    LOL!


    edit:

    Maybe the punchline is that I must be outta my mind for $pending an extra $800 to put lock-outs on my truck?

    If it is like my old '99 dodge 2500, I should have done it.
    9 mpg was a "heavy slog" for 40k miles a year.
    Plus the cartridge bearings had problems.

    Why they didn't offer it at the factory to simply change to a Warn manual hub
    is beyond me. They could have increased their CAFE standard mileage with them.
    For the inner city crowd that can't be bothered getting out to put a hub in...
    sell the truck with a "solid hub" that's engaged all the time, instead of making it part of the bearing.

    You break even in two years when it needs bearings again

    You're probably thinking of the Ron Woods Ducati ? Front cylinder sticks out too far in that, can't get enough weight on the front wheel. If you make it longer to get better weight distribution, it won't turn.

    The Virago really should have worked, geometry was fine, Mert Kenny and Dick Mann can figure out a chassis. What they finally came up with was, the engine turns backwards. That was the only reason they could come up with after a year of messing with the thing.

    Still lost to a 1952 pushrod twin (there's one part number on those that dates to 1918 )

    My current ride is a '96 Virago.

    It ain't much, but it's mine. Was my Granddad's bike until he "upgraded" to a Street King, sold it to my Dad... I bought it off Dad. It's ugly, and it's loud... But I like it.

    Happened to me concerning firearms and shooting targets. Got fed up with the noise, expense, cleaning. But still like guns just no more targets.

    I came back here to mention that in my case I have reasons. You should find yours. Go see a person to talk to if all this bugs you. For a couple
    hundred dollars you might find out that you are not messed up any more than anybody else...

    (In case that was mentioned before then there must be something to it.)

    Did you get good at something you didn't like?

    Sounds like you got burned out. I use to play musical instruments. I played so many gigs you could say I was "professional" because I made decent enough money to live on. One day, I got in an argument about price and I just quit. I haven't played an instrument in 10 years. I got sick and tired of being treated like a trained monkey for the amusement of others and I didn't enjoy it.
    I would say take a long vacation and learn something stressful. Like sailing, or go to Thailand and learn Thai cooking. Go to an art colony and learn to paint. Go to France and learn French. Anything as far away from what you do to get a different part of your mind working. But with Kung Flu, I don't know where anyone can travel.
    And there's the fact that things change. After 12 years at the same place it's time to move. We are mobile creatures.

    Nope. If it's worth $800 to you then it's worth it.

    Whew! This thread is causing me mental exhaustion.

    And that is all that ever matters. I don't give a flying fork what others think. As long as I like what I've got nobody else's opinion matters.
