yeah well my brother is in college now and he does pay for some stuff but my parents supply money into a debit card account that pays for the essentials like food, groceries, house hold supplies and what not so i wont be drained quite like other but still i completely understand your point.

i would like a 4 wheeler more than a go kart thing but 4 wheelers are expensive... a new 4 wheeler is way out of the question and a used one is still a little more than i want to spend. dirtbikes are also expensive and a road bike would be really sweet but there also closer to the 5k range which is a little more than i wanna spend.

these things are pretty badass. i saw one on the side of the road a month or so a go and i had to stop and check it out. i told my friends if it was under 2,500 i would buy it and unfortunately it was 5,000 lol... it was alot more expensive than we thought it was gonna be... they are cool tho

My parents also do the same sort of thing with groceries and stuff like that, but I found out real quick that you gotta cut out all the little extra things that you don't realize you spend money on when you have steady income. But you could get a decent older bike for about 1,500 to 2,000. I have been looking for one and that price range can get you a real clean mid 80s Honda.
