I picked the Zuma up from the shop, after they finished putting on a set of CONTINENTAL TIRES! (Dinner with Racers fans read that in Ryan Eversley’s voice ... Non DWR fans, you are missing out!). Unfortunately I only got a brief test ride in before the rain came, but oh man are they better than the rock hard and weirdly worn original tires!
The rain then went away for a while, and after the girls went to bed, I rode my buddy’s Helix out to meet a potential buyer (I’m selling it on his behalf, as he has proven completely useless at selling things). The buyer made a very fair offer, which I accepted ... But he didn’t have the money on him. So we went to the bank, where he withdrew $500 out of the ATM and gave it to me, to hold it to the bike until he can give me the rest of the money tomorrow.
I think I should have a chat with the guy after we complete the sale, because he’s lucky that I’m honest. If I wasn’t, I could just delete my FB profile and keep his $500. There was no receipt, no paperwork, no nothing. We met at a 7-11.
Not long after I got home from that, it poured rain again. I sat on the porch with my wife and we had some drinks and listened to the radio.
It was a pretty dang good day!
