That sounds a lot easier than finding a job that I don't have to show up for and killing off my loved ones in an effort to have quality time with my bike...lol.

Someone has to say it: This is definitely a first world problem. Whatever happened to perspective? I don't have enough time to play with my toys. Cry me a river was right. Sack up, you're a grown ass man with responsibilities!

Respect! You guys are living the dream, doing what you love and age is just a number. My coworkers are in their 40's and they constantly complain about back problems. I'm in my mid 20's and I want to ride as long as I can on a sport, so I eat healthy, workout and work hard to pay for my hobbies.

Perspective: I know it is a first world problem....I'm working in the third world and see poverty on a level that most people in America couldn't comprehend.

That's why I bitch on the forum with the other Pani owners, and not in the streets with the people dying of starvation.

I will probably be going to hell for spending on a bike what I could feed a village for a year, but somehow I feel I will be in good company
