Vroom, vroom, VROOM!!

June 22, 2004

I know, I know... I haven't update this site in forever. Well, I'm sure most of you have heard that Celly and I finally bought a house in WV and have moved in together. Pictures of the house (pre-moving) are here and pictures of our yard (post-moving) are here. As you can imagine we've been kinda busy since moving.

The other reason I haven't been online or updating this site is because...


In April, Celly and I went to a local motorcycle dealer with the high hopes of riding home on a bike that day. Alas, it was not to be. Even after a week of constant phone calls and such, they hadn't gotten the financing done. Plus, they didn't even have a 2004 Honda Shadow Spirit in the freakin' place! There was a lot of confusion and miscommunication coming out of there. But they seemed to be confident they could get us financing where another dealership had turned us down. So we gave them a shot.

I think they got pretty sick of me calling over there every day cause they actually got the bike in and set up on a Wednesday. I was all set to pick it up on Thursday. However, they lied to me. They had told me they would take care of the insurance, so I didn't worry about it. Thursday morning though, the sales guy tells me that they can't set up insurance and I have to have that before they can sell the bike. Sooooo... I take off Friday morning and go into a local WV office to get me some insurance. I'm out of there by 10:30.

Friday was killer. I could barely contain myself but in the end it was all worth it. The bike is a beautiful kind of metallic blue that from different angles looks purple. It's all shiny and chrome. :-) I'm still kind of stunned that it's mine finally. For over two years I've been trying to get it.

It's rides really nice but I've been off bikes for so long, it's going to take me some time to get comfortable enough with her again. I put over 200 miles on it the first day and things are coming back to me. We just have to learn each other's quirks.

What's that? You want to see pictures?? Oh, how silly of me to have forgotten. Y'know sometimes I just start rambling on and on about... oh. Sorry.

There will be more pics later. I still haven't set up the home office so it's a pain to do anything web-related. Plus with unpacking still and now motorcycle... I'm not online as much as I used to be. Fear not though, I still love all 6 of my Faithful Readers. You know who you are... ;)
