Everyone who rides knows that at some time you just have to recognize that your riding days are done. That’s just reality. I’m not there yet myself, but I know that at some point in time, I will be and I will try to greet acceptance with a smile. More will be revealed and I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. In any case, Vanessa’s Harley Sportster has found a new dwelling and is on its way to San Diego.
Now Sportsters aren’t for every rider. To say they’re Old School is redundant at the very least. Truth be told, they’re just cool. A 1200cc motor in 545 pound package is not to be sneered at. Now my Sportster S is about 50 pounds lighter and has more horsepower but that’s another story. The only things these two bikes have in common is the work ‘Sportster,’
Anyway, I love this pretty girl, idiosyncrasies and all and I’m glad she’s going to a more evenly temperate climate where she will be able to prowl the blacktop on a regular basis.
Pointing where the blacktop turns to blue…
