I guess I'd better. It won't get much easier for me unfortunately - I'm sure many of you can attest to that.swooshdave said:Practice now, it'll only get worse when you get married.
"Gee, honey, I have no idea how many bikes I have..."
I don't understand my moms logic. She says that once I'm a bit older shell buy me a bike to learn on. Well, why don't I just buy the damn thing now for $350 myself and save her the money in the future because I don't think a bike like this will be found at such a good price again. (at least not easily). Meanwhile, as the argument goes back and forth, she can only come up with the argument that she doesn't even want me to ride, even though she picked up the "motorcycle learners handbook" for me, bought me many parts for the norton as presents for Christmas/Birthdays and in general doesn't show an overwhelming opposition to the Norton, other than the money we put into it. Not to mention the fact that she thinks that learning on a small less powerfull bike doesn't make sense, but learning on the freshly restored Norton 750 Combat is a better idea - still trying to figure that one out...
And on the sidelines, my dad who is trying to agree with my mom for his own sake, even though I can tell he sees how much more sense my argument makes - he just can't say it.
Well that enough for my rant. I hope I can buy this though, I think it's a pretty good one for me, and if I don't want to keep it once I've got a good grasp on riding, I can put some time into it and turn it around for a profit... I hope.
