When we got married he had a old bike that had starter issues. He finally sold it for way more than I thought he would ever get out of it. Then his old truck's transmission went out. We couldn't afford to fix it. Plus it was a two seater and we were now a family of 4. It took some convincing to get him to sell it. I told him the money could go to his new motorcycle. It took him two long years to finally sell it for what he wanted! (In the mean time it was parked on the grass on the side of our house! Ugh!)
By the time he sold them both and added his Christmas and birthday money he had almost $3000! So yesterday he bought a bike for $3200.
About 2 years ago we bought his car for $600 and mine for $2500. So his bike costs more than both combined and is newer!
I couldn't be happier for him though! He hardly ever spends money on himself! I buy myself things here and there all the time. He has a big bike ride planned in June with his friends, now he actually has a bike for it. :)
