    I guess I need to decide what bike to get.... I love my crotch rockets, but maybe it's time for a cruiser... Harley has been calling my name for awhile :)

    I think I am going the cruiser route myself, but I am looking at the Boulevard M50 in Black (to match my Tacoma and my Jetta)...

    Thanks. Now if I could only pull $8K out of thin air...

    ($2000 will get my head rebuilt, turbo rebuilt, new TB, new water pump, new intercooler, and a paint job on my Jetta.)

    (The other $6000 is to buy a 08' M50 from a friend of mine that works for a wholesaler. :devil:)

    Lose the weight, keep the bike, and feel better about yourself for completing at least one of your dreams.

    I regretted selling my Jetta TDI for months!!! When I found out that my bestfriend had broken the head on it (didn't install the timing belt properly), I bought it back in a heartbeat. Even though it isn't running, I am so glad that I have it back. Now I am going to restore it to be better than it ever was!!!

    Take the local rider safety class. you won't regret it. It teaches you quite a bit, and you get to meet other local riders. I plan on taking one again as a refresher since I haven't ridden in 3 years (married 3 years - relation?) and to meet people that ride in the area.

    The class I took in Colorado was from a police officer that became my friend. She taught me how to lay a bike over in accident and ride it through a skid. She also taught me how to slide in my bike gear without getting a scratch.

    ...now as long as I don't ever have to use any of that stuff. :cool:

    I like it because it is clean smooth and refined for long distance travel yet easy enough to handle in tight downtown situations. Plus it has EFI and shaft drive - effortless yet fun all at the same time. :D

    Yeah, I know. It's even free for PA residents, and if you pass it you automatically get your Class M. But since I'm nowhere near being able to afford a bike and gear (I'm in college) I don't really see the need for getting it. I'd rather get it when I'm financially able to ride.

    Good point! Of course, I just bought a $600 Suzuki GS500 and rode it around campus. :devil:

    Hell, if PA lets you take the class for free - do it! Better to know and not need to know than need to know and lack the knowledge. ;)

    Yeah I may just take it so I can get my Class M now and take it again or take the advanced class when I'm ready to get a bike!
