    Yay... I got laid off last friday too. 25% of the company gone just like that, 2 weeks after we got our first order. I was doing Java/J2EE Telecom stuff, but I'm thinking no more of that, something else within computers.

    I got a couple of leads but my father of all people is telling me to chill out and sit back and collect unemployment for a while and enjoy it. :O

    I'll be around for riding, I'm staying in MA with the parents for now, and I'm not going back to NH even if I do find a job around here... I'm either going to find someplace new in MA or I'm going to move FAR away if I find a job somewhere else. I really wanted to move to CA when I graduated from college, even though things aren't great there right now, I'm going to look for jobs out west too, maybe not in CA but somewhere out there. I might go back to school or (shock) join the air force too.

    Part of me really wants to sell my bike now, but it would be stupid, and I think I'd rip my hair out the minute it was gone.

    Sorry to hear that, man. I hope you get some time off to relax, and find something worthwhile when you're ready.

    I got laid off. I sold my bike. I regretted it every day thereafter.

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.
