Re: Flippin' eBay (addiction!)

I'm a bit like that as well (see, you're in good company)...

I tend to subscribe to the belief that its better to have it and not need it, rather than need it, and not have it.

Of course, this is fine, until you have a double garage, and a 16' x 10' shed full of all the cr@p (that's the generic name the wife has for my priceless artifacts - I call them priceless, because she'd kill me if she knew how much had been paid)

I recently bought a complete nosecone for my bike, not because I needed it, you see - but it has the headlight & indicators, plus a screen fitted, and its in the correct colour, and the seller included a set of gauges...

And so it continues.

Just one problem - where in the hell am I going to put this?

Why do we do this to ourselves?


P.S. Oliver - search for VS parts on French Ebay - the bits will be newer, and the choice greater & prices keener.

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
