I am just turning 44 ,had bikes since 16.They have always been my main transport,roads too busy 2 wheels are best.
I was doing 60 miles round trip to work,so brought a new honda blackbird,04 plate at that time.What a cracking bike,do mega distance and 2 up in comfort.
I was working 6 days a week up at 3am not home till 6pm,other half got feed up and said i must find a local job.So when a local job came along which i could push bike too,i sold my blackbird to get my dream bike a aprillia rsv1000r.I did all the mods to make it even better,then on 10th dec 2008 was laid off.
Been very hard to get a local job and the other halfs clutch went in her car so i sold my bike for some cash and to buy my alfa sportswaggon 156,my 1st alfa.One week latter i get a job,bummer just sold my dream bike.
The alfa is a nice car to drive,but i miss my bikes,but with young kids i am always thinking when is my time up.Dont ever say you have a fast car until you try a motorcycle,then you will no what fast is.85MPH IN FIRST GEAR,0-60 3 SECONDS. Its a drug cars can not come close too in my books
