    Default How to make winter seem to last forever.

    Just before Thanksgiving I came across a deal I couldn't pass up. I have been wanting to get back onto a motorcycle for a year or so. My first bike was back in 2007. A new 2007 Kawasaki Ninja 250. Rode it for two years and then sold it. Now I have a 2007 (something about that year) Suzuki Boulevard M50 Limited. Managed to get a couple very short rides on it before winter set in. Spring cannot come soon enough.

    The Ninja.

    Looks good. I've always wanted to get a bike to poke around on. Just never come across the right deal at the right time.

    Awesome, I love the M50's. My father in law has one and I really like the feel of it. I had a M109 bought new in 2007 and just sold it last summer to get a dual sport. Well, I sold it to get a sxs but bought a dual sport to fill the gap.

    I got rid of my first bike back in 2009. Not thinking I would ride again. But the urge struck again.

    I don't think I could ever go without a bike. Out of everything I have ever rode/driven, bikes have always been my favorite.
