    That'll teach her not to leave her purse size rocks in the middle of the trail.

    Hope no one was hurt.

    The Summer is probably coming to an end here in few weeks but this is how Viivi's Summer started in April. She said she's got 23 000 kms sofar this Summer, probably will be some more at the end of the Summer.

    What is it? The only thing that looked familiar was that the tank reminds me of a Ninja 250.

    It's a Honda CB 500 -02. About 160 000 kms of which she has ridden 100 000+ in 4-5 years.

    I have 65k miles on my 2010 Interstate. It's been a good bike. Not many miles on it lately, been riding my FJR.

    For awhile we had pretty close to the same bikes as you guys. I rode the Interstate and my wife had a Honda Shadow Spirit.

    Hard to beat a Honda for reliability.

    My Honda CBF1000 was the least reliable bike I've ever owned, and my current bikes are a Moto Guzzi and a Ural so you know the Honda had problems.

    Wow, that does sound bad. We have been lucky with Hondas. She traded the trouble free Shadow for an Indian Scout. It's been nothing but trouble.
    I guess there are lemons with every brand.

    The CBF1000s are built in Honda’s Italian factory so I figured it was just the Italians way of sabotaging Honda. It worked cause I’ve been enjoying my Griso for the past 6 years.

    My CBF needed a stator $550, then a month later a fuel pump $750, plus had to adjust 7 of the valves at first inspection.

    We started riding on 2 Shadows and they were reliable. And to keep this on topic...

    The TUX is a great little bike, but not quick enough for the highway. Wife had one for a while but has moved up to a Yamaha R3 - that one goes!

    Rode over to Marion, NC to the Bigfoot festival today.

    Some dude welded this beast up, each individual “hair”.
    Ran into some “pea soup” fog as she called it on the BRP on the way home.

    It did clear up eventually, I thought this overlook name was fitting seeing as I have one.

    I’d never ridden there. She gave me the tour on the ‘still being arrowed’ enduro course. Much of such, isn’t ridden at all for the rest of the yr.

    Dunno how big, but I’ve heard 3000+ acres plus some adjacent FS land that they have permission to use for the event only. Rode that as well. Very tight singletrack many times. Especially for a race course.
