On a ride
At first I thought, "No, not really", have been able to make the emotional disconnect with most. But there is one I still kinda wish I had tucked away somewhere. This '02 Buell Cyclone M2...
88- nice avatar by the way :rofl:
I am really having a difficult time dealing with getting rid of my Huffy. It had streamers and a pink seat... Any suggestions.
(hehehe...on the serious note...this is my first bike, and I already have emotional attachment to it. I can't imagine someone else having my bike, and not knowing how the new person takes care of it...:bat )
Nice you took pics of it then! It reminds me of my first "new" bike, an '82 Honda V45 Sabre. My wife and I (pre-kids) would ride all over Michigan on it. And you're right -- these bikes could fly! How about that, > 25 years ago.Bought new for $4,500. Great bike....fast, reliable, and a ton of fun. Not to mention all the great memories. I'm sure it could give my V-Rod a good run.
Before and after pics. Set it up for some long haul touring....and did. Notice the trailer hitch? Not common in 1980.
Dave, not to increase the angst level, but that is one sweet bike. You're right, many now rave about the bike and how well it handles... especially in the wind. Bet that SE version would fly!Just one that I regretted selling.... a 2000 Screamin Eagle Road Glide.
Not too many Road Glides around back then, lots of riding buddies joked a lot about the "halloween pumpkin" paint job and the "Jap fairing with 2 headlights", but it was one fast Harley !
Road Glides are a lot more accepted these days, now a lot of riders realize what great handling bikes they really are.
