Remember this post about looking into motorcycles again? Ah, yes, the audacity of hope.
My econ-stimulus package was ear-marked, my initial research and shopping well underway, and my wife was no longer furious at the prospect. So what happened?
Hey, you gotta love the plaid…
Note the red tape serving as rear tail light cover…
Yes, the boss has been wanting a new deeper couch — one that could comfortably allow two adults to lie down and watch movies — for quite some time. And one became available for a reasonable price.
Then the truck went in for repairs. It’s a good truck, a trusty vehicle, now 10 years old with 130K miles. I knew there were problems, just like I knew I’d need to spend some money to keep in running; especially if I want to reach the goal of someday embarrassing my children by picking them up from practice in battle-worn ancient truck (Uncle Buck-style). And, yes, the repairs cost twice what I’d budgeted for.
Sigh. It was still cheaper than payments for a new vehicle. But, for now, with this combination and projected fall expenditures (football), the motorcycle will have to wait.
