Motorcycles

Friday night I joined in the festivities concerning Andrea growing a year older. I had a great time watching her consume alcohol at a ridiculous rate and everyone seemed to enjoy it as well. I may or may not consumed too much, but that wasn't the point. It was her day after all and she seemed happy all could attend.

The rest of the weekend I mostly shopped. Yes a shopping weekend. My motorcycle safety course is next week so the purchase of boots and gloves were in order. I went to look around at bikes and noticed the inventory has depleted to a great degree. Seems with the gas prices people are more inclined to purchase something that can actually get over 40 miles a gallon.

I went and looked at Harleys, but after much thought I doubt they would be what I'm looking for in a first bike so I made my way down to another shop to take a look. I've finally narrowed it down to two. The weekend following my test, assuming I pass and get my endorsement, I'll be looking at getting one of the following bikes.
This is the Suzuki Boulevard C50. A nice looking bike for sure, but the engine is a bit bigger than what I was originally looking for.

This is the 08 Honda Shadow 750. This is probably what I'm going to get.

I'm actually kind of nervous about this purchase. I want it to be something that I can ride well since I'll be doing it often. I'm sure I'll wreck it at some point, casue the old saying goes it's not a matter of 'if' you're going to wreck, but a matter of 'when'.

After much more shopping I finally did the same old thing I always do every Sunday. Went to the gym, laundry, dishes, etc. I sit here again, alone on a Sunday night, watching a thunderstorm, and wondering if she even gives me a thought. Probably not me thinks. That's for the best.

At least for her.

Yes, thanks for coming. I'm just glad you didn't get to revisit the alcohol like I did in the Keg bathroom. The hangover was particularly bad as I had tons of things to do all day Sat! Thank science for prescription headache meds!
That Shadow is very sexy! I hope I get a ride eventually? I got the tattoos, the foul mouth and hell, I may even wear chaps if requested. ;)

Are you going to grow a ponytail, and sport the chaps even when your not driving the bike? tehehe

Too bad you didn't pick the bike Grace and I liked.

I like the Honda and I also like the HST quote. So true...so true.

Sunday nights have always seemed melancholy/lonely to me.

Those are two good-looking bikes. Whichever one you get, I'm sure it'll be great... and hopefully you won't ever wreck it *crossing my fingers*
