    Cool Saying goodbye after 5.71 years.

    Hello dear fellow owners of the NC7 series.
    After many moons (2086 days to be exact), I have done the inevitable.
    She is now gone from her normal sleeping space in the garage. She is in a "better" place.
    In her place, I have a brand new BMW GS Adventure Triple Black (all options included, life's short).

    I want to say a special goodbye to the Honda as she put me through many hours of happy riding (therefore my avatar name here).
    I will NOT miss her because in her final year with me, she has had a broken Tensioner, intermittent charging problems and basically "too little" power after ridden the AT and the GS.
    (For many riders here, I can agree with you that you have enough power from her. Lets leave it at that).

    So good bye Honda. Thanks for all the good times.

    I will still come around to this campfire (for the many who know me) and I wish you a nice day and more happy riding.

    In your photo, you certainly look happy with your new BMW, Joe!

    Ride on, and report back from time to time, even on April 1 if you like. We're ready for you.

    How how will we have happy holidays with out Happy. No more crazy, crazies. If it was April fouls day, I would not even believe this post. HAPPY TRAILS TO HAPPY......
    Why not seize the pleasure at once? -- How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, and foolish planning? Just do it. Shut the frunk up and Ride !!!!!!!!!!
