Bought my first motorbike

Post#1 » Mon Jun 01, 2015 9:56 pm

It's a 2004 Honda VT250 Spada. I paid $1300 AUD for it and the only problem aside from a few scrapes on the right (someone has dropped it I assume) is the battery. It's my first vehicle that's roadworthy, so I'm looking forward to causing trouble on the road.

Very nice bike. Congrats.

But, please be careful. Nurses refer to motorcycle drivers as organ donors.

I've been riding most of my life so to be riding on the road is like a dream haha.

Don't worry Flexo I've been in enough accidents to be careful. I've had my calf muscle get torn out and kneecap shattered. My old teacher gave me some good advice, "Ride like everyone's out to kill you" Don't get me wrong I'm nervous because I've never driven on the road before even in a car so it's a completely new experience.

Damn, I was expecting one of those Nazi motorcycles with a sidecar, but that's a nice ride. Remember to scare every granny in your neighborhood, by having a really scare figure at the back of your jacket.

In my town there's so many actual bikie gangs that I think it would be wayyyy to dangerous to put a logo on my back haha don't want to be seen as a rival gang.

I actually saw a US WWII bike and sidecar on the highway this weekend while I was out for a ride.

Congrats on joining the MC rider community. My first was a '83 Suzuki GS 650. My current is a `04 BMW R1200RT. I've never been bored of riding the bike. Be safe, do what you like and like what you do.

Congrats on the two wheels, remember to keep an eye out for gravel on the hard top. It's what gets people in bad situations up here.

Some day I will have a motorcycle, prob after the devorce haha.

I had a motorcycle before my first child was born. And then again after my divorce. 50mpg helps when your on food stamps because most of your pay goes to child support.
Oops I think I just made the joke a little to real. I still laughed.
