Hopefully, when I come back from Japan I can get my bike and take a couple of weekender solo trail ride and camping trips. Just for the experience of it. I'm been dissuaded from riding the bike around and been advised to go in a cager instead but I don't expect those people who don't ride to understand the real feeling and excitement of riding so I'm not going to rough it out with them.

My Life Without a bike but with a license....pfff!

Yes, it's been awhile. Being a uni student I really have a life elsewhere out of being online (Liar!). Hence the rarity of a post. I reckon my posts are like endangered tigers.... If you see it you should convert to become a nun.

Anyway, couple of updates, so basic bike gear ( Jacket, Gloves, pants, soft tailbag, helmet) are all here. And.... I passed the R-license test ( 1/2 a point take that biatch... by biatch I mean the Licensing offence dun take my license away...)! I'm ecstatic since I had quite some problem with my Figure 'O's. Well, Japan next, maybe a souped up CB250 or CB400 would be nice! Even a small scooter will be up. Oh yea, My GPS finally arrived. I've been playing around with it like bringing it to uni and everywhere I go. It's a Garmin GPSMAP 76CSx and looks like a old handphone from the early 90s. If I drop it in water.... It floats! How cool is that!.... no really eh... :D
