    Another Honda for this old fart

    At the end of the month, I will be getting a new(er) Honda twin. I'm gonna call her 'Number 7' since she's my seventh Honda. It's a 1985 VT1100C, a V-twin. I'll post pics when it gets here. I'll probably thin the herd a bit as I'm running out of space. Happy Easter, everyone. Have a good one, Stay safe. Dan

    1981 CM400T (in surgery receiving transplant)
    1982 CM450 (donor engine for 81)
    1982 CB450 (parts bike)
    1985 VT1100C (rider)

    Past rides: Vincents, Triumph, BSA's, Suzuki's, Twingle, Corgy, others.

    Remember, today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday.
    My chest fell, but, fortunately, my belt caught it.
    I don't know everything, nor, have I met the one who does.

    Looking forward to pictures, Dan... and to see what you do to move the pegs and controls to a more appropriate location for guys like us

    I was talking to Steve today and realized that I hadn't posted anything about my new(er) Honda coming at the end of the month. I will certainly post pics.

    Happy Easter, Dan. I guess we can forgive the lack of pics for the time being, being Easter and all. But that only gets you another 40 days or so.

    Enjoy the holiday.

    Congrats Dan. Now you can really keep up with the boys on those longer trips!!
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

    You know Dan that's getting pretty close to a Lazyboy with a motor.
