2004.0426.1124::Two-wheeled weekend
[ ]
R. and khubli picked up some pocket bikes last Thursday, and we spent Saturday afternoon riding around the parking lot at R's place. They almost have me convinced that I should buy one, but I figure I should probably start playing with my other, twelve-year-old, two-year-owned, more-expensive toy which I haven't really touched for over a year before I outlay any cash on something which R. himself predicts will only last a month (before we utterly destroy them).

Yesterday, R. installed the battery and air filter that I picked up for the Bandit and cranked it up. We took a short, stall-filled ride over to Buddy's to put some air in the tires. It was a bit nerve-wracking... Up until yesterday, I'd only ever taken rides in parking lots. The bike is considerably more forgiving than T's Seca, which had a twitchy clutch that I couldn't really get used to after learning on khubli's Sportster.

I figure instead of outlaying the money for the tempting pocket bike, I'll spend that on the motorcycle safety course that I should have taken when I was unemployed. I think it used to be about fifty dollars, but khubli tells me it now costs about the price of the pocket bike... *grumble*


Seen on a t-shirt a few weeks ago: I'm like a superhero with no powers and motivation.

And a meme from katemonkey and musesfool:
Invent a memory of me and post it in the comments. It can be anything you want, so long as it's something that's never happened. Then, of course, post this to your journal and see what people would like to remember of you, only the universe failed to cooperate in making it happen so they had to make it up instead.

[User Picture]We went to Monte Carlo so you could play baccarat, at which I was exceptionally unlucky, and those crazy Russian mobsters chased us because they thought we were American spies, but we escaped on that stolen Vespa you named Buffy because it was pink and sleek and stronger than it looked.

Good times, man.

[User Picture]I hate those damn Russian mobsters. They hounded me all the way to Miami! :)
