    Honda CT110 'Postie' Adventure Ride

    I want to highlight a story from the 'Farkle Garage' series. For small-bike adventure riding in a big way, check out the episode 7 segment on Honda CT110 'Postie' bikes and one Australian couple's choice of ride for traveling around the world.



    It starts at the 4:40 mark.
    You can follow their adventure on their website at http://overyondaonahonda.com/.

    They stopped by my house about 6weeks ago on there journey. Very nice couple. They live and work on Christmas Island. Showed up here in leathers at 100+ degrees, no thanks. They like the heat.

    agreed, not the most appropriate for real miles, but again when compared to a bicycle... they seem pretty high powered. like so many others tools, the right tool for the right job.

    Thank you, There is an 08 TW200 hiding in there too but Mudbug would fight ya over that one. I've only had the XT for a few months but so far I'm pretty happy with it. Had the CT for somewhere around 20 years now
