I still have the Suzuki and its still for sale

Last night I got a phone call from a hopeful young man who, because of my mention of getting another scooter, offered to trade his 2005 Yamaha Zuma, 50cc scooter for the Suzuki. He suggested that I might have better luck selling his Zuma after a trade since it was newer. I suggested that if that was the case, he should sell the Zuma himself and bring me cash.

The youngster was pretty clueless about lots of things, including where Ogden is in relation to Salt Lake City. Seems he's lived in SLC for 2 years but never traveled to Ogden. And he wanted to know if the Suzuki would be a good "learner bike" and a good "cruiser" for around town riding. I assured him it would not be suitable for either circumstance. The poor fellow claimed to have been shopping for a $2000 motorcycle for 6 months, both on KSL's classifieds and the Craigslist listings. You know, if you can't find a motorcycle for that price in those two places, you just aren't the smartest knife in the drawer.

When the floods retreat, I'm going to park the bike on the base's Lemon Lot with a For Sale sigh stuck to it. Maybe a little more visibility will find it a pleased new owner.
