I have wanted to buy a motorcycle for a while now and with my finances coming into line and my debt all but cleared. (I’m taking advantage of “same as cash” on one CC) I have decided now is the time. I asked a friend to start looking for me and he found a nice starter bike for me. I bought a Kawasaki Vulcan 800 classic for about $2000. It needs a bit of work but functions great. I’d also like to announce I just bought my first vehicle for which I paid cash. I think that felt as good as knocking an item off my bucket list. I really like my bike and I’m looking forward to learning to ride it. My friend is helping me with that as well.
Of course Murphy had to rear his head in all this as well. As my friend was driving it back to his place to garage it for me a cover fell off and broke, and I decided it was time to get new tires for my truck. I now have a CC that is not same as cash that I need to pay off. Instead of taking the money out of the E-Fund I think i’m just going to pay it off next month instead of contributing to the E-fund.
Enjoy a few pics of my bike:
When I moved to Brunswick I incurred between $7,500 and $10,000 in debt. This was the first time I really lived on my own, so I needed to furnish an apartment. I let my mother help, so I spent more than I probably would have on my own, but I didn’t have too make to many trips. I was making more money than I’d ever made, so the payments were easy to make. However, I like plans and this amount of debt called for a plan and a strategy to eliminate it quickly. Enter Dave Ramsey.
So last Friday I made it to one of my little celebration points.
for the first time in 2 years, at least, I weighed in under 360 pounds. I currently am above that mark, but I am hovering very near it. I expect to be completely in the 350’s within the next two weeks. I am well on my way to my next major goal: 350 even.
Good news for all you bored folks out there looking for something to do. I’ve updated my Goals. I probably will not be posting about it every time I do, but this one is a major update. So take a look. Steal a few goals from me and start working on your own. Having Goals will give you focus and help you succeed in life.
