The Newest Bike

Actually it is a motorcycle. I have some logical reasons for buying it. They are also true.
It has a reputation for being reliable and long-lasting
It gets good gas mileage and that is important now that I am commuting.
I have been wanting to get a new bike so I would know how it has been treated

As I said, those are all true. But, the fact is many bikes would fit the bill for those reasons. The fact is that I chose this bike because it sounds so damn good. It is a V4 and when I heard one idling at a stop light in town, I knew I would have to get one someday. I am just a bit surprised that it happened so fast.

I present to you my new 2008 Honda VFR/Interceptor. Bought new as a 2008 leftover off the dealer floor.

A Fresh Start

I have been with my current employer for nearly 10 years. Given that the plan was to stay for 2 years and then go to Grad School, I would say that I have far exceeded my expectations. I have made more money and taken on more responsibility than I ever thought possible. But...

I think it is time for a change. I have been looking at other jobs and I hope to hear something positive mid week. The idea of getting a fresh start is very appealing. An empty inbox. A new set of responsibilities. No "shoulda, woulda, couldas". Just fresh enthusiasm. Hope it works out.
