:clap: Great ride Paul.
Getting warmer here. Up to 36F today, shouldn't be long now and I will be out riding again
My son just bought a new bike and picked it up on Saturday, a Honda 1000 Africa. I don't think I will be able to ride it though as it is a very tall bike.
..after a lifetime of riding bikes from the distant past with their low seat heights, low petrol tanks, regular handlebars, and regular footpegs, it was a wake-up call with the first of my modern Japanese sports bikes, (Honda XBR 500G and Honda CBR 600FM) with their high seats, massive petrol tanks, and clip-on handle-bars and footpegs!
Falling over on my recent Honda CB 500RR (still got it) whilst stationary at a road junction, unable to reach the ground properly with my feet, finally convinced me that all this "tip-toeing stuff" was dangerous, I decided to ride "Cruiser" Motorcycles from now on!...peanut petrol tanks and low seats....and both my feet firmly planted on the ground!...Much more secure!
The Honda Africa Twin (one of my Sons had one a few years ago) is a wonderful long-distance touring bike, like the latest BMW's, but all the tiptoeing and peering over the massive fuel tanks is no longer a joy for me!
26-inch seat height, 2.5-gallon peanut tanks, Confederate bandana and shades, is the way to go for me, at 5 feet 6 inches height and weighing a mere 154 LBS...
The weather here is cool and very wet at the moment! The garden vegetation loves it, but I'm not too happy about it!....
More rides coming up!
