crazy things Fantasies

A new bike?

If you have been reading my posts, you would know that recently I have been getting a lot of stuffs, iPhone (for free), a smart tv, PS4, and as it turns out, I got a motorbike too. How cool is that. It would not be very nice to call it a free one, because it belongs to my cousin and she is moving to another city. Luckily for me, she decided to leave the bike in chennai and much better, with me. Well, despite all this excitement, let me tell you something off record. I do have a license for motorbikes, but, I do not know how to drive one (shhhhhhhhh!!!). 

So, I have a motorbike now, courtesy of my cousin and her husband. I cannot thank them enough. But,to be a little frank, I am actually scared of those beasts. Maybe that was why I never pressed for buying those. I was happy with the car and it serves me well. I have known too many people, who have had serious injuries on a bike. And I do not want to stress that part anymore because, injuries are not the only things that has been there. 

I also feel that, I should not be lying. I have quit lying long time ago. And I now feel that, having a license to drive a motorbike and yet, lacking the skill to do so, is nothing less than lying. So, I decided to learn in this beast. And like all nice things, I had a good start and moved the motorbike without it going off with a jerk due to improper clutch release. I felt better. Hope to be a better rider soon and say proudly that I can drive a motorbike as well. 

That is not a new bike, it has been used by then for quite few years now. But still, for me, it is my first and I like it all the same. Well, not the actual “like”, but I do not hate it. But, it not being new is not an issue, I would still cherish it as I got it from my sister and her husband. And make sure I keep it good till they come back, whenever that be.
