Me, well I saved like a bastard. being my mum and dad split up, my dad got me the RS insted of giving me money for a car when I was 17, kind of a start off thing to help, then I just kept doing odd bits and bobs getting EMA, and my mum gave me some money to go towards the VFR to, and the CBR I borrowed money to buy that.

Really you just need to work. Spend your money wisely.
I am happy to say my parents have never bought me a car or a bike.

So far I have owned 4 motorcycles and 6 cars/trucks

Work.

To be honest my mum and dad (well dad really) have being a massive help. They've never bought me a bike, as such.
There's a way me and my dad work it. Basically i'll put up as much money for the bike as i can, my dad will lend me the rest. We'll then get a book, note down how much i owe and i'll pay him off bit by bit each time i get paid. I give him as much as i can as i hate owing. otheriwse i wouldn't be able to afford.

Watching what you spend helps aswell. Stuff like dinner at work, food at night etc etc.
You don't realise but it soon adds up. Sometimes i'll spend maybe 6 a day on food at work. Thats (*calculator comes out LOL*)................ 30! Then when i'm out with mates we'll go KFC, maccy's or whatever sometimes like 3 times a week!! at a skinny diver a time thats 15!
So already 45 have gone on food. Thats a shit load of money. So i've pretty mcuh stopped buying food at work and taking my own from home and i've stopped eating out at night aswell.
Saying that at least drink is cheap. I think i got pissed on about 15 on saturday (bought from tesco)
