Hmmm I didn't realize. Well, if anyone doesn't want to go that far north they can can come south and have a little fun for the day
We can always do it again at a later date if no one wants to come down, well play by ear. :)

glad i'm not the only one that rides a dualsport in charity poker runs.

its fun to jump over the curbs and sidewalks instead of backing up like the big dogs...

If you added a motorcycle to your stable today, please raise your hands.

Without further adieu...





1993 Honda Nighthawk 750. Came with two windshields, Hondaline backrest, and soft saddlebags. I'm gonna get the legal stuff taken care of today and ride it down to the Brewhouse this evening.

Sweet! My wife has been wanting one of those & when the missuz wants a motorcycle.... I am gentleman enough to buy one "for her" ..... once I scrape the cash together.

Nice choice for a commuter.

Best thing is, it has hydraulic lifters!

Just remember to use 10-40 oil in it, the lifters don't like 20-50.

And if you wanna get froggy in the twistys...you might wish for dual discs and better fork springs.

A 600 F2 or F3 set of forks would slide right into the yokes on a Nighthawk.
