motorcycle licenses and M-16s

Bet that title got your attention. Believe me when I say, it is appropriate.

As of yesterday, I am an officially endorsed motorcycle operator in the state of Michigan. It has been on my list of things to do for the past 2 years. As much as it sucked doing it in 25 degree weather, it was a great class. For those of you in Michigan, the class is actually a substitute for the road test. I am going to give it a shameless plug as the people who taught it were incredible.

Alpha Training Center in Lansing has a great facility, and man did I learn a lot in a hurry. It was worth every penny and then some.

<shameless plug over>

As much as I am going to catch hell from the clan in Savannah, I have definitely settled on the Ducati Monster 696, in White, thank you very much. It will be released in a few weeks and after sitting on the 695 yesterday there is no more question.

Yes dirty boys, I will be getting the
leather pants and boots–geesh!

Enough of motorcycles until I actually buy one. (Link to article where I stole photo from.)

Next on the crzegrl docket? ‘Camp Where the Hell’ for my 4 day field exercise and M16 qualification this weekend.


From motorcycles to firing weapons to flying in helicopters. All I need to do is get my skydiving gear tuned up for the summer!

And take up knitting.
