Should we buy a Bike?

My husband and I have been thinking about buying a motorcycle. It looks like fun, and it would give us something to do together when the grandparents take the kids for the weekend. I can just see it now! We'll put on our helmets, and take off for the day. It won't take hardly any gas as we travel around the countryside and see it all. I can already feel the wind in my face, and the feel of the bike as I hold on while we take the curves.

We just have to figure out which one we can afford. I was looking at the motorcycle insurance policies, and I was pleasantly surprised by how affordable they were. Because the motorcycle isn't very likely to cause much damage to another vehicle, the liability part was really cheap. I'm not sure why the comprehensive part was cheap, too. Of course, a new bike is pretty expensive. Maybe we'll look at the used ones instead.

It's also a great excuse to go shopping. In addition to helmets, we'll need jackets and other protective clothing. I'll even get to go shoe shopping for new motorcycle boots. Just picture it! We'll be all decked out in black leather on the back of that bike. There's no way I want to end up with road rash if we drop the bike. You know what they say about new riders; it's not a matter of if you drop the bike, but when. I'm not looking forward to it, but they say it is bound to happen.

Next time you see us, we might just be on the back of our new bike. There won't be any need to be jealous. If it looks like fun, you can always go out and get your own bike. We'd love to have someone else to ride with!
