1st bike (mx bike) took forever. No one in my family rides, so I wasnt allowed to get a "dangerous" bike. It took some convincing (read: bishing and whining) to get one. I finally did when I was 13.

I had been wanting one for a long time, both my parents ride, but it was more of an idea in the back of my head that would flare up again and again. So a year ago last month when I was 19 I said, Dad, we are going to the Kawi dealer I'm going to get a bike...and you're going to cosign for me, so put on your shoes. So I went and got it, and then took MSF (yes, it actually sat in my garage until I had my M endorsement.

5 months later I said, dad...put on your shoes, cause I'm going to go buy an R6 and you may have to cosign again. And thats when I really fell in love with my bike

Think I had a mini bike under the tree when I was 6.

Since then...I get the cash together, search, then buy the one I like, on the spot. No new bikes for me. Ni financing. So I get them immediately.

2 days.

I woke up on a Monday, & said "I want a bike", made a phone call, and had a contact at Stubbs for the next day. I went in on my lunch break and they had the Katana and Gsxr 750 pulled out for me to look at.

I REALLY did NO RESEARCH, but when i looked at em both the Katana was ugly as shyt & had a funny looking on the side, so I said "um nah, gimmie the gsxr thingy". Came to work, got a draft ready, went back after work gave them the check signed the paperwork, & it was mine. Only problem was since i'd NEVER RIDDEN A BIKE BEFORE, I couldn't ride it home, so I had to have a buddy come up to Stubbs and drive it home for me the next day..... typical girl!

We got back to the house they showed me how to get outta first with no gas, and was supposed to come back and show me the rest but, didn't so that sunday i just got up put that bish in 1st and got 2 rolling!
