My dad and I were emailing back and forth about the first motorcycle I rode – I thought it was a Honda 175 Enduro of some sort but he keeps telling me it’s a Honda Trail 80, which looks too small (in my memory). Anyway, I thought I would share part of the rather amusing conversation in hopes it might bring back fond “first motorcycle” memories for you:
No I’m talking about the one on Sedgehill Drive that I learned to ride on in about 1970, the one that was in the garage and nearly rode through the chicken fence cause I got the brake and clutch mixed up.
It was a Honda trail 80 that you rode mostly. remember the darn thing wouldn’t start unless the battery was charged even tho it was a kick start>:-o.
once we got that problem figured out, and you finally realized it would quit when it ran outta gas :-[, you used to sneak it off and push it back half the time. But what does a parent know 🙂
