Not gonna be tardin' for a while

Well, unfortunate circumstances hit me again this year. I got laid off for the second time this year with no backup companies to go to in my field, so I took a job working full time for my fire department. To say the least, it was a freaking huge paycut. I needed a more fuel efficient vehicle to drive. While the dizzer got great mileage, the MRD exhaust would my neighbors off every morning at 6. My only other choice would be to sell my truck and get a car, but that. Sold my DRZ and found a great low miles SV650 for a thousand less than I sold the DRZ. Was able to register, pay for a years insurance and still had 500 bucks left over to put toward my bills. I will be back on a motard as soon as I can afford it. Think next time I will get a WR . Not gonna lie, I am really gonna miss riding with you guys.

I supervised well decommissioning. Not really looking to go back offshore, just trying to find some flexible part time stuff to make ends meet.
