Happy thanksgiving 🦃 🇨🇦 .
One thing I learned recently was to be grateful for what you have because you never know when it might go away. You might have something or someone in your life that you love and the next day they’re gone. Live in the moment and enjoy every second of it. Don’t take it for granted.
The other day I decided to sell my R3...it was the toughest decision I’ve ever had to make. I worked so hard to get that bike and I sacrificed a lot to get my hands on it. 3 months later, 3,000kms later, $3,000 later and an a lot of great memories later, I’m here having to type this. I made this decision because with the season coming to an end and the snow on the way, I knew I would be in need of a car and something to get me around. I made responsible decision, I made the right decision and I made a sacrifice that would benefit me in the long run. I wish I didn’t have to and yes I may regret it now but I’ll soon see that it was for the best.
I’m saying this now because when I still had the R3, I never truly appreciated how much I had and how lucky I was to own a bike like that. I didn’t realize how much it was affecting my life. It helped get to so many places and it helped me get out more and be more adventurous and explorative instead of sitting at home alone doing absolutely nothing. I took it for granted for how much I needed that bike and now it’s gone. Just like that, my most prized possession and pretty much the only thing that made me happy is now with someone else, far away from my reach.
I remember when I had Rosa, my old Ninja 250-R. I loved that bike and when I bought the R3 I had to sell her. I didn’t want to and I remember having a hard time making that decision but I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep both so I did what had to be done.
One thing for sure is that I will eventually get another bike (maybe in the summer). I might get another R3 or maybe I’ll upsize to a 600 or 1000. Who knows? But like I said earlier, be thankful for everything you have and take advantage of every opportunity because you may lose it at any given moment.
