Day 1 of my motorcycle course is officially over. No crashes, but I did kill the engine about four times. Overall, my body is really tired. Sitting on a bike for that long is much more difficult than I imagined!
On a different note, I finally found a mexican restaurant in Seattle that I actually like. I wandered into this place during the lunch break. It sat on a stretch of road that was dominated by "adult" stores, so naturally, I decided to eat there. I went in, went to the counter, and quickly realized that no one there spoke english. Better yet, I was the only gringo in the place. I threw out some rusty spanish and ended up with a delicious lunch. I'm definitely headed back there tomorrow.
