    Has to actually be for sale at the time of posting.
    Has to be something you actually would purchase if you had the funds to just buy.
    Could be multiple things from multiple websites, but they all have to be for sale.
    Could also be services like, shipping, like, if you find something cool on the other side of the Earth, you could also throw in a get a quote for some shipping; i.e getting a car from Australia to Europe (for example); find a car shipping to help you get your find to you (if money wasn't an object).


    Randomly this week, I've been looking at Harley Davidson bikes.
    https://www.harley-davidson.com/gb/en/motorcycles/fat-boy.html
    Either this brand new one.

    Or...

    For that more vintage look, if I could, I'd buy one used that I liked.

    I love this bike from Terminator II and it's not for sale but is in some movie prop museum somewhere and it was sold for a lot of money, but it's not for sale, but it's basically the Harley I want if I ever got a Harley Davidson that I really wanted.

    [​IMG]
    It's a 'Fatboy' Harley Davidson Soft Tail.

    [​IMG]
    This is for sale at a place with a lot of Harley's that's actually 2 miles from my house (and I searched national) but I like this bike the most out of all the ones I see.
    https://www.autotrader.co.uk/bike-s...adius=1500&make=HARLEY-DAVIDSON&model=SOFTAIL

    https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classi...sing-location=at_bikes&postcode=cr77rz&page=1
    £6, 999.00

    I'd have that back seat changed and that'll be it, if I bought this bike.

    TBH - I'd basically just try and clone that above movie bike with this bike and that'll be my Harley and I'd ride around on it as my daily runner like my name was Terminator going to the shops on it and everything.

    Q number plate
    Apparently it means it's been modded.
    Claims it's a Volkswagen
    Only VW there lol.

    It would since it's £2, 950 if money wasn't an object.

    I looks, funky.

    Drive this around Thornton Heath a.k.a my Bed Stuy UK and give it a different backdrop to the mobility suburban pictured above, but, Margate for you (it's for sale in Margate) this VW trike (lol, VW motorcycle),
    [​IMG]
    I'd dress up as some biker/military Goth on this thing and ride it to a Goth Night thing in Archway across town/London.

    It's actually a P Reg so it's not new, it's a 1997 trike sporting a Q number plate because it's modded and it's calling it's self a VW but I still would buy it, just to take it to Goth Night even on it and ride around in the 'hood with it, if I had it - probably taking pictures and stuff with it for social media still with different urban backdrops and stuff through out be it Lambeth Southwark Croydon or City of Westminster or even City of London or Camden or wherever, everywhere I'd use this as a prop to take cool pictures with featuring it at night and stuff.

    Sale ... Schnail.Most car experts and car enthusiasts agee.
    Right now,is about the best time EVER in the history of the
    United States to buy a car.Makes no nevermind if New,Old or
    a classic car in concours { highest quality } condition.
    Forget the small stuff like Gold Toe socks on sale.
    Or Buy 2 get the 3rd free.Unless it means buy 2 Corvette and
    get a 3rd corvette free { just pay for the taxes,title and registration.}
    This of course applies to motorcycles.Especially. since gas prices
    are at an historic low.Motorcycles sales are down because it's no
    longer an advantage to travel via yer motorcycle over yer car.
    Antiques on sale.No.That is and will remain a buyers market.
    Meaning a smart buyer of antiques knows how to get the best price,already.
    Plus in a Recession heading into an acknowledged Depression
    Hard cash is King.
    In fact,right now the Word SALE is just Stale.
    The word only has import when the conditions are ripe.
    Like buying Peaches.
    Cars and motorcycles and furniture ain't peaches.
    Even Elton John knew that.
    Rotten peaches rotting in the sun.

    Springfield, OR, USA

    $270, 000.00
    I'd buy this as a holiday home and spend summers in Springfield, Oregon in this place.
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1234-C-St-Springfield-OR-97477/48390202_zpid/
    Why?

    Location, Location, Location;
    The above property is close to places to eat and shop and is as close to Main Street in the old part of town as I could find, so if I vacation here when it's warm I could explore and be by Main Street.

