Well, went to the insurance thugs today and cancelled the insurance on my bike and got storage insurance.
Why in god's name would I do this? I'm healthy, the bike is in good condition and according to the wife, everything is going great in the dollars category. In fact, she has stated that I can have zero income for the next three months without creating any kind of strain on things.
The reason is that I'be flying out of the Paradise on Earth called British Columbia to live in Quebec for three months, just as the riding season is about to get underway? The reason I'm going is to complete the 13 week basic training for CBSA(Canadian Border Services Agency aka Customs and Immigration). My uniforms are all pressed and ready to go, then I'll be coming back to chase after the drugs, guns and improperly declared vegetables that are a threat to our national security. Making the jump from provincial to federal is a little nerve-wracking, but I think I'm up to it.
Instead of shooting through the twisties this summer, I'll be trying to translate the following phrase into French: I need to comandeer your motorcycle for national security reasons!
