Cool Recruited another one ... new rider!

Yesterday my friend, Tony, and I went to look at a starter bike that he found on CraigsList. It's a '91 Honda Nighthawk 750. After some negotiating, he got it for $820. What a GREAT starter bike. Let the lessons begin!

Re: Recruited another one ... new rider!

The bike looks to be in great shape, and we all know that smile . . .

But you really should get him heading in the right direction straight off. Maybe introduce him to this as a starting point . . .

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Yeah, probably should get him to watch that. AND, buy him a pair of a$$-less chaps and a Wild Hogs jacket.
