Wittering on about wanting a motorbike has become something of a habit for me. It was only a year or so ago that I decided that I am gown up enough to be trusted with one. Now that we are living in a relatively safe country where the roads are not too busy and people are not too crazy it seems like a good opportunity. There is the added bonus that as we only have one car it would give us some more flexibility for transport in the summer as motorbikes seem to be off the road from November to March.
So with all of those good reasons to give it a go, here come the negatives. Firstly getting a license takes some time and costs about 8500kr (£850 is or approx $1500). Secondly everything costs a fortune, for example this Suzuki GS500 costs £3000 in the UK, but £5000 in Denmark.
This was never going to be a cheap game, but it is probably more expensive here than most other places.
If I really want to do this then I'll have to save for the lessons next year and take it from there. So I promise I'll not mention it again for a while...
