    buying a suzuki is going to be difficult.

    i've been saving religiously for an S50 and was well on my way to get one for next riding season. Monday i turn on the big screen tv (3 years old) and all i get is a loud sreaching noise out of it and no picture. I use a pc as a tv in the bedroom (wintv2000) and by wens the monitor starts flashing a green color when ever it wants. Then the answering machine on the phone quits working. i go out to start the car today (it's been sitting awhile because I ride my bike) and rrooaarrr the exhaust goes south. this pc i use for the internet has suddenly decided to crash or freeze the mouse when ever it wants. My bike fund just took a serious beating and I am so glad this week is over!!

    Several of those things are cheap fixes. Don't go flinging money around just yet.

    I'm figuring close to a grand. This has just been an unbelievable week. Think I'll hide under the bed today.

    Hey for the stuff in the home, sounds like a power surge. You may be able to claim it on your home owners (assuming you have home owners) insurance.

    As for the car exhaust...well.....
    Sometimes you need to ask yourself, "WWGD?"...Just be awesome, that's all!

    I say fudge it, man. Get the Suzuki M50 and the Zuke gods will smile upon you. All the planets will align and there will be universal harmony. Then, everything will fall in place and you'll have your other stuff before you know it.

    If Zuke Dude smiles on him he will be broke, unable to afford gas or a girlfriend.

    Patch the exhaust ($10), get second hand TV ($50), buy a cheap PC ($300), get a used bike and RIDE (priceless).
    Oh, he's very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, d!ckheads--they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude.
