Well after a number of years I finally broke down and bought a 2010 Honda VT1300CT Interstate motorcycle. It was very fortuitous that our old van finally gave up the ghost and when we were quoted a cost of $1700 for the third transmission for the 1994 beast Karin and I decided to that it was time for another vehicle and when the prices for gas started to rise again the decision to get the bike proved to be the better choice.
So what does this mean? Well it means that I will be getting to do some traveling this summer. Looking forward to the open road. The best part is that I also picked up an extra helmet for a passenger. Who will be the first passenger… well it is a toss up between one of my daughters or the wife. I think that if the daughter has her way it will be her. Either way I am looking forward to doing a little riding this summer.
