About

When I was 17, I decided I wanted to learn how to ride motorcycles. For my first bike, I wanted something cheap and simple to learn on. The Honda was good for both. I also learned that classic motorcycle repairs are expensive. I loved that bike but after I had let it sit for a season, it would never start for me again. I ended up selling it for almost as much as I'd paid for it, so alls well ends well. I do miss it though.
