So... what's everyone doing this weekend?

darkwolfie and I are going over to Bay 4 Motorsports to pick up his new bike.

Then we're going up to National Powersports Distributors so I can show my beloved my new bike. I just put a deposit on it today, and pending it passing the mechanical inspection, it will be mine.

I wasn't going to upgrade this soon, but not only will my 250 not keep up with darkwolfie's 650, I don't think it's the right bike to take to Nova Scotia this fall. It's really all about the right tool for the job.

Aw, who am I kidding? I had engine envy and SMAS*, big time, and I love this bike. I can't wait till I can take it home -- we just finished tidying up the garage so we can fit them in. Now I just have to sell the GZ250, because they didn't offer me what I want on the trade-in, but I can probably get it on a private sale.

Anyone want an '02 GZ250 with <1500 miles?

There is part of me that has always wanted a motorcycle. I so can't afford it right now. And you're just a little bit of a trek from here. But damn, I wish I could buy it from you!!

How much do you want for it?

It looks like it would make a great commuter bike and probably gets better mileage than my Gloria, my Dodge Grand Caravan :D
