Want To Ride? (Alternative Version)
Posted Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Allen posted about how great his bike was and all of that. I decided that rather than commenting on what he had to say, I could say the same thing only much different. I have always had a fondness for motorcycles, though I had never really ridden one until I was just turning 21. I did have a 50cc Italian scooter, but it didn't even have a clutch so I don't really count it as a proper motorcycle. (Though I did love it and would like to fix it up one of these days) My problem was that I didn't have the slightest clue about how a motorcycle functioned. I found out from Allen that there was a class, and we had gotten a bit of money for Christmas, so I took the MSF class. MSF was great. If you are thinking about riding, I would highly recommend it.

Posted Thursday, November 8, 2007

If you have been following any of the blogs up to this point you know I'm very particular about what I like. It doesn't mean that I don't like other motorcycles or cars that don't meet particular requirements.

This bike is the most versatile, under rated and all around great bike on the planet. They make everything for them. I'm not joking about that either....

[caption id="attachment_332" align="alignnone" width="500" caption="Miata MX5"][/caption] Shortly after the sale of the second (and sometimes first) love of my life the SV650, I was left with a horrible dilemma. What am I going to do without a second vehicle? My wife was nine months pregnant and was due literally ANY day. ANY day. Many people go through a period of time during moments when there just doesn't seem to be that much mental clarity. Sometimes it is after their kids go away to college, or sometimes it is when they are about to have kids. I did what any man going through one of these times does...I bought a Miata. That at least is what my wife tells me. I would rather say that the Miata is one of the single best handling cars to drive stock and as a result is likely one...
