Hello Honda...

It's been rainier this week than it has been all year. So it only makes sense that this is the week Nate and I would decide to go motorcycle shopping, buy one, and then stare at it because we can't actually ride it around anywhere.

Nate grew up riding dirtbikes and motorcycles, reading motorcycle magazines and memorizing specs. Back in the early nineties, one of the more popular bikes in the pages of the magazines was the Honda CBR 600 F2. So when he saw one for sale for a steal on Craigslist, he told me we had to jump on it.

After sharing one automobile for the last year, we were both excited by the possibility of both being independently mobile and the price couldn't be beat so we drove across town in the rain to meet the seller. The bike was in great shape for it's age and ran extremely well. Other than a few scratches and quirks it was perfect for us so we transferred the title and bought a tag that afternoon. Nate and I went for a short spin on it during a break in the rain yesterday. It's pretty sweet! Now maybe he can surprise me with things like flowers and candy when he comes home since I won't be in the car with him to ruin it. ;)

    Congrats! I saw Nate's twitter post yesterday and I was tempted to remind him to add "helmets. check." to the list. I know it's not the law in FL, but it should be!

    I met Andy because of my vespa. It's really time for us to renew our insurance and get her out on the road. I miss riding.

    Nate looks tall on that bike. To which Nate would reply, "Tall meaning good looking?"
