March 12th was a good day! I woke up that morning in the "Tilton Hilton" at the Denver Airport and made my way out to gate B47 where a 757 was sitting there waiting to take me home to Seattle. After arriving in Seattle I made my way south on I-5 until I connected to westbound Hwy 16. A few minutes later I found myself at Tacoma Motorsports and staring at the bike I've been waiting since September for. After some paperwork and whatnot, I was the proud owner of a new, blue 2008 Yamaha WR250R! I was driving my little Mazda so I had to zip home to get the ol' pickup in order to bring the bike home.
When I got home my parents were there after just buying their brand new red Toyota Prius, which in a way is also "green"... (pictures soon). I hung out with them a bit and checked out their new car but then had to be on my way if I was to get back to the bike shop before closing. I cruised over the bridge again and loaded up the new toy. Erik, the sales dude helped me out with loading and also gave me a set of tiedowns as well.
After getting the bike home I unloaded it and proceeded to tear up the property a bit just to see how it handled. It wasn't much in terms of riding but it was a total blast and I can't wait to get out on some real trails and enjoy the new adventures that await!
