So . . . we picked out a bike that he liked -- total price, $538, including all accoutrements, extra insurance, blah blah blah, and it's a killer. I guess it better be, at that price . . . but after all, it's his 13th birthday plus Christmas and I'd rather he had this than a computer game.
His mother happily destroyed his PS3 during a shouting match by throwing it against a wall -- besides, I'd prefer him riding around on a bike than playing Grand Theft Auto.
We also bought him an amp for his guitar, but I'll go into that tomorrow . . . it's a typical Japan Fail story.
So here are the pics and the movie . . .
