New Ride

The rising cost of gas has forced us to find ways to save money. We have a car and truck. Not a huge truck, but a truck non the less. Tim drives this to work and helps about a billion people move during the summer with it. Well, gas in that thing is not cheap. So....we decided it would be worth our money to buy him this little trail 90 motorcycle. There is a local guy in town who fixes them up and sells them really cheap (a few hundred dollars cheaper then we had been finding in the nickel and other places around town). The good thing about this is that Tim can fix things on it when something goes wrong. He's saved us so much money over the years working on our cars when they need to be fixed. But anyway, this thing gets like 70-90 miles per gallon or something crazy like that. Yesterday when he filled up the tank....$5. How easy on the pocket book is that?! He would be riding a bike to work but the road he has to take is not safe for bicycles. So this works great!
