I think I have the "wanna sell my bike blues." Lately things have been going wrong in my life and I don't know how to deal with them. I am not able to ride anymore and even if I have time, I don't seem to want to go. I am just in a state of depression I believe and need to get out of it. Bills are getting behind, the wife argues more than ever, the kids are out of control, and I lost my job. I need help, any suggestions.

Depression is a powerful force.

Sometimes you just have to ride it out (literally or figuratively). Other times it takes talk, meds, or luck.

There is one big rule when dealing with depression or traumatic incidents and that is to avoid making major decisions, purchases, or sales while you're working through things.

if selling your bike is going to get you out of financial difficulty then do it. it's not worth the extra stress.
you can always buy another bike when things get better for you.

i think we have all been there once or twice, going crazy because of the wife’s nagging, but always hang on to the things and hobbies you love most. If you loved riding don’t drop it just because times get hard, if you sell it when things do turn around get better, it is going to suck since now you don’t have your bike that brought you so much pride and joy! Do what most of us do, ride your problems away! :moped:

I would not sell it. It might be hard to get another one. Keep it stored for a while. If you see you have not touch it by next year, than perhaps sell it.

Not working is hard and can take away some of your self worth. I would try and pick up any work while still looking for work in whatever specialty/field you are in.

As well. working will help the financial situation that can also help the relationship. I remember the times we were a bit hard off, we would fight more often since my gf was always nervous about having enough money for this and that. We always did and I always was able to find some work (contract jobs) to make ends meat, but she had a hard time with the insecurity of it all.

All the more reason to ride. Do a short weekend trip solo, clear your mind, come back with a fresh perspective.

Sounds like a lack of sex to me. Have more sex and the other stuff will fall into place.

IMO staying SINGLE has made me a much happier person!...I can hang with all my ladies when I need to,but ride when i want and riding is what makes all the stress go away!....I think we put too much of our time into work,our jobs and our relationships....you need time for yourself bud!..

get out and ride with some buds,out on some awesome hilly windey roads,look at the fall foliage and you will see things in a much better light...

I couldnt be happier then I have been since my new DX came along!

hang in there!...

Depression can be a serious thing, don't take it lightly. Only you and your family know how bad it is, so if you even think it might be, see a counselor or physician about it. I almost waited until it was too late, don't do that.

PM me if you need anything.

Good luck!

Hang in there - life is a series of ups and downs - you are not alone, we all have been where you are, believe me, everyone on this forum can tell you they have been down and then back up. You are just going through a bad patch in your life right now. I can tell you from experience, that you can fight through it, be strong - there are jobs our there. I used to be a recruiter - if you want to send me your resume I will take a look at it and call you.... Rick

Wow, I was in the same boat not too long ago (like a month) I did put the bike on the market, but no takers...which I am glad, because I have rolled through it a bit, feel better and I am working on getting a personal unsecured loan to pay off some other bills/ make things a little easier. I know for a fact if I couldn't ride I would get even more bummed. There are few things that really make me super happy - one - good sex (so far I am not getting much of that these days ) two- my sweet daughter ( whos smiling face lights my world!) three- riding my bike (its just so friggin awesome on so many levels!!)

So, since I don't get the sex, I just hang with my daughter more- she's funny too- and I ride every chance I get. The depression will lift- sorrry the wife is being such a beitch. I work with alot of guys and I am amazed at the stories they tell of their beitchy women. I think if more women had to earn the money and see how hard guys work, they would shut the F up. Its sad.

Hang in there and One step at a time...don't make any rash decisions.

Well it is a tough thing when you have a wife the nag's all of the time even without the other problems, I would suggest marriage counseling and lots of prayer for the rest of the problems.

Come to vegas, we can address the sex problem. As for Xtreme1 you may want to seek professional help.

If money is a serious problem, sell the $15,000 Harley, and buy a good used bike for cheap. But keep riding. Don't let The Sadness get the better of you.
