Default Re: Why we're going bankrupt...a warning to others.

When I built my first bike I loved the bike and the experience of building it. Anyone who was around back then can tell you how I discussed building them and then putting them out for sale. My wife reminded me of my thirty years in the photo business. With that in mind, I gave up all thoughts of the bike business,

Buyer's remorse is a pain, I had that often but the real problem would have come when someone put the wrong gas in, when the bike blew they would said it was my fault.

The courts love to find the businessman at fault. They wrongly assume that we have enough money to absorb every loss. I don't hae that kind of money.

I am glad that I didn't do it. Especially now with business gone bad and jobs disappearing faster then free donuts at an AA meeting. Not that I have any experience with that.
My posts have entertainment value only. A bike ain't yours till it has your blood on it. Then it owns you.
