Hello, my name is Frank and I ride in western Washington state, USA. I am happy to belong here with other motorcycle enthusiasts and wish to share experiences and mechanical knowledge.

My current ride is a 1975 CL360 K1 Scrambler in excellent survivor original condition purchased in 2017 with 10,000 miles. It was nearly complete and mostly functional, needing a few fixes such as tachometer and carb tuning. Its only newer parts are the upholstered seat and some hidden electronics such as regulator/rectifier, electronic ignition, and of course the tires. I am in possession of an original paper Owner's Manual. My favorite maintenance manual is the Glenn's Honda from 1972.

I am a casual rider who will go short distances such as commuting to work or on short scenic rides. I never ride at high speed above 65 mph as this model bike is really not built for stability at higher speeds.

My experiences with motorcycles started in 1986 with a 1982 NC50 moped. It had a two-stroke little 49cc motor that topped out around 25 mph. I found it would go as high as 35 mph if I shut off the fuel and let it begin to run lean. Around 1990 I started to collect small motorbikes, and began to do repair work for extra money. I worked on many smaller and older model Hondas, some of which are in my photo gallery below. At one time I owned maybe five in riding condition and a few for parts. All were later sold or traded away when it came time to be married and I had no space to store so many bikes.

A sampling of former motorcycles I rode is in this album. They include these models: 1970 CT70 (orange), 1971 SL350 (red), 1971 CT70 (red), 1972 CB350 (green), 1972 CB450 (brown), 1972 SL125 (silver), 1972 XL100 (red), 1974 CL125 (red), 1979 Suzuki RM80 two-stroke, 1982 NC50 moped two-stroke, and a scattering of parts bikes including a CL350 and CL360.
