So, yesterday I left my house at about 730 AM, my friends were driving me from montgomery, AL to marietta, GA (www.wowmotorcycles.com
) - i should've known this was going to be a bad trip when my cell phone died less than 5 minutes out of the city... we got to the used dealer we were going to see at about noon EST time, found the bike (listed at 5,000$) and paid 4,700$ cash out the door (1997 cbr 900 rr, yoshi slip on, no body damage, 6,800 miles) - well they took some time in the service department getting it ready, and by thet ime we were ready to leave (they were done) it was 4pm EST.... and pouring rain.... and 31 degrees, I hadn't brought any rain gear with me but oh well, I hopped on the bike to make my way home, I got from marietta to jonesboro GA before I was so cold, and wet, that I couldn't go on. I couldn't feel my hands or my legs, or my face really. I stopped for the night at a days inn, wheeled the bike in the room (which was a feat of manuevering, i had to make a 90 degree turn that was like half the length of the bike. woke up the next morning at 11:30am EST, and made it home by 2:30 CST, YIKES it's cold! but the bike is nice, and this trip - barring freezing rain - went better than the last one. I'm back in business.
