Where I am Currently
After my two surgeries I needed to get both of my knees better, I had a long road ahead of me. Dealing with mental struggles and rehab to get back all I lost from the injuries was no easy road. I ended up nearly missing the first half of my first semester in college and falling way behind, but I managed to catch up and do what I needed too. Then not too long after being back at school I decided I needed to start working because I wanted another bike.
Getting another bike
Right after I crashed I knew I needed and wanted another bike. The question was how am I going to let my parents let me get another one? The answer is that they wouldn’t find out. I came up with the idea that I would rent a storage unit and store my bike there and have everything in my name. I just needed the money so I started working about 30 hours a week just on the weekends while I was at school. Then came winter break. This was just what I needed. I had a month and a half to just work and save money. I worked about 65 hours a week during winter break to save enough money. In that month and a half I managed to save more than I thought.
Finding the right one
While working all that time during winter break I was on face book marketplace looking for bikes whenever I had the chance. I wanted a bike even cleaner than the R6. Then came across an ad for a 2012 Triumph Daytona 675r. It was perfect. I came with an inline 3 which meant it didn’t sound like any regular bike. It also came with many mods that I absolutely loved. I knew right away that was the one. I messaged the guy right away saying I had cash in hand ready to come get the bike. The guy was just 20 minutes away from me so it wasn’t too far of a drive to go get the bike. When I got to the guy’s house and saw the bike my face immediately lit up and I knew I made the right choice.
