How Riding a Motorcycle is Like Being on the Moon

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:25 pm by Ian

I just got the bill to renew my motorcycle insurance. My last bill was $140. This one is $97. Nothing about my coverage has changed, so I assume that the decrease is due solely to the fact that I’ve managed to not kill myself in the last year.

A new chum is accident-prone; Luna is that sort of place. They say if a new chum lives a year, he’ll live forever. But nobody sells him insurance first year.
