What do you regret?

Just finished an article about items that have been sold, traded etc. throughout the authors life. It got me to thinking about things I have let "get away." First I think of my sisters Honda z50 mini bike my dad gave to a neighbor kid that I thought I was in line for but it was replaced with a 82 Honda 3 wheeler. Another thing I remember was some comic books I traded a kid and he got the way better deal. Also remember me and a friend destroying my "hot wheels" with a hammer and thinking that it was fun? My biggest is selling my 86 big red cause I "really didn't need it" and I had a new 91 300 and could only ride "one at a time." So what are some of y'alls regrets?

There is a lot of things in the past I wish I never sold, but the reality of it is that they made way for newer/better things. At the end of the day I'm not a millionaire with unlimited storage so I can't keep everything. But, I'll try dammit lol

I regret selling my 1987 TRX350, and my 2010 Outlander 800R. That's about the only ATV related things off the top of my head.

...something I learned later in life = what ever it is , cars , trucks , boats , bikes and especially women = " the grass always looks greener on the other side the fence , till you hop the fence and find you fell face first in a cow turd and have a nasty taste in your mouth , getting back over the fence is usually painful and/or costly , and you never really get back to where you were "

1950 Willys Jeepster. Only made from 48-50, and my grandfather and I went in together and bought a 50 with 6 cylinder and OD. They only made about 20K Jeepsters, and only about 2K (IIRC) came with 6 cylinders.

Sold it because it wasn't "practical".

I could go get another one, but prices on them have gone up a LOT since then.

1970 Chevelle, 1972 Firebird Formula 350, 1983 XR 200, 1975 CR 250, 2) 2008 TRX 420's....I sold these because my kids grew up and thought they would just sit there so I sold them. Bought a new 2014 TRX 420 9 months later. It cost about the same price I got for the 2 that I sold. I really liked the smaller 420's. I think they handled better and they were just more fun somehow.
