wasn't getting any use out of her, so someone else should. So I finally decided I would post it to Craigslist. First attempt was foiled due to my system crashes. A few days later I was like, I am finally going to do this so I can check it off my GTD project list. Honestly, I just wanted the project closed. The recurring reminder took up valuable head space that I could be using for something else.
So I posted it yesterday and then promptly left the house for an appointment. Several hours later, when I returned to my computer the messages were pouring in. Wow, I really didn't expect to get such a response. I had plans for the night, and so pushed off everyone until tomorrow (today). But one guy wanted to drive up and look at it, even though I wasn't here. I was like, OK. Fine.
I got a late start to the evening and was walking out just as he was arriving. And after conversing and talking about the bike, he bought it, then and there. Just like that.
It was gone in 6 hours. And had been on my project list for more than a year. It just goes to show me, that with a little effort, a project that has been put off for a year, can be completed in a relative instant.
