  1. School

    Man I loved working as opposed to being a full-time student. With work I was there from 700AM-300PM and nothing was taken home. I had the whole day to myself. With five classes I always have some assignment to work on. My part-time job also gives a decent workload and I have a 102 mile commute! Life is wild I tell ya.

    Shaver did you own a Ducati at one point? I'm thinking of picking up an old 996/916/748. They require more scheduled maintenance but are iconic machines.

    What's now stopping you from getting married, besides finding someone

    Once I started correctly positioning that outside leg my grip loosened up more than before. I know you gotta be light on the bars. You heard of California Superbike School? Apparently they come down to VA so I'm looking to hit them up in the summer - our season is over now. Dang winter

  19. Getting on a bit

    I believe we naturally tend to focus on the negatives more than the positives in our lives. I'm 23 years old going for my 2nd bachelors degree in engineering after doing nothing with my first in biology. Initially wanted to go to medical school (go figure) but found my heart lying in the automotive world. So there went four years of my life. Graduated and worked a very crappy job at a car dealership prior to starting my first semester of engineering. Was applying to some co-ops and alhamdulillah landed a very good one to replace my 2nd semester. Little did I know my crappy job at the dealership caught the eye of my manager! Spent 9 months working earning good money and having fun. Bought a few bikes, did a few trips, and truly enjoyed a taste of the professional working life. Met a lot of wonderful people too. That time ended and now I'm back in school which is a total buzzkill. But again AH I saved up and paid for school to alleviate the financial burden on my parents. I'm also working another solid internship while being a full-time student. It is hectic and stressful but fulfilling. I'm not where I want to be yet and I wish I chose engineering four years ago. But Allah (SWT) has something planned for all of us. Ultimately he has given me everything I asked AND worked for. If it wasn't granted, the reason was elucidated to me later. If he's allowed me to enjoy the fruits of my labor on this path then I know it's the one for me. Your end goal may be 2 or 3 years distance from now. But work towards it one day at a time. One course at a time. And one job at a time. Believe in yourself and Allah when the going gets tough and remind yourself he's watched your back before. So there's no reason he won't help you again.

    Married at 22 was that your personal goal? Personally, I don't want to be married until two or three years after I've graduated and have been working. Want to enjoy my single life for a bit - save up, get a house, travel, bikes, etc.
  21. MMers who meet!

    Minus me. You're missing out
  22. I got a new to me 2008 R6 for my new track bike

    Generally they are cheaper to run and insure but do require surprising amount of maintenance. Anything that isn't japanese at least.
  23. I got a new to me 2008 R6 for my new track bike

    Check it out in 720p60fps I'm going to focus on the racing line and being smooth before going fast. I spent too much time on the latter and at times I was all over the place. Some pictures from Apex Pro Photography. I needed to get the outside leg supported on the tank! Once I started doing that in the last session my back pain disappeared. It also made the bike feel more solid as I put more weight on it. Definitely looking forward to the next season
