Question for the forum: what is a memorable bike purchase that turned out to be one you regret?

For me, I bought an Infinito after testing every endurance bike model I could. I love it, but after I had it about two or three weeks I saw an Oltre xr4 on the road and realized I wished Iíd considered, tried it, because clearly the grass looks greener over there. Iíve never stopped regretting the oversight.
Based upon your own words you are cheap and you have difficulty making decisions. You could never possibly be completely satisfied with a big purchase.
Thatís not an oversight. Thatís a condition.
