I was conveniently forgetting this.

Back when I got the Pig (in 08), I felt bad about spending the money at the time, and the wife actually pushed me into it. The economy sucked at the time, and as it turned out, I soon discovered that by doing all my business runs on the bike I was saving around $400 a month on gas. The day I figured that out I did the math and the bike had almost paid for itself by then. Over the next couple of years it was paying me to ride it. And my truck sat for a few years with 75,000 miles on the clock so it was still a great truck when I did need it. Basically it saved me buying another truck a few years ago.

With the economy improving, I now drive my truck close to what I used to, so the savings is not there every day, but it sure helps when I can do 2 or 3 hundred miles for work and not use the truck.

I know one thing for sure, I'll never get the money out of it that I've put in it but I'm good with that. I just like riding it.
