We are a motoing family and Scooterpie Jr recently turned 16. We have been patiently looking for a small bike and we happened upon this little green Monsta the other day. It's a 1984 Honda CM250, it is the perfect starter bike. My first bike Lucy was an '84 CM450e and I loved that bike. This little guy has been over the road a bit, but it's in pretty good shape and was a decent price. I think it's a good start for a newb. (If she ever decides to part with it momma is going to cafe it)
I am still trying to figure out where the time went and she was just learning how to ride a tricycle.
We thought about letting her ride my little scoot, but decided we wanted her to learn to shift and have a higher profile in traffic and also a little more engine pep to deal with daily traffic when she gets to that point.
So this brings us to studying for the learner's licence, taking a novice course and traffic course and graduated licensing. It also comes with a list of rules and restrictions and practicing safe motorcycling habits. For her it is going to be ATGATT and there is no leeway on this particular rule.
So the adventure begins again in a new phase, a bigger phase, one I am not completely ready for, but as with all little things they do stretch, grow and eventually start edging towards leaving the nest.
