Nevertheless, I admit that I am unfaithful. There are thoughts of selling the Honda, and getting a new bike instead. And after having moved the idea in my heart, I know it will happen eventually. I was even able to narrow it down to two models: A lowered BMW F650GS or a Triumph Bonneville.
Since I haven't got the budget to act on my desires (yet), Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs came to mind. (One of the few things that have been deeply and irrevocably implanted into my memories during business school...)
I need a bike, any model, age or shape will do.
August 2009 - Safety Needs (Comfort):
I require good equipment, and a scooter, too, to improve my riding skills on two wheels.
September 2009 - Social Needs (Love):
I join a riding group, and I publish my blog, too, to interact with other motorcycle enthusiasts. And yes, I love my little Honda.
November 2009 - Self-Esteem:
My riding skills are improving, and I test my boundaries (temperature-wise).
December 2009 - Self-Actualization:
I am on a quest of finding the perfect bike to reach my full potential as a rider.
Note to reader: Sorry for the bla bla, I am not myself lately, and suffer from migraines, since the Chinook wind kicked in, and warmed up temperatures by 30C within two days.
