Progress has been delayed but got some moolah finally!

| April 29, 2012 | 0 Comments

The opportunity has not presented itself this week until recently to make any progress on my bike, and my usual every-other-Sunday jaunt to my fathers shop has been postponed until the 13th of May.  Although I’ve got a bunch of other hobbies (mountain biking, hiking, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, now multiple side businesses, etc.) that have kept my motorcycle jonesing at bay, I’ve been a bit frustrated at times that I didn’t have all the money I needed RIGHT THIS MINUTE to finish my motorcycle quickly.

What’s helped with this anxiety is that I’m a big believer in the Law of Attraction, and so I’ve taken the time to just sit around and day dream about having already completed this project and seeing myself cruising around on my bike.  Just feeling what it would be like enjoying it and not focusing on a time limit for it happen or a requirement for where the money would come from.

And this weekend it totally paid off!

A friend of mine has had my previous mountain bike for sale in his shop for almost a year now.  It’s been so long I’d forgotten he even had it.  This weekend when I stopped by his shop to talk about a potential new business venture with him he caught me with a big ol’ smile on his face and said, “Hey man, I got a surprise for you.” and he proceeded to pull out  all the money I need to finish up my motorcycle PLUS enough to pay for a new helmet and accessories.

Kick ass!

Totally pumped again, I’m now gett’n ready to strip the paint off the tank next plus tear down the carburetors.  To accommodate clip on handle bars I’m going to chop the headlight mounts and will sand blast and paint them as well as the headlight housing.  For tires I think I’ll go with the Shinko 230 Tour Master tires from Motorcycle Superstore as have been suggested by BlackBII from the Yamaha Triples forum..  I can get both front and rear for about $135 total.

To all those out riding this weekend, be safe and have fun!  I’ll be joining you soon.
