My "own" first bike was a '79 Honda CX500 Deluxe. (My husband and I shared an '82 Suzuki GS450L to learn on). The Honda was purchased from a friend, and it was in PRISTINE condition.

I came around one blind turn, to encounter an SUV completely in my lane. (And it's not even a narrow road). Heed the advice "LOOK WHERE ...
