Have you ever regretted selling something?

I just sold my YFZ 450 and now I'm regretting it. . Out of the blue today someone called me and said a friend of mine told them I had a race quad for sale. I said I might. They asked the price and ask if they could look at it after work, I agreed. They came after work and looked at it and said ok they will take it. So they loaded it up and paid me and left. Now I'm regretting selling it ,even though I didn't ride it last year at all . I am getting older and do not race mx anymore . But I will not be able to replace it . I had 17k in it and I cannot spend that much on bullshit anymore. I am just venting ,it's probably for the best. Anyone else sell something and regret it soon after?



Here is a pic of the quad ,it was really sweet!

Funny that you say that stereoguy, as soon as I saw the thread title I thought of my 06 yfz450 se. Regret selling that almost every day.

That sucks more than my story. I didn't ride it last year at all , I have to watch the cardio stuff I do now so it's probably for the best it's gone. I have A fib so burning laps on a track is not the smartest thing anymore. But it reminds me of what I used to be able to do.. On the plus side I can lift weights according to my Dr. So I am getting ripped . That sucks about your yota though ,I feel for you.

I have sold a few guns that I wish I would have kept. All replaceable but one. I will never forget it. I also sold my grandpas John Deere model B. I didn't have anyplace to store it at the time and was leaving for school. I should have found someone to store it. I won't ever be able to track it down as I never got the buyers info from the auction.

I have plenty of stuff that I miss, but none I really regret. I overthink every big(and most small) decision I make, so I rarely have any huge regrets on that stuff. What I mis most is my Scrambler project, but I did make the right choice. I wouldn't be as financally comfortable as I am today and wouldn't have been able to buy my dream house a year ago. Sitting on my comfy couch in front of the wood stove in my log house is definitely nicer than working on my $45k over-built Jeep in my parents' garage

You didn't ride the quad anymore, so use the money for some responsible stuff, but use some of it for fun stuff too....stuff you'll actually use.

I had bought a bagger and did not even take the Sporty out of the garage for a year. My neighbor had the YJ, we were both asking the same price so a swap was concocted over beers.

Only good thing that came out of it was meeting some of the people here.

I regret selling my 87 Grand Wagoneer in 2004. It only had about 90,000 miles on it and was still running strong but the little electrical gremlins were starting to frustrate me.

Sold my lifted 91 f350. Regret it because the tool I sold it to treated it like crap and now its being parted and scrapped.

There is nice red YJ on M52 about 5 miles south of I-94... I haven't stopped to look at the frame, but looks really good from the road. I think it was $4900.
