My new ride...

Well as most of you know Ive been looking for a bike for a while...a LONG while and the time came abot 3 weeks ago that I finally got permission to get one...the only hitch was it was for the track only. So I found a good deal on a Hyosung GT650S (half price! ) and made plans to go buy it









So...two weeks later Im faced with a new decision...get the bike for the track OR...get a brand new '07 Mustang...










I opted for the stang



Not the best pic ever but I like it Anyways...its a V6 5-speed with 210hp I just got it yesterday and have been honing my shifting skills ever since and Im getting to where I have smooth start-offs...its just a little different than a bike clutch. But hey who says you HAVE TO have a bike to have fun... Bad news...me and a friend just found a ding in the door Hopefully I can get it fixed somehow

NICE!!
glad you got something, lets be honest you just wanted a bike to pick up chicks and that'll work just as well

I never liked the old mustangs but I gotta say those new ones look TIGHT... the only thing is they have prehistoric suspension (live axle) for some reason...

my parents offered me the car too... shoulda gone that way and then got a bike later

Man that is funny... I was just talking to the wife about some similar stuff..

We are setup to get 2 new leases this year...later summer. I was planning on getting nicer cars (current 2004 F150 super crew FX4 & 2005 Chevy Equinow AWD) to a new Tohoe (loaded out of coarse) and a Lincoln MKz (obvoiusly loaded). I was telling the wife I would love to get a third bike for the house... a full out HD bagger to put down some seroies miles. Use it to go up north, and maybe some road trips like Chicago and stuff. The wife said... why don't we get cheaper cars and the new bike...

My response... why not get the better cars and the bike anyway!

it's nice to have money, it seems like it can buy you happiness, but in the long-run,,,as long as you have happiness, that is all that counts! (even though money lets you get happiness a lot more )
