A Schwinn Bicycle = $210 deduction

Yesterday, we dipped into the Scooter Jar in order to buy a bicycle from Costco. Holly has been wanting a bicycle for a long time now and with the warm spring weather, we decided to take a loan out on the jar for a Schwinn. I will post a pic soon.

I took it out on a ride myself yesterday and today and had a blast riding around! It's been quite a few years since I've ridden and I forgot how much fun it was to ride. The last time I actually rode a bike was 8 years ago in Arkansas on my mission. I'll have to dig out a pic of that too...

Anyway, all this 2 wheel riding has re-inspired me in my savings for the Buddy. I can't wait.

Yipee! The jar is getting richer!! $924.91 is in the jar as of today. This month is my birthday, so I got $200 in cash which went straight to the jar. I'll put the dough in the bank and slip the deposit receipt into the jar so that we don't have cash laying out in large amounts.

$606 and Some Change

Today, the jar is at $606!

Also, yesterday Holly and I went to Fun On Wheels and checked out the Italia. It is pretty sweet. This was the only 125 buddy model they had in stock. We didn't get a chance to test ride it because it was rainy outside. But we did fire it up and it sounded awesome. V-R-R-R-O-O-O-O-M!

The Waiting - Part 2

Sometimes I feel like Homer Simpson when he was waiting desperately for his background check to clear so he could get his gun. I love this clip...

My First Scooter...Accessory!

After receiving my email from last week, Brett Ratner of Genuine Scooters Dealer Development sent me this SWEET Italia key chain which just arrived in the mail today! Thanks Brett! This is my first scooter accessory.

Possible Pilot for a Buddy Commerical?

Here's a fantastic commercial for the Buddy--made by a buddy owner. Pretty awesome for being made by fans and not even getting paid for it!

Good Job guys!!
