For the last month or so I’ve been thinking about getting a motorcycle. My car’s been broke for a while and I think it’s time to put it out to pasture anyway. It’s interresting how things line up. I asked a friend to teach me to ride on Friday, learned to ride on Saturday, asked another friend to help me go shopping on Sunday, went shopping today, and now I own the sweetest ride of anyone I know. It also cost almost all of my liquid assets, but not quite. It was one of those things where the perfect opportunity came for a day and I took it. That particular bike would probably not be there tomorrow.
So what is this sweet ride, you ask? It’s an ’05 Honda Shadow 750 with 150 miles on it. I got it for about $700 less than a new same model ’07 would cost. In new bike terms, that’s a deal. It has some really nice accesories that came with it for free too. I even like the color. Dark blue with silver flames. Oh yeah, baby.
