Any of you that know Church_Mouse, understands that when he takes an interest in a new topic, he researches as much as he can oftentimes until there's nothing else available to learn. As he found motorcycles for sale, he researched the make and model so he could figure out what type of motorcycle would work well for him. Then one day it happened. He calls me up all excited, sounding like a kid on Christmas day. Church_Mouse found the one. "It's way under priced, the guy only wants what he owes on it so he can get out from under the loan." He had a co-worker friend test drive it for him. As it turns out, we paid cash for the motorcycle, which of course, ended up being a Honda. It's a 1984, so Church_Mouse gets comments like, "Oh, my brother had one of those...about 15 or 20 years ago. He loved it."
Church_Mouse took a motorcycle training course to get his motorcycle license last weekend. It rained all weekend. Nothing like practicing in inclement weather. He has enjoyed "Joy Rides" around neighborhoods and in the mountains and now that he has his motorcycle license, it's time for me to invest in a helmet and join him for a joy ride now and then. Hopefully we'll have another nice day soon so I don't have to wait 'til next year. Freezing my toosh on the back of a motorcycle doesn't sound too appealing to me. Church_Mouse talks about getting me a motorcycle or even a scooter to run errands on. I think he says that just so I can't do much shopping. You can't bring much home on the back of a bike!
