Don't give up your BMW or this could happen.

So up until August of this year I was the proud owner of 2008 335xi. Damn do I miss that car, it made me smile every time I drove it. Sadly it was a lease and I had to give it up. At the time I was living in So Cal. So I drove a lot, and the tire screeching AWD launch, made stop and go traffic much more interesting. So I moved to DC. Based on some money consideration, and that well DC is supposed to have great public transit. I decided not to bring a car with me.

But there is a saving grace... I still had my Aprillia RS250 Cup Version street bike. So there was still some fun and acceleration in my life. So during my move, I drove to my parents house, and left my bike there with the plans to having it shipped out to DC in a few weeks.

Well here is where it all goes down hill, I leave the bike in my folks garage and fly to DC. My dad is an avid motorcycle rider as well. Well a week goes by, and I start arranging shipping to get my bike. When I call my dad to get the details, he says, "Son, I have some bad news." AHHHH CRAP. What happened. So he tells me he took my bike out for a ride, and something has happened to the motor. Well I have never seen a piston so beat up. I don't know exactly what happened but I suspect he put cheap gas in my high strung race motor.... So at least dad is doing the right thing, and paying to fix it. If and when I can get the parts, I am still waiting on some from Italy.


So now it is X-mas. The motor for my bike is in 30 pieces on the bench. I am still morning the loss of my BMW as I walk in the snow. I can't even get there in a hurry if I had too. So my parents call me up all excited and tell me they got me a great present. So what am I thinking... A car, a bike? I don't know.... Well look to post 2, to see what they got me.

THEY BOUGHT ME A MOPED.... I MEAN REALLY I CANT EVEN GO FASTER
THAN 35 MPH.... Is some self respect too much to ask for.

I went from having the best car I have ever owned and a bike I loved riding... TO A FREAKING MOPED.

I mean you know what they say. Mopeds are like rough ones taken home on a drunk night, they may be fun to ride, but don't let your friends see you riding them.


So the moral of the story, Don't let your BMW go with out owning another one... or you could end up on a moped....

Note, feel free to rip on me. I didn't leave for college, I bought and paid for both with my own money. I gave it up, to go to Law school out here. So now I have no income....

Just understand... no one has 75k to spend on vehicles while in college. You're going to be a lawyer.. you need to better analyze stories and formulate more believable lies. Otherwise you are going to be a terrible lawyer...

Good Luck at GW.
