On Labor Day weekend, I decided to drive her to a friends kids birthday party about 3 miles from my home. As I left the bbq, my friends stood by cheering me on, all oo-ing and ah-ing over how cool me and my bike were. As I drove off, I sped up the windy arroyo road towards home. As I rounded a mean blind curve, suddenly the clutch went slack in my hand, and she sputtered to a stop. I managed to get her to the side of the road easily, but realized quickly I was in a bad spot, on the back side of that mean blind curve. I'd had the bike not even a week, so I hadn't yet upgraded my AAA service to include flatbed tow for my bike. I called a few friends for help... one did come through. But as I sat there waiting for the tow, every single one of my friends I'd just finished impressing drove past. All of them rolled up in their Lexus' and BMW's asking if they could help... "Not unless you can move that baby seat and throw this baby in the back." Needless to say, they all drove on with a wave and a wish of good luck. "Hey!" I yelled..."it's a classic!" two and a half hours later... my tow arrived.
Jeremy and the guys at VintageHondaCB were right on top of it. In only a couple of hours they had figured out the problem (actuator) and fixed her up like new.
Honestly, I can't get enough of her. For those of you ladies out there who have ever considered getting your own bike... I highly recommend it. I'm looking forward to all of my future adventures!
