when i got home from school today, I found THIS in the garage!

Recommended Posts

theres a severe winter storm warning here so when i got home my dad told me to come into the garage with him and help him get this generator running in case we loose power tonight. When I walked in, I found that he had picked my bike up early :ride:

came with the title, manual, and extra piston kit (new) and also, the PO threw on new tires on both ends as a "good luck in the future" present. cant wait to get this snow out of here so I can RIDE!!

haha. always prepared! but to answer your question, I went and looked at this bike a couple of weeks ago and told them that it was the one I wanted (i buy all of my own bikes.) so i put a $500 deposit on it to hold it until march 7 (the date when the sell of my 250f will be complete) but to my surprise, my parents went and picked it up early.

well fella's the good news had to end somewhere. The guy that i was helping get into the sport by letting him break the cost of my kx250f over three payments called while ago. and he said he cant make any more payments on the bike. so now i gotta sell this kx250f so i can pay my parents back for helping me out. but atleast i got $833 for free haha

Very nice surprise !:ride: Sounds like you have a great Dad. Good luck with the new bike.

Reminds me of a surprise I pulled on my kids a few years ago on Christmas morning. My son was around 7 and my daughter was 5. I ended up getting a KTM 50 for my son and a Baja 50 quad for my daughter. I hid them in the garage. When X mas morning came along the kids were in the living room opening their presents. I had my wife hand my son and daughter each a specific box. The box for my son had a KTM jersey in it and the box for my daughter had a green jersey in it. Right away my son says "Why did you get me a KTM jersey when I have a Honda ? And then my daughter says "Why did you get me a riding Jersey when I don't have a bike to ride" ? I looked at my wife and said why didn't you get a honda jersey ? She just laughed and said she doesnt know a honda from a KTM. I said to my daughter "You can learn how to ride and then use your jersey.I said to them lets go down to the garage and see if the jerseys match your bike at all. When they opened the door there was the KTM and the quad for my daughter. The look on their faces was to die for. They've been hooked ever since. The old tale about fatherhood is true. "A big part of fatherhood is reliving your youth with a few bucks in your pocket to be able to buy your kids all the things you wanted as a kid but did not get "...lol:smirk::lol::bonk:

exactly. i knew as soon as I got it that something bad would happen with the sale. unfortunately, it happened about 2 hours after I got my new bike :ride: but oh well, live and learn.

P.S. anyone want a kx250f? :lol:

I'm in Charleston, raining, you guys didn't get any snow, did you? If there's a lesson to be learned here, don't spend money you don't have yet.

MAX!!!

awesome. and it snowed here. but didnt stick. funny thing is, less than 20 miles down the road, there's 4 inches on the ground. and true true, but my parents did have the $$ thanks to tax returns. they said they just need it back whenever. no regrets. it will all work out :ride:

At least you got your bike before he backed out, this way you dont have to back out on the 125. Just sell your bike for 833 dollars less if you need to pay your parents back :ride:
