Tossing Away History

Now that I am freshly stocked with exceptional riding gear, it's time to clear out the garage. I have five pieces of riding gear that I will never wear again: my original Aerostich Roadcrafter suit (from 1983-84), my Motoport jacket and pants, the infamous deer guts Belstaff rain suit, and a pretty decent prototype jacket from the mid-90's. They are all on Craig's List, if you want a laugh:

With two full sets of Aerostich Darien gear, I don't need any more spares. I do need the garage space, though. I'm fighting my way through a spring garage cleaning and there could be all sorts of weird surprises for me in there. As usual, I'll be following my anti-hoarding rule, "When in doubt, throw it out."

  1. Is it legal to sell items from the Smithsonian Museum like this?

  2. Good question. I guess I'll worry about that if there is really someone out there willing to part with cash to take it off of my hands. If there isn't, I have to worry if it's legal to throw away historic stuff.

  3. Wow that rain suit is something "special" a change from the yellow banana suit I guess.

  4. I'm getting a few hits on eBay on the suit, but no bidders, yet.

  5. And it's all gone. Nice. I didn't get much for any of it, but I did get the space in my garage back.

Disagree? Bring it on. Have more to add? Feel free to set me straight.(Spammers get serious. Spam goes straight to trash and is never read.)
