Ticket to Ride

I was thinking about trying to do some traveling this summer but I’m thinking against it now. It seems like it’s going to cost way too much to fly anywhere, especially if there’s any car rental associated with where ever it might be I travel to.

Last summer, I did some reorganization of my finances and I’m doing much better on saving money but I can’t just go spend it as soon as I have a little bit saved up. Not the most responsible thing to do with money. I have to save up so I’m not going into grad school flat broke.

Anyways, back to the point – I’m not doing any long distance traveling this summer. I am thinking about going to Six Flags or the beach or something, though. I think I can manage that. I am, however, considering purchasing a second vehicle that could save me some money – a motorcycle or scooter. I’m actually leaning towards a scooter with some power. I still have to do some research on what’s a good deal but I’m looking at the Suzuki Burgman 400 or 650. To your right, you see the 2008 Burgman 650. Yes, I understand I just said I’m looking at saving money and yet I contradict myself by talking about a new major purchase. But I’m thinking that I can save quite a bit of money in gas by purchasing something that has good gas mileage and a small tank for my daily driving. I’ve also considered a Vespa or something electric like it to save on gas completely. I also don’t know what license (if any) I need for a scooter. Again, more research is necessary. Any input is always welcome.

So, that’s it for now. I’ll keep driving the Mario Kart cycles and scooters until I can get one of my own. For all I know, this is just a whim and I won’t follow through with it. I do love my Honda!
