You are such a great rider! I rememeber that time we were riding up a steep hill and you needed to change direction, you did a quick smooth U-turn on that narrow and hilly road like it was nothing, with me on the back as a pillion.

I think a lot of women don't take the larger cc test because they don't feel they can pass the part of the test where they have to lift a comparable CC bike off the ground.Hondagirl wrote:Haha maybe I was trying to impress you . It is true though that the test here is much stricter, and its also true we see so few either women riders or larger bikes on the road here since the 'over 400cc' test is even harder than the middle cc test I took.

This is a 1990 with a 2-gallon peanut tank and buckhorn bars. I'd heard about the top-heavy thing with Sportys, but this one doesn't really feel very top heavy to me. The buckhorn bars take a little getting used to though. All in all it handles a lot better than I expected. (Now getting it stopped on the other hand....)Nalian wrote:The sporty is pretty top-heavy