    Probably around 900 sq.ft.Probably no basement.Looks like yer
    typical weekend build from supplies at Lowe's.There's house very similar
    to that a couple blocks down the road from me.The Previous dwelling
    had a major fire.Sat idle for near a year.The place was never taken care of.
    Someone bought the property and worked weekends from scratch.
    Did a nice job.I figured it might take about 6 months minimum to sell.
    The place sold in a few weeks.I shoulda asked the price.I have 12 college
    credit hrs. in Real Estate.I was all set to purchase my dream home when my
    wealthy Mom died.I was effectively cut out from her will.That house was
    $ 585,00 and worth every penny.It also sat on a nice piece of property in
    an exclusive { underground utilities } new development.With Homes in
    the $ 1 million + range.Custom built.My Father had a custom built home
    on 60 acres.Half of it was alfalfa which had to be bushhogged every year.
    It was a Schultz Custom built home.With stone facing and a nice
    spiral staircase and Big basement.I like Craftsman architecture homes.

    Yeah, I could never live in something so small, but...
    For spending up to 3 months of the year at a time there, why not, when it's warm. It has to be big enough to hold whatever I buy on my travels until the day comes and it's back home for me and things I buy as souvenirs and things.
    You do know, I'm in London and if money was no object, I'd still have London, but, as for places in Springfield go, nice location, it's on the market.
    It'll be better than a hotel as it'll be private/mine and it's close to Main Street on a street called C street and it's address is 1234 C Street and, why not as far as vacation homes go.
    Fly into Eugene/EUG with a stopover somewhere from London to enter the US and kick back in the evergreens in USA while having a life in London.

    I figured I'd be able to order gardeners and things like furniture, big screen TVs and even a car for it and pay any taxes and phone bills and WIFI and cable and everything from here; of course visit it and furnish it myself with things I like, but I'd like to maintain this best I can from London so it'll be ready for me. Like finding a care taker or something to drop in and maintain this property for me for me too, IDK.

    I found this 1980's car that'll be cool to buy for $15k just for this vacation home in Oregon.
    This car looks big enough to carry guitars and things I find back to this house.
    The car's in another state in another part of the country, but, if money was not object; I'd buy this car just for me to use on vacation in this Holiday Home.

    I might even like other houses in other parts of the US and world, but as far as Springfield/Oregon goes, why not.

    I might even drive this car down to California and see what nicer houses I can find in Los Angeles, have this car be in some place like Malibu or Bel-Air and have a different car for Oregon.

    Great overall bike.Power,handling,Brakes,balance and
    overall feel.I've read about some to the great 500 cc bikes
    of yore.The first Bike I ever bought was a 500 cc Yamaha.
    Not a bad bike.I kinda wanted a BSA 500 cc Twin.
    But they weren't dependable.Now Nortons were dependable.
    So I eventually sold my Yahama for a Triumph Bonneville.
    Pretty bike but a piece of crap.Hard to start { a kickstart } and
    vibrated too much.Sounded good but the Brakes were weak.
    Good Instruments though { Lucas }.
    I went from that to a bike I seldom rode { a Suzuki Sportbike }
    a 750 cc rocket.
    I own 3 motorcycles.I am still breaking in my New bike I bought
    last spring.A Yahama XSR 900. a Triple.Absolutely awesome.
    Extremely Fast.Has 3 modes.Plus ABS which I don't like.
    Plus a slipper clutch which takes getting used to.
    I am learning how to Rev Match.I think I have I have it down now.
    No need to rev Match on my Big Bike { Honda Rune } which has
    special cut gears for ease of shifting.It shifts like butter.Hydraulic clutch.
    I traded in my Honda CB 1300 { Owned for 5 years } for the XSR Yahama.
    Totally different bikes.The Honda was the best overall bike I ever owned.
    Started up every time johnny-on-the-spot.Best Brakes on an Motorcycle
    I ever owned.Handled good and was fast.Like some Metrics classified as
    a Standard it sounded very quiet.Plus Honda purposedly Detuned.
    To attract a different kind of Motorcycle customer.One looking for
    overall Niceness.A competent but rather tame motorcycle.

    The effect of gendered perspectives on security have on the use of drone strikes in counter insurgency tactics.

    Or why is it that women become radicalized to the point of violence.

    Or why is it the case masks and other coronavirus health policies have become focal points in culture wars?

    I'd study, and write the paper "Corrections to History" refuting post modern revisionism since 1960.
