Wish us luck

Well it's official, I have purchased this little beaut for the wife. 953 original miles and a 3 bike trailer for the princely sum of $750! She really wants to ride on the street and I feel this is a perfect little learner bike. I'll eventually step her up to a Ninja 250 but this will be fine for now.

I purchased her a Honda XR80 a couple of years ago to do the family trail riding deal and she has become reasonably proficient in her off road riding skills so onto the next level we go. Now suffice to say I am still extremely nervous about her riding so she will be taking the MSF course and I will have her doing countless hours of parking lot riding before I let her set foot on a public road.

Not the actual pics of the bike as I have yet to pick it up but exactly the same minus the sissy bar and luggage rack

Will have to post some pics when I pick it up.

The link doesnt' work but I'm assuming it's a 1982 Honda Rebel 250. A great learner bike. Feels like you're sitting on the ground, it's so low. Have fun.

I may have to buy her the new kitchen sooner than expected to talk her into that.

Congrats on the purchase. It's always great to hear about a family that rides together. I believe it makes us stronger.

Yeah it sometimes can, although I would not trust any of mine near me on two wheels
