Sooooo excited! I'm going to pick it up on Saturday :)

I was able to score a great deal on a new (albeit last years's model) Ninja!!! It's white (very girly!!!)

I am going to pay CASH for it (such a great feeling)!!!!

The insurance is going to cost me $65 a month so I'm looking at cutting down on my cable to balance it out.

I'm so excited!!!

Hey PB! I did pick up the bike. Thanks for asking! I spent most of the day Saturday practicing :) BF brought me to an empty parking lot and we spent about 2 hours just working on low speed handling and getting me comfortable with the bike. Then we went on the back roads for an hour or so just to get a feel for it (then it got too cold!!!). I am still learning and have to be careful until I am more comfortable. But I LOVE it!! I didn't think about work ONCE while I was out there! It was so relaxing!

Very nice! Great timing in the way gas has skyrocketed. I bet they're selling like hotcakes right now.

Enjoy it and be good and always wear your helmet.

Wow, looks cool, I had a Suzuki 90 when I was in my 20s, flipped it one too many times and decided I was done. That just looks fast! Yikes.

Hey PB. I took the beginners class last summer to get my license (if you pass the course then you don't have to do the ministry test. I have a "beginners". I will take the second course in a year or two to get my full license. I can't wait!

Nice! Yes, white would work nicely for you. Also better in the summer heat, probably. Riding with all your gear is going to be hot, and your new AC won't be of any help in this case!

Are there motorcycle riding courses in Canada? ABATE in the US offers courses for beginniners and more advanced people, and apparently many riders have found them helpful. I was going to do them but never got around to it thanks to illness.
