I just read the intro by Amy and talking about her dad who has been riding for 30+ years. My guess is he and I are about the same age . Amy, if all goes as planned, we will move to Asheville in the next few months. Where in NC are you (area – not address!)?
I am currently without a bike because I live outside NYC, so it’s impractical to still own one. My last bike (three years ago) was a Kawasaki Vulcan LTD 500. I got rid of it when my commute to NYC began. I was too tired to ride it and being tired on a bike do not go together.
My life began on a Hondamatic 90cc. I took my motorcycle test on it when I was about 25 years old. I quickly moved to a Honda 250CM but sold it quickly to buy a Honda 650 Nighthawk because the 250 didn’t have enough power.
My youngest sister is currently looking at bikes. Have any of you had experience buying from eBay? She’s looking there and on Craigslist. I can advice her about bikes but I don’t know how eBay bike purchases are (she told me eBay will protect the buyer from fraud if there are problems with the transaction and I have my concerns).
