older motorcycle,new project
 
I finally made the leap ,took the course and bought a motorcycle,a nice 86 Honda rebel 450.It's not the newest/fastest/greatest but I got a great deal ($800.00)on it and after driving it am impressed with it.Started right up and drove home very smooth and quiet.

All was well till the other day,no I didn't have an accident while moving anyway.I was backing it up and didn't notice how close I had gotten to the back porch and snapped the turn signal off,breaking the lense,bulb and stud.

So here is what the bike looks like now.Not bad,just miffed.:upeyes:

That's what I call a gas and oil change kind of bike. Great to start on for sure.

You did well. Congrats.

Very nice!!


I am fairly new rider, my third year. Have you noticed a much greater awareness of what is around when you are just driving your car?


I started out with a 98 Valkyrie.

That's the lure that no cage can overcome.
