The Hurricane

Here's a photo of my Hurricane. It's an 87 and has about 34000 miles on it. It isn't pretty but it runs and is fun to ride. I've put a total of 250 miles or so since I bought it but that is changing quickly as I got everything on the bike that needed to be done before it became a daily rider.

And so she goes.

I sold the little Ninja last night, and a number of mixed feelings accompanied the transaction. I sold her to a man who will take care of it and will use it, so that's a plus. I just hate to see a bike go that I put so much time and effort into enjoying and caring for. I had barely put 200 miles on the bike since November, though, so it was apparent that it was time to move on. More stories from the road will follow this year on this blog. I am now over 1800 miles into breaking in my new VFR800 Interceptor, and I have time off work already scheduled to start rolling back serious miles and photoblogging the experiences.

Currently in the garage:
New-in-2009 2007 Honda VFR800 Interceptor 25th Anniversary w/ABS
1999 Triumph 955i Sprint ST (long-term loan)
1998 Suzuki Bandit 1200S
and Ray's 1987 Honda Hurricane

The riding season of '09 is young. Stay tuned.

Ray is right.

I just can't seem to let go of the bike that has been with me through 5300 miles in one short summer. There is a guy coming to look at it this week, but I'm half hoping that he doesn't buy it. :)

More adventures to come. Stay tuned.

New bikes

Many things have changed.  I sold the Ninja and bought an 87 Honda Hurricane 600.   I haven't rode it much but I know it's going to be a bike that I will have a lot of fun on.  It is currently in Casey's garage awaiting a new exhaust can and choke cable.  Casey went and got an anniversary Honda VFR800 in the Red, White and Blue paint to go along with his Bandit 1200s.  Casey can't seem to give up the 250 Ninja and still has it as part of his stable.
