The HOG!

I get 70 miles to the gallon on this hog!

This is my trusty scooter! I just bought it about a week ago. I got a really good deal on it, really a blessing. First I must explain the situation:

I usually have to teach at multiple different schools within my organization, the best and easiest (and most practical) way to travel is by scooter. The bus system is not always reliable, sometimes the bus comes...sometimes it doesn't, and it takes a long time to ride the's are too expensive to take everyday, so a scooter it the practical option.

I was going to buy a scooter from a mechanic for about $270. It was a 1990, 100cc scooter, kind of old. He ended up taking a while to get the proper paperwork for me, so I began looking around...Nolan knew of a Taiwanese teacher who was selling an old scooter that she didn't use anymore...I met with her and she told me that I could buy it for $100-150. It seemed like a pretty good deal because it is newer and more powerful (1994 and 125cc's). It needed some repairs so she took it to the shop and the repairs came out to be about $115 (including buying insurance), guess what? She just had me pay for the repairs and she gave it to, what a blessing. I tried to give her money, but she wouldn't accept it. Can you belive it? I got a scooter that has been checked out, fixed and with insurance for $115!

  1. The Lord provides for us well, doesn't he? Even if he didn't get you the bike, He would be good....but he did! It's great to hear. We need to talk soon so I can hear about your life since you got your teaching job over there.
