Morning.

Took a break from riding bike and brought the G today. Mainly cuz i've just been riding the shit out of it and I think I've made the bike an economical means to save money on my commute to work which in turn has almost sucked the fun and joy out of owning a bike. I made my self feel like I HAD to ride it when ever it wasn't raining in order for me to be saving money and what not. It became a chore. I don't want to sell it so I'm just taking a break from it. Plus it was 7:30 this morning and already 80* so its going to be hot as all balls and would much rather have my a/c instead lol

Also this is funny

Riding is never a chore, it is a godsend. You have electric start, 5 gears, and disc brakes. You haz nothing to bitch about.

Also i would prefer to ride in this heat than sit in my cage with AC.

Also also you dont buy a bike for fuel economy, you buy a bike because you enjoy riding. Fuel economy is the bonus side effect.

I know. That's how it needs to be. and I do enjoy riding but I got myself a little flustered yesterday when I did another 10 mile highway journey and was still scurred real bad. Something about 75 just makes me tense up and the wind blowing all over the place just makes me feel not stable so I was just a bit butt hurt. Plus I meantally made myself things it was a chore which I know it shouldn't be. hence the takeing a day or 2 to drive the G and get my focus back on just having fun with it.

Just man up. My first time on highway was uber scary, night time, sportster, with dad. Was also super fun once you figure out you are not going to die.

Also sounds like you bought the wrong type of bike for your needs, our are just not meant to ride and should have bought a prius to save fuel.

also in regards to text last night take the advanced motorcycle safety class.......the one where you bring your own bike. not the basic safety class that we've all taken.
