Just a newbie to this site. I have been riding for almost 25 years, only 34 now, on and off. Started off on a Honda 80. from there moved to a Honda 125 dirt bike and rode local tracks. Then 175 trail bike. Had a bad wreck, off road, on a 650 liquid cooled dual sport and got out of it for 10 years. Bought a brand new 2012 Honda CBR 250 in 2012, traded off in Sept '14 for the Classic. Was an active member on the 250 forum for almost 2 years.
I love it so far. The guy who had it before me put a lot of aftermarket stuff on it. Touring seat, windshield, saddle bags, luggage rack, foot boards, grips. I replaced the 17” windshield to a 21” since I am 6'4” and installed a white underglow kit. MPG could be better but after not having any roll off power that is to be expected. I do miss the fun of my little “sport” bike but the classic is a better fit for me and the whole family. They all ride with me from time to time, the wife to the 5 year old.
Sounds like a sweet ride! Decked out, too. Post some pics when you get a chance.
Yeah, going from a sport bike to a cruiser is a change, but better for the little ones for sure. If you ever get down to Houston, hit me up. Good riding north of town.
