|A Biker is Born!|
A fella all the way from Nunavut Canada has purchased her and will be collecting her later this September. Yes, I did say Nunavut! :-) I find myself actually envious of Serenity's future adventures! That being said, it also got me thinking about the kind of motorcycling I want to do in future. Going off the beaten path is becoming all the more appealing as I also find myself wanting to downsize even where engine capacity is concerned. The mentality that 'bigger is better' has worn thin and I find myself looking at motorcycles that are under the 1000 cc range. But that is a story for another day.

|Q & A|
True to form, my oldest son was hooked immediately and is already dreaming of the day when "daddy brings him to school on a motorcycle." My youngest son, on the other hand still has a way to go before he feels ready to join the club and remains, at least for now, as an honorary member in waiting. It's moments like this, however, that we remember for the rest of our lives. I am far from being a perfect father and find myself constantly reevaluating myself and how I am with my kids. Nevertheless, I am thankful for moments like this where my kids and I can share something in common that will hopefully see us through tougher times in the future.
As for Serenity, well, suffice it to say my boys are sad to see her go as well. I would be lying if I didn't confess that a part of me was regretful of having sold it. Alas, a new chapter begins and with it new experiences...and motorcycles! ;-)
