I guess I shouldn't be complaining, because I'm fortunate to be able to go to a good university and get a degree, but damn, with all the new bikes coming out, I just want to go riding and get a new bike. Right now I'm attending the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) where I'm taking Engineering in hopes of someday designing motorcycles or something. This is all good, except the fact that I'm 1000 miles from home and it's freaking cold outside with a foot of snow on the ground. It's getting warmer now (~-10 C) but it was around -50 earlier this year. Right now I can't wait until the end of april when I'm done exams and can go home and ride (and work :ugg:), it just gets depressing being away from everything I love. One plus is the legal drinking age is 18, but I have much more fun on my bike than at the bar. I plan on sticking through it and getting my degree so I can afford a nice bike someday, but I still sometimes wish I could quit school, work for awhile, get a bike and go racing. Well, that's my rant for the day, thanks for listening.
