Ridin’ For Harambe, Part 15

Well, what do we have here. It’s clearly a chick on a bike, right? Just a little (alright, you Aspies, a lot) younger than what you normally see.

What’s the bike?

Why, it’s a CB1100 Standard, very similar to the one on which I’ve put 7,100 miles in the past year! Don writes, “I’d been leaning toward the CB but it was your review that finally got me to purchase one. I drove an old CB550 back in the early 80’s and this is much better. The second shot is my granddaughter. My wife threatened holy hell if I ever put her on the bike, but what she don’t know …”

Maybe a little bit of early-childhood motorcycling will inoculate her against the day, fifteen years from now, when my son comes riding through town on his dad’s old Honda CB. You never know!

    Wouldn’t that be the dream? A ton of self-driving cars that won’t merge into your son while he rides something made of metal and that burns liquified, condensed dinosaurs. It brings a tear to my eye that the music stopped on air-cooled, oil-cooled inline 4 bikes. The best we can do is keep the flame burning and pass the torch.

    No it didn’t .

    I don’t like riding ’em but there’s still plenty out there doing Yeoman Duty and tearing up the Canyons .

    I have a 1976 Honda CB400F languishing in my back yard .
