|My motorcycle is a 1984 Honda CM 450E, she is an oldie, but a goodie! I have dubbed her Lucy.|
Thursday night Motorcycle Man and I went to look at a bike. I knew from the moment I saw it,she belonged to me. I called her Lucy, it just popped into my head. I am still not flat footing completely, but it is a comfortable sit. I decided that I wasn't going to buy new and was going to find an inexpensive starter bike. I can always up-grade when I have been riding for a bit and am comfortable. She has a ding on her tank and a few scratches here and there, but it adds to the Princess Road Warrior persona, after all you can't look tough in a pink jacket. I might even decide to restore her to her original glory, she is a very nice smooth riding bike. I had her out in the parkinglot and was working on shifting and stopping. I got her up to second gear and downshifted smoothly. She is a completely different ride than my scoot Vixen. I have to say there is a huge gap between 50 cc and 450cc, but I am managing pretty well. So my journey continues and I am looking forward to doing my Novice class and traffic course.
Motorcycle Man is already planning some refurb projects on Lucy and he was out there detailing her today and making sure I have a safe ride. Thank you Motorcycle Man you are the best!
