The new ride

Picked this up today for an unbelievable price, can't wait for the rain to let up and take it out for the first proper ride.

'86 500. I'm a new rider, this feels like a nice middle ground between the little Rebels in the MSF course and my boyfriend's german tank '74 BMW.

Welcome Kahla.
Good catch.
Those bikes are a lot of fun and that one looks like it was someone's garage "princess".
It's always a pleasure to see one of those 80's bikes so well taken care of.

Yep, other than one little scuff on the seat, it's in pretty great shape.

The last owner thought the transmission was shot and sold it to a shop for parts. They checked it out and found it was an easy fix, gave it a once over and priced it to move fast. Runs great now.
