Thanks. I wish I still had it. I would really prefer the mid to late 80's Honda Rebel. We referred to those as a poor mans Harley. The new ones look like crap.
That was a rather personal post you made there, but I can say you're not alone in that respect...Pissed off at/over a woman and had the speedometer pegged at 120mph
LMAOlived to suffer another day.
For sure....but I was young and stupid. But, I did learn from it.That was a rather personal post you made there,

Now that's just good TV right there.....I tell you what! Said in a southern accent.Turns out one cannot manouvre a motorcycle in the air as easily as one can a bicycle..

Speaking of bike wrecks I am so sorry this happened to you. I reside near a major highway and just last week a motorcycle with a true biker was attempting to manipulate a curve and tragically wrecked into a tree near our local bar. My husband and I as well as a few other people responded at the scene in attempts to save his life but he sadly expired before any of us had a chance to save him. I could tell he passed away because of the color of his skin and the way his body hit the ground after we made attempts to turn him over as I and another women was a former Registered Nurse attempted chest compressions and performed CPR while waiting for emergency crews to arrive.I just found this thread....holy crap!
Here's my first every powered 2 wheel means of transportation. A Jawa moped at 18. I put 200 miles on it the first day!

Then at age 21 I picked this up for $800. A 1988 Honda NightHawk 450.

My next move was to a Harley but sadly that never happened. I wrecked this bike on a deadmans curve a few years later. Pissed off at/over a woman and had the speedometer pegged at 120mph and I ended up in a ditch. I don't know how I survived the wreck. I did and spent 3 days in the hospital with 3 broke ribs a broke nose and road rash on left shoulder and butt cheek. The bike was unrecognizable, my helmet was split from front to back. To this day I still have asphalt that makes it way to the surface of my skin. Damn I loved to ride.
Then I got married and had kids and the wife would never allow me to get another bike. And NO, my wife was not the woman mentioned above at the time I wrecked my Honda.
Don't be...but it is appreciated. That accident was a blessing in disguise....turns out that girl I was seeing/dating/engaged to was stepping out on me. It's what led me to my wife of 28 years of marriage and 4 beautiful kids, 3 girls and my boy. I have no complaints. Although I do miss riding. Even if I could get a bike now....my medical condition wont allow it. Which sucks.....I can't drive, ride my bicycle for exercise, ride a motor cycle. My eyes are so bad now.I am so sorry this happened to you
