    Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

    I won a new motorbike last night.

    I'm now dreaming of riding down the open highway, the wind whipping past my hair, the open fields whizzing by, the freedom, the speed, the exhilaration. No longer constrained by four wheels and an artificially temperature controlled environment, I am now one with the world around me.

    Ignoring my wife's mercenary cries of "let's sell it, we could keep the money".

    Mere silver coins for a bitumen stallion such as this ?

    The chance of freedom and masculine pride ?

    Mere words cannot convey my horror and disgust.

    Look out mere mortals, I'm flying by, eat my dust!

    This is no tawdry mid life crisis, this is a chance to be reborn, a chance to relive, a chance to redefine a comfortable life and move out onto the edge!

    When I was a kid, I won a live turkey in a Thanksgiving Day raffle. My Dad put it in the back of the station wagon for the trip home. It shit all over the place. Guess which lucky winner got to clean it up?

    It's not exactly the old Firebird that I used to ride in Bangkok, eh?

    My driver's put in an offer for it, and a TEFLr mate offered to buy it as well.

    Fool, you have no idea if you think the front brake is useless, 70% of your breaking power comes from the front.

    A motorbike is different to you bmx with training wheels.

    Happiness is a warm gun or in this case a free moto-cy. Remember your own words as regards motorized two wheelers and those that ride them...enjoy the moment, but don't get stupid on us.
