with my tax return i will?

Living in the city has its challenges, I have been trying to only drive the car to and from mountain bike destination. That is why I want one of these:

The Kona Ute. It could solve a few difficulties that I have with some small modifications. Bikehugger likes em and has the modifications that I would add, a stoker stem and pegs. Why you ask? My girlfriend is not as motivated as I to ride. She and I are different speeds, and I ride a whole lot more. This leads to different decisions being made in traffic, and I will ride any where. Distance will at times prevent her from getting on the bike. This way she could just sit back and enjoy the ride. Getting groceries made simple. Instead of packing them on my back, having to carefully pack my messenger bag and then having to do damage control when boxes get crushed, yogurt goes smush. Fruit and vegetables are always a bit of a challenge. While I will admit that it all can be done, the above vehicle would certainly make it all a lot more convenient. The price at $799 is not cost prohibitive other than the fact that I need to get rid of credit card debt and pay some other bills. It all comes down to priorities. Could that money be better spent? Possibly, if bills are better. Could this be an amazing purchase? yes. More thought is needed. This is just the beginning.
