New blog

In Rolling Stone fashion “Please allow me to introduce myself…..please to meet you I hope you guessed my name…” Welcome to my Blog, where the motto is; Live, Laugh and enjoy the Ride.

After a ten-year absence from motorsports I decided that it was time to hop back on the saddle, and thus the search for a new steed begun. I started out on a 2007 883 Sportster and only rode it for about three months, after finally deciding that I needed to reevaluate my riding style and purpose for getting a motorbike. I’ve always wanted to try Sport touring and found myself lusting after BMW’s, fortunately I never found one the fit my frame or wallet. Furthermore, the insanely powerful engines were an additional deterrent in trying to secure one.

It was hard not to get swept up by the bigger displacement (1200cc etc.) is better tsunami sweeping the U.S rider mentality, but with gas prices hovering close to the clouds, it was enough of a jolt to reevaluate my motorbike purchase. Plus I think it’s really absurd to make bike payments that would be equivalent to car payments. At last I ran across a review for the CBR250R, and that was it. It is far more reliable, affordable, modern, and immensely more fun than my old bike, it was an easy decision.

I'm starting this blog as a way to record and share my adventures on my bike, that should be arriving soon. I will be posting pictures after I take delivery of my bike and begin this cool adventure.

Enjoy the Ride.
