Maybe I never should gotten rid of the Tengai. Or perhaps I just never have the Bandit. Though I really my time spent with the vehicle (and, for that the former), my time with it was cut after just over a and 5000 miles.

While I the bike. in reality I could lost much more .

So, I recovered from that mishap, I tried to shake the bug from my system. Most I know assumed, given I went through, that so would be a no-brainer. But a select those who have known me for a time and know me well, did not agree.
