+1, I had to sell my bike 3 years ago due to having a baby and moving, I kept checking in on the forum and it kept that hunger for another bike alive. Now I have a newer better one and life is good. Hang in there and don't be a stranger.

Exactly!

When I got out of the military I got a job as a ticket broker, I made 20 an hour and was able to go to pretty much any game or concert in the houston area. it was an awesome job. and my boss wanted to keep me there cause I was a good worker.

All he did is tell me that my college education was not going to make more than he was paying me. that I was going to fail. I finally put in my two weeks and that was two years ago and I have not worked a day since.. I have made more money not working than I did working.

Either way, do not ever let someone tell you that college needs to be stopped. Just keep positive and it will all come together if you work hard for it.

Unfortunetly, school can not wait. I have to to have another level of certification by the end of next year, or I will lose my curent one. My state cert expires, and I dont have the CE hours to re-cert. Not to mention that another symester of school will give me a pay raise.

Yes, my bike is on the right. That was at the track in or near Hitchcock. we rode down there via crabbriver road for some parade laps. Had a freakin blast.

btw, 500's are a blast, no way u looked silly on that thing !!!!

Well, deed is done, bike sold. $1750 for an 01 ninja 500 with 21k miles and a serious need for new tires. Good deal, since I only paid $1100 for it.
