No, I didn't get hit, thank God. Just took the car I married into into the shop today for some recall work. About 700 bucks (on top of free recall stuff) worth of work needs to be done; that's a sweet bike right there. I admit that having a car to go to costco and save money that way, and to be able to get out of the city and avoid planes (when costs are high like holidays) is nice. BUT, maintenance is a bummer.
Here's hoping one day that I'll live where cars don't need much maintenance because of weather, and that I'll only need the car when the kids need to be hauled (we're gonna fill a pew baby!) or I need the 50 lbs. of beef for the big bbq.
