Things Change

Alright so, as you may know, in early May I put a deposit on a Honda CBR125R, a new little sport bike with remarkable pep for its size. I was deposit number 6 or 7, which would put me in the first set of bikes received. But, everything was running late, I had to buy a second set of gear so I could have proper gear for bike training because the gear that came with the bike wasn't in (even though the guys promised it would be). Then we were promised that we would get our bikes in the first few days of June. That didn't happen, the earliest I could get that bike is on June 12th. So, I had heard about Buell, and how they had a small bike that was low so us short people could ride it too. There's only one dealer in Edmonton that carries them. So, I gave them a call today when I got home from work, and they had a Blast in stock. A 2000, in perfect condition, great first owner. I sat on it and was impressed with the size, and the feel of the bike. Insurance followed quickly, and I pick it up in the morning. Hopefully the registry will open at 10 so I don't have to wait too long before I can ride. I'm just not looking forward to going back to Honda and telling them that I'm no longer interested in their bike. The morale of this story is: Don't promise more than you can keep. Also: Don't buy the first thing you see, shop around.
