The helix is such a fine motorcycle

TC james.yu your helix is very nice . My experience with helix's is that they run like sewing machines. Here is my 1986. I was sure pleased with the 75 mile trip I took on the 4th of July to a parade in Waynesville Ohio.



Keep those Helix pics coming.
I wonder how many Helix have been made by Honda? does anyone Know?

All of them, I'd guess.


Here's my brother screwing around on his new scoot. At $300, I practically stole it from a guy on Craigslist. It's an '03 Kymco Cobra Racer. Derestriction in progress.



"Uhh, my scooter won't start. Help!" (He hit the kill switch. D'oh!)















Due to his Asperger syndrome, he tends to get lost in his thoughts and be a little absent minded. I put him in the brightest vest I could find and I'm trying to teach him to be a vigilant rider.

I was surprised, too. I have a bunch of a friends who find screaming deals on vehicles, but it never seems to happen to me. 'Bout damned time!

The only bummer is, the guy who sold it to me never bothered to transfer the title. He got it from an insurance company which had totalled it (plastics are scratched up ), wrote his name on the title, and never bothered to turn it in. Now I've got to figure out a way to transfer it... I suspect I'll be applying for a duplicate/lost title.

We were in CO on Guzzis and I ran into this dude south of Leadville. He has Ohio plates but said he had ridden out from Kentucky on his Stella:

Wow. I would love to do something like that but there is no way I could last much more that 100 miles on my Stella seat.
