March was to be "buy a motorcycle and sell it on eBay" month for me. Due to a variety of slack-inducing factors such as guests, colds, and total lack of motivation, I haven't acheived this particular goal yet. I know I've still got four days left in the month, so maybe I'll find something to buy and list, at least.
Recently there was a pretty 1984 Honda Nighthawk 700 for sale on craigslist for a great price. I took too darn long pondering the purchase and by the time I called, some other savvy bastard bought.
The lesson I learned is: stop over-analyzing, get out there and hustle.
A few days ago, I realized I've spent a solid year (more, actually) researching this business idea, watching craigslist, figuring out how much bikes are worth, how I can make a profit, and so on. I won't claim to be an expert, but I'm as close as I can get without digging in and selling some darn motorcycles.
So I guess what I really need to do now is overcome my fear and loathing of my cell phone and, y'know, call people and look at bikes. Moving, shaking, wheeling and dealing, here I come.
