    Need help

    I am starting to think I have an iron deficeincy ? Just picked up another 2 wheeler. It is a Honda 110 with the two speed under a 4sp.
    It is in good shape for age and looks decent. Have ordered a couple parts to do it justice.

    I bought it because I am hoping my wife will be more comfortable on something that she doesn't have to clutch, is slow enough to get through the rough and still be able to take on the road.

    She is with Dette this weekend having a girly weekend riding. It is her birthday on Sunday so I figured I would give her this little bike that is lighter and a lot less power. I am hoping it will help her with balance and shifting without having a clutch to deal with.

    Ok, I went to get a haircut and brought home another bike. Am going to have to do a photo shoot of my disease. A 110 Honda, three TW200's, a Kawasaki 1500 and a Goldwing 1800. I know I need help.

    Sounds like you almost have enough bikes.

    Remember the formula:

    n + 1= correct number of bikes
    Where n is the number of bikes you currently have.

    And my favorite saying:

    "It is not a "collection" if you only have one of something."

    I wonder if Randell remembered to get the haircut?
    What a good husband to give a Honda for a birthday gift....and to think I just gave flowers and jewelry to my better half.

    FLOWERS ?, JEWELS?, never crossed my mind. Well I did pick up a cake, how is that. I told her what I had done and I am sure Dette will fill her in on it. She seemed really happy to have something smaller and easier to work being an automatic. Will see how it goes. Kind of like the You can lead a horse to water thing. Like I posted, I am not going to push her. She has to want to do this herself.

    I went back to get the haircut and she had left for the weekend. I called her as I know her as a friend and I knew she wasn't feeling to well. She told me to come on over to the house and she would fix me up. I will catch her next week and hope she is doing better.
