Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Darren asks: I have several motorcycles which I don’t ride much lately in part because of WuFlu lockdowns and also because the fun has gone out of it. I read your article about getting ready and wonder whether it might make sense to just sell them and use the money to do just that. Would like your thoughts on this. Thanks!
My reply: I’ve actually had similar thoughts. I’m uneasy about keeping my bikes because what use will they be in Diaper World? Rather, what use will they be to me, a Diaper Dissenter? I am worried it may soon be impossible to leave my house unless I Diaper and since I will not Diaper I haven’t got much use for the things which I use to leave my house.
Ad even leaving all of that aside, you can’t eat a classic motorcycle. It might make more sense to convert the bike’s worth into something perhaps worth much more – such as food. Or the means of obtaining it.
It is a very tough call – of a piece with deciding whether to sell one’s place and split for greener pastures – if they exist – while there is still time. I have been extremely reluctant to seriously consider doing this.
Which I may regret a few months from now.
Back to the bikes. There is one middle-ground solution that might be worth considering. If you sell a bike ad convert the money into metals… copper and brass, say. And composites (such as an AR, say) then you will have something of equal or even greater value that can be re-sold at some point, if you wanted to get your money back and get another bike… assuming Sickness Psychosis ever passes.
