I never thought I’d want to

Because of the high gas prices, and because of my new job being a bit farther away than I have to commute now, I’m actually hoping to get a motorcycle. I was always a bit affraid to ride one in Seattle, and even more nervous about riding one in L.A., but I feel a little more comfortable with the whole thing now.  I go to the DMV on Friday to take my written, and then I’m signed up for riding classes at the end of August. If I pass the written then I get a permit to ride during the day so I can practice. Because I get a permit, I’m trying to get a motorcycle soon so I can take full advantage of the permit. Hayden says he wants to ride with me when I get it – that’s even motivation to pass all my tests! I think Loki is hoping I get a sidecar too. I really think he’d ride with me 😉

One thing I wasn’t prepared for was how much more the interest rate is for a motorcycle than it is for a car – almost double in some instances. Sheesh!!
