In July I cleaned out my money market to buy my '40 Indian motorcycle. My friends thought I had gone nuts. In August, I started to think so, too. It was a bad month. I no longer have a regular paycheck. If no checks come in, I have no money. In August, no checks came in. I got a little worried about paying the bills.
Now things are on an even keel. And the way the banking and investment industry is going, taking the money out of my money market to buy a bike might be the smartest move I made in years.
