I Have a New Obsession.

Over the last couple years, the idea of riding a two-wheeled vehicle to take me to my destinations has appealed to me more and more. I have gone from just wanting to save some money to really appreciating the design and craftsmanship of motorcycles, and in particularly, café racers.

When I first started wanting to get a motorcycle, it was a couple months after owning my parent’s (first generation) 2004 Mazda 3 full-time. I went to school and Franklin, drove to Spring Hill to see my girlfriend, and went to both of my jobs in Cool Springs. The idea of driving somewhere so efficiently really appealed to me (70-90mpg is a heck of a lot better than 26mpg).
