Thumbs up every thing ends

As the saying goes all good things come to an end-I sold my CB300F this day to a nice first time local rider-I told him to make sure he joins this forum and I'm sure ya'll will treat him right-why did I sell it well I just don't need two bikes anymore and my 2019 CB500X is just so nice it's my ride of choice-- I enjoyed it here but so long for now

Which is also a green thing.

Funny, the thought just occurred to me that you'd have to look back to the 1970's when all the candy pearl colors were in vogue, to find factory green Honda motorcycles. But, wasn't there a recent street bike model from Honda in a green color, or am I thinking of another brand?

I sold my Deauville over two years ago but I'm still on the DeauvilleUK forum Just posted a picture a few minutes ago in reply to a voltmeter thread. I keep a quite extensive set of photos of stripdowns etc. Often helps new members find where a certain part has been hidden by Mr Honda.

Nothing gold can stay. If I had a CB500X I'd sell the 300 as well. I work for Honda and I've been trying to convince the store owner to put a CB500X in the showroom, but he's not convinced it would sell. I think I'll tell him I will buy it. Been wanting one for 2 years and it's heavily revised for this year which makes me want it more. I just don't care for the colorway...

I'm afraid if I worked in a dealership with new bikes and all kinds of goodies, I'd end up "working to pay the company store".

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question.

My first street bike, purchased for $800 in 1991, was a '80 Honda CM400T and was very green. There is one for sale on my local CL that I am trying not to buy.

My BSA Shooting Star that I bought in 1960 was green.. Did many miles on it and toured all west Europe over a period of 18 months while stationed in Germany with RAF.

The BSA in your pictures is a twin cylinder. The Shooting Star was a 500 cc single.

I've spent most of my money on women, motorcycles, and beer.
The rest of it I just wasted.
