That is correct! A bike will smoke a car on a track with lots of twisties.

I cruise on occasion. I would just ride, where ever the wind takes me. Especially on a warm sunnie day!

Yes, I work on my bike, the simple stuff like; oil & filter changes, brakes and lines, fluid changes, etc... I am working on my carbs. Want to get them done before Spring.

My bike is mainly white with blue, red and black. I have a Corbin Solo seat. Plus, my bike has been modified with ignition advance, jet kit & V & H pipe and oval exhaust.

Oh, yeah, Spring! Going to be good...

Gordon

I bought the bike new in 1993. I wanted that bike and colour scheme. So, I will hold on to it a little bit longer. Besides, to replace with a bike the same size engine, now-a-days, would be too expensive.

Did you just buy your bike? You did mention that it would be your first riding season? You must be excited. Did you take a riding course? I took a refresher course last year with my GF as she rides a Vespa. Her first scooter. Boy, the scooter is fun! Nothing compared to my CBR, though. Her Vespa is only 150cc with a top speed of 100km. It starts to vibrate after 100km. The engine is screaming, too!

Yeah, I am tired of winter already... come on Spring!

First year. That is great! I remember my first year, lots of fun and excitement. One word of advice, if I may, be aware of your limitations on your bike & keep a space buffer all around you.

The Vespa is extremely economical on gas.

It is hard to decide to ride my bike or my 330i ZHP. What a decision, eh?

That's Great!

We should set up a Max bike meet in the Spring. I am sure there would be other riders on the board?
