I passed!

Okay where do I start?

Wednesday I took my written motorcycle test. And I passed!!!! So excited. Now I have a permit, which really doesn't do me much good. I'm not suppose to ride without a licensed person. LOL oh well, I still passed.

Now the drama: my scooter that I bought here (Iowa) was totally jacked. Broken beyond repair. Of course they didn't know this until Tuesday, and I didn't find out until I called them. I had two choices: a) go in and pick another color, yeah right, or b) go to Kansas City and get the Portofino Green. Well Christian and I decided on 'c'. We go go KC and they knock off some money for our troubles. Well they agreed! So yesterday that's what we did, we got up early and everything.

So we get home and I want to ride her (don't be perverted here, ok?) Well let's just say it wasn't like I thought it would be. Easy, that is. I mean I thought I'd jump on and take off into the sunset... It didn't quite work out that way, LOL. I was fine if I didn't have to turn. Kinda funny. Don't worry I'm better now. I took her around the neighborhood today. It was a blast. I still need some work. Which brings me to the class I'm taking. I'm taking the motorcycle course at DMACC mid June. After I pass I won't need to take the skills portion at the DMV. I'll just have to get my license. How exciting is that?!?!? Now just pray that I WILL pass.

Last night I went to dinner with some really ass kicking chicks. I mean how in the world can 3 hours go by without us noticing? It was a blast. We really need to do that more often. Seriously!

In other news.....Christian also passed his motorcycle test. He will be investing in a Harley soon. He just has to choose which one he really wants. We might have to take a trip to Minneapolis and see Justin. Justin is our buddy that has been trying to get Christian to buy a Harley for.......well for as long as we've known him. LOL So maybe Justin can help him decide.

Sorry I don't have any photos of me on my scooter, but a tragic thing happened to my camera. No not my Nikon D40, but the point and shoot. I some how manged to run over it with my car. And I don't think hubby likes to use the D40, but I'll see if he will take a few pics of me zipping by. So stay tuned for that. Not much else going on. night.

Well, that is a new one - running over yoru camera. At least it wasn't the D40.

Congrats on passing. I was assuming riding one would be like hopping on and going. Dang...sorry to hear it isn't.
