Re: OT - Proud new papa of a motorcycle
In2Mud....it is a CB550Four. Its a deep maroon almost purple color. So far it hasn't really given me any problems. I did have to replace the battery since the one in there had sat for a few years without being charged. I got the throttle adjusted correctly so that it doesn't die when I'm off the gas and it doesn't idle too fast.
I still don't have plates for it yet though, so I can't take it out of my neighborhood in fear of being stopped by the coppers. I'm already starting to like it more than my CJ. I suppose thats because it hasn't let me down yet and everything seems to work.
I'll try and get some photo's when I can. Its really in great shape. All of the original stickers are still on it, including the one on the gas tank that says "Preserve nature...wear a helmet".
