New Years Resolutions

Don't know if this has been posted before. Might be interesting for some, might not. You might have big goals or something very small. It's all good. Post up your new years resolution.


My aim is to pay off my annoying credit card so I can buy a ktm road bike, Most likely a 690 duke or 990 super duke

I've done the first one for years:

Exercise more.

Lose a bit of weight.

Find a clean 380 EXC.

Try not to react to a**holes on the road.

Very good Baja. last one might be hard I to want a 380, but the better half made a point the other day about the fact that I hardly ever get out on the dirt since we moved to the coast and I have a couple rfs bikes already and other dirt bikes, so I think its time to try a ktm roady. Will be my first one.

Anyone else? 22 views of this page so far and only 3 posts, you don't have to be technical to post in here, I'm sure many of you out there have a new years resolution?

BTW. I've seen a few super clean 2011-2013 990R Adventures in your home
state. That would be my choice over the 1190 or 1290.

Post up folks!

DW i was purposely holding off on this one.The wife and I made an agreement not to eat too much "New years eve dinner" with the family.

So when we got to that part about making a binding resolution for 2017, i kind of flaked on the idea

The only thing that I have that qualifies as a resolution is to ride more than I have over the past 2 or 3 years.
Everything else is projects:
*blog more and build up an audience.
*pick up more moon lighting work (gotta pay for that Super Duke!)
*Get in 'good' shape and do, as in complete, Tiger Valley's Bug Out Drill this year (been on my list for a long time)
*Rescue more dogs

Awesome.

We have been trying to take a break but it never seems to happen. Our last foster went to his new home on Monday (2017-01-02) and I thought we'd take a few weeks off. Nope. We're picking up a pair of GSD puppies on Saturday. They'll have to stay with us a few weeks so they can do their shots. I'm not sure if we'll adopt them out before they get spayed or if we'll let the adopter handle that.

On the bright side: German Shepherd puppies!

I've never owned and adventure style bike. I was thinking duke, but adventure might be alright. My wife doesn't like the adventure, says it's ugly, that doesn't worry me though.
