So far this month's been a bang up month for me.

1) Replaced both rear tires on the car after getting towed to Firstone from work. ($200)

2) Last weekend coming home from my ISP in Paola my car overheated: Tow and new radiator ($500)

3) Brakes mushy. Just low fluid? Added fluid... see if that fixes it. Now if I could just get the car started: New starter: $150

4) Bob Jones, the guy who built both of the XS1100's I owned passed away last month and I didn't find out about it until I went by his shop to see why he hadn't answered any of my e-mails. Bummer time.

5) Things at work which have been going strong are starting to slow down, management is freaking and fragmenting, resulting in lots of friction and stress. Not a happy work environment and I'm seriously getting stressed out to the point of migraines.

6) Hasn't happened yet, but there's still plenty of time this month.....

That sucks. Bad things happen at once, it seems like. Hope you're blessed with a streak of good luck in February!

I dropped close to $4grand on my vehicle over the past 3 months. But that was all planned/fun stuff.

Only February? I'd say all year.

Once cars start breaking down this much, your better off shooting it and getting another they just become a money pit.

Car's run fine for the last 5 years. January's just been a hell pit of problems, and not just the car. Everything around me seems to be crumbling for some reason.

Guess Entropy finally woke up from her nap and she's grumpy.

3) Master Break Cylinder -- $135 installed.

Cheaper than expected, but still outside my budget.
