Well I think we've come up with a plan, appreciate all the input and offers.
She got a 1br lease for 6 months in skanky monica (arharh, thats a good one)...shes 13 miles to work (going east) and can walk to all the stores, etc. Her call on that one. New job and all, the less baggage right now the better.
my boy wants to attend college in CA come fall, so with 2 dogs he's watching and all, we'll have to find a better place (rent a home) at that time...we'll have some time to look around more during the first 6 months also.
Talked to my buddy, we decided to hold off on a sale/new bike for ole geo (sniff)...I told him he's welcome to come down and take it, I'll have an excuse to visit MI again and pick it up sometime, wont' cost him a dime to do that. Like most folks though, he'd rather own what he's riding but it's an option to just use what I have for his vacation.
I'm going to remain an AZ resident long as I can since we still own a house here (probably will forever in this friggin housing market). Depends on what the $$ advisor tells us as well but half the houses in my little 'sub' so to speak, are vacant. No help in this country on housing for working folks I can see, so we're stuck.
Guess I'll use up some of those repair dollars spent on the LT in the next few months. I use my K12S mostly anyways but last year, only 16k miles on the KS, the remainder of 49k miles for the year was on the LT (lots of long trips) so it will be put to good use I think
Gee, do bikes complicate everyone's life as much as mine?
