My mom found a Honda Rebel 250 on Craigslist and made my dad go to Denver to look at it. This is such a strange thing for both he and I because we were the ones having to drag her to the MSF course and now she's been foaming at the mouth to find herself a bike. She kept saying after the course, "I can't believe I passed!"
The Rebel came home with Dad...its an '86 with 1650 miles on it, looks like it came off the showroom floor so she's scared to death she's gonna drop it. He got it for $1100...it had been in the guy's garage for a year and a half and never been ridden since he bought it. It fired right up though. Mom was sitting on it in the back of the truck before my dad had a chance to unload it, apparently she was standing in the middle of the road looking for his truck. Dad's freaked cuz she's NEVER looked down the road for either of us LOL
Anyways, I've been told that I MAY possibly ride it LOL....I'm 20 BTW....and so now I'm bike shopping even more. I want a Buell Blast, which was brought home to me even more now that I've sat on her bike and it feels way too small for me. I'm only an inch taller than her but I must have a longer inseam because I can handle a much bigger bike. Dad had me sitting on a 750 at a dealership that I could hold up and keep my feet flat with no probs. Still holding out for the Buell tho....
Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself a little more to you all, and let you know that the bike bug has bitten our family.
