In the dark behind the small 6v lighted patch on road, fence-posts and trees, it could have be anywhere. I still daydream at night, in fog, that I am anywhere.
A CT90 is where I started too, in '66 on the family farm. The old man got it for the farm and the odd run into town. That transfer case was handy..... but I guess few here would know what you are on about!

Actually, I haven't moved on much. My present ride is a more recent incarnation of the Cub, a 1997 Honda Dream (100 cc, with 208,000 km on the odometer). Living on an island 50 km long by 20 km wide, it is all the bike I need for now.

Keep it coming, Papa...... enjoying the pictures and the comments.
