I sold my "american dream"

my bike... I called it american dream because it was like in a dream. Only in America one can go from never being on a bike to legally riding your own bike in 4 days! Well i dont know maybe one can do it in Canada too? I just know in Europe there's too much red tape...and it would be literally impossible in Russia...

Sunday: I never before sat on a motorcycle
monday: first day of MSF
tuesday: second day of MSF
wednesday: I got my M endorsement
thursday: I purchased my shadow and rode it by myself from baytown to my home on I10 during rush hour.

Anyways now it is all gone... but the cash is burning my pocket so i am gonna get a naked bike soon!!!

get a 600 hundred instead, they are perfect for curve carving and commuting[unparallel fuel economy...relatively]. Also, the insurance shouldn't be too expensive for it.

i'd talk to tuan or sean wong (where pete used to be). I went w pete in sept. 07, got my address wrong (dont know how), added unneccessary coverage that wasnt agreed on, then I couldnt get ahold of him for a few wks when I found out that he hadnt sent over proof of ins. to my leinholder (bike and truck) causing over 10k additional balance on my loans (collateral ins). Was about to drop and go elsewhere, and Sean Wong called me and got everything taken care of.
