    In 1986 I bought a brand new Honda Reflex, street-legal 200cc four-stroke play bike, for $900. To this day, I wish I'd taken better care of it. I've had many bikes, but that little Honda was my all-time favorite.

    I would gladly shed my DR350 in an even trade for a good one... :cry

    Obviously YMMV... :norton

    If you were as inept as I on a bike, you probably would have been thrilled...

    I just need to learn to be happy with what I got. If guys on heavy beamers can go crazy places why can't my Versys. It may not be the best for the situation but its paid for and in my garage already.

    When I was a kid in the late 70's, my neighbor had a green one just like that. He also had a early z50 and a bronze CT 70... all were in mint condition. I had my Bronco pull start mini-bike (a green one like this http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_tO0z-CRfmXA/S93fuQLuXVI/AAAAAAAAApg/HCngi4HFsrE/s1600/bronco.jpg) and my brother had a blue 1970 CT 70... I always lusted after the bikes in his stable. I thought the Suzuki RV125 looked like big Honda CT 70... I like them. Here's one for sale in Greenwood: http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/mcy/3455700750.html

    Very nice, I need to switch out the clipless pedals on my Jamis Nova. I've got some meaty 35's on there now I'm dying to try in the snow.
