Looks SWEET, Fangar!

I don't think I could ever ride a bike w/ apehangers' though. Especially at slower speeds.
Hi max your right, hondas are the most bullet proof vehicles on the planet, I had a 650 honda, and i could not wear it out, and a 175 honda enduro, and a 250 cr not to mention a 125 cr honda and now a honda shadow 600 shadow, they just last for ever, now i have a 2006 honda accord, and I think it will out last me take care, Chellie

I was in your shoes about 15 years ago. Now my kids are all teenagers and we got the bike back in our lives. Its hard to make time with little feet running around, I know!

You will be back in the saddle again, play the family part and enjoy that....after awhile you can have your fun.

Hey that's the wife's vehicle lol. She lets me drive it and wash it
once in awhile

Yep my kids are teens and don't require as much time as they used to so the bike is a nice escape for the wife and I.

I hear that. Mine are still small (4 and 6). If I didn't ride to work, I wouldn't ride much at all.

I want to get a motorbike licence when I'm older
just so I can wear a full leather outfit with a kool helmet
apparently, I'll have to ride a small scooter first... then move up to the 'beasts'
A nice fast bike that can get me to the front of a packed freeway in seconds

You're right, airmail, I think he may adjust his thinking after being dumped on his butt off the scooter a few times. Nothing like a few hamburgers to make a kid realise that that he isn't quite invincible (rude shock!).

I see these guys howling past our place at 100mph or more, some of them ending up in the pasture where the highway turns. I don't call 911, I let them struggle back to the road for help...
