Way To Go Dad!

Davo-55,
I would have felt in a Natural High to get such a fine set of wheels when I was 15. Way to go! My kids all began snowmobiling at 12 and driving an old blue jeep when they where 15. I had my first Honda 50 when i was in High school.

Me too windburn. When I was 16 two of my pals had bikes, one had a 100 cc Kawasaki, the other had a 100 cc Honda. I wanted to ride with them so badly. I did aquire a Honda 350 in my senior year, but by then the other two guys had moved on. I hope my boy enjoys it, it IS pretty neat.

My work gives us the day before Thanksgiving off as a holiday

Every year I enjoy getting up late after the boyfriend has left for his work to figure out where I'll ride. I headed down into the Arcadia Management Area near the CT border and into one of the many rural parts of Rhode Island. First time riding Franz Biberkopf (my Buddy 150) on the schweet dirt roads. While they're more fun on my motard, it was an awesome ride today. I was completely and utterly alone...in the woods, in the cold, with my own thoughts. Just what I needed.

Blitzkrieg Trail


Breakheart Pond Trail (even though I had go around a gate, this is a legal trail for motobikes)

Very nice scooter - I've always wanted to find one of those. Looks like you have been restoring it. Just curious - how fast does it go?

Thank you, I have been working on it off and on since 1971, as these things can't be rushed. I did most of the body and paint work when I was 14/15 years old, though I did final paint 12 years ago and yes in the spirit of my youth I painted it out of spray cans. As far as how fast, with the 4 HP engine, on a good day and a hefty dose of fearlessness it will run about 45 MPH. But at that speed the citizens could never soak it the coolness of it all.

Wow that is a long term project! I should not talk though, I spent years restoring a 1966 Solex that is finally done thanks to E-Bay and parts from at least 10 countries. Like most restoration projects, lots of things slow the process down - parts, life, kids, wives, work...
