"Hi, it's me. Any bites on my bike and sidecar?"
"Great! What did -"
"We sold it."
"So if you want to come in and we'll settle up -"
"When did that happen?"
"Oh, a couple of weeks back. So when you want to come in we'll settle up."
I have no idea when they were planning on telling me, but at least this rather horrible experience is ended. Now I can afford to get my Goose on the road!
