Not so happy intro

Hello,

Saw vmaxgirl's (coworker) bike in her truck and decided to aske her how TWS (Texas World Speedway) TD was last Saturday (missed due to work). Needless to say she was pretty bummed about Coachdave (RIP). So I thought I would do some searching and found the threads here.

I wish his family and friends the best in this difficult time.

As for myself I took my MSF course in November of 2007 and went right out a purchased my first bike a stupifyingly powerful (not) 1985 Honda Rebel 250. I put 7K on that bike. Blew the motor (didn't like 70mph in rush hour traffic) and threw in another one that also died. kept the bike (who knows?), but Ike gave it a bath. Maybe I will make it an electric for Island putting.

Went and bought a brand new Honda Shadow 600. Put 11k on it till Ike gave it a bath as well. Then insurance and honda financial paid it off.

Used some items insurance money to get my current Honda Shadow Spirit 750. It had 11k on it and now has 23k (6 months).

I am the crazy dude who rides 105 miles round trip every weekday up I-45 to work in houston (thank for the HOV). ATGATT and a reflective vest.

I really need a sportbike to play with, but did I mention Ike?

I live on the Island because my Babe is getting her PHD from UTMB and I don't want her playing in traffic if I can avoid it (she hates driving).

Peace and rubber side down.

Wasup Justine. Saw you in some galleries here.
Yah Schlumberger don't get me started. If it was made correctly I wouldn't scrap it. Yes, I know the design sucks, etc., etc......
