So this Halloween was a difficult one for me, got the call that my dad had past away. The one thing I can always look back on in our relationship, is riding. Hes been a member of a local motorcycle club since before I can remember. In reality hes the reason I got my own bike.
He has a '96 springer softail, completely custom and redone. Apparently he was in some financial trouble and borrowed some money from a fellow rider and told him to hold on to his bike for collateral, knowing he'd get it back after the winter(he lived in IL).
Now I will do whatever is in my power to get the money for the bike. The man who has it has already made it clear he will not sell it to anyone and just hold on to it until I have the means to get it.
I had planned on selling my bike in the June '13 time frame due to an upcoming deployment. My question is, should I just put it up for sale now and go back to IL and get my dads bike before it gets to cold to ride back? Or do I hold off and go in the spring time? My bike is an '07 so I'm worried of the value decreasing a lot in the next few months.
