A biking fozbaca update. Over the weekend I finally decided on a motorcycle. Went to the local Honda dealer and after talking with the sales dude a bit decided I wanted a Honda Shadow A.C.E. 750 Deluxe. It is a cruiser, has a "classic" look, just enough muscle and doesn't cost a fortune. I had him check on financing, never had payments on anything but credit cards and student loans, while I tried to decide on color. I'm partial to the Metallic or Orange, want to make it easier to be seen by those mad auto drivers.

Candy Dark Red/Black
Unfortunately all was for naught, for this past weekend at least. Over the past 5 years I have been very diligant about paying off all my debt. Taking care of those pesky college student credit cards still hanging around. Paying off my car and student loans. Being free of it all for over a year has been such a good feeling, til saturday. It seems that not having any debt for 1+ years makes me a risk, enter much confusion.
All will be well. In a couple of weeks I will be back to buy a bike, with a slightly larger down payment. So the moral of the story is no debt isn't always a good thing.
Though in two weeks maybe I'll decide on a different bike :)
