Unhappy Been a rough past few weeks..

So in the last 2 months i've had some insanely good luck followed by a lot of bad luck...

The good part is a happened to run across my buddy's and my stolen bikes from 6 months ago! I'll write this up soon...it's pretty amazing although the bikes haven't been recovered yet.

The bad part...shortly after that happend i was riding across the state to naples where i work in the summer and i got clocked by a plane doing 127 in 70. Added onto to that it turns out i had a suspended license for a ticket i forgot about from 6 months ago...i payed it this morning and it only cost me $20!! Ahhh. And on top of that i had no registration with me as well as no motorcycle endorsement(i took the course over a year a ago but i couldn't add it onto my missouri license. So i'm over in west palm this weekend to pay the ticket on monday morning(today) but last night i get pulled over by a state trooper. I was only doing 60 in a 55 but somehow his radar clocked me at 75! Luckily this was the coolest cop i ever met and instead of taking me to jail he gave me another unknowingly driving with a suspended license ticket and a ticket for no seat-belt(even tho i was wearing one).

I almost have it all taken care of now but this has cost me near or over $1000 in fines... The moral of this, MAKE SURE you have all your driving stuff taken care of!!! My bike has been sitting for almost 3 weeks now because i could risk getting pulled over on it again.

I do not know about your State, but in this Province of B.C. Cdn., next year the price of compulsory or even other added insurances will be hiked up due to said points PLUS, if you also have points against you, it take a year of clean riding/driving to cut off lowely three points & if you have 24 points against you---then you need a number of clean years according the the law.

Good news on the bikes, I take, but ponder about finding stolen bikes & often feel IF a bike was stolen I would not want to see it at a later date as the deductable of thieft insurance is only two grand so good chance those that stole my bike would have done more then 2 grand or damage to the bike. Well my way of looking at it.

I know all about good luck followed by bad luck.

One time i found a dime on the ground in a taco bell. So i dropped it into that water thing where you try to land it on the platforms, well i won a free taco. So i happily ate the taco, and it gave me teh poops.

This quote always makes me feel better.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler
