Motorcycle for meeee

1981 Suzuki GS250TI bought a bike today! It's a 1981 Suzuki GS250T. Yep, 250 -- I wanted to start off with something small, and this keeps insurance sensible (having had a learner's permit for only a month doesn't get me any big breaks). It's in decent shape -- it's been down a few times in its life, but that's how it goes for a beginner's bike, and it's been nicely taken care of since. New pipes borrowed from a Harley Sportster, seat re-covered by the previous owner, and delivered with safety for 950 loonies. Insurance should only be about $700 for the year.

If all goes well, I should be on the road by the end of the week. Now to get that club membership. (Can it get dorkier than that? I don't think it can.)
