Now that my gift horse has its new belts, I've begun to learn how to handle it. I took it to a mostly empty mall parking lot to practice low speed turns. I'm having a real problem with my size 13s trying to get used to the heel toe shifter. Other than that I love the bike.
Peace.

Get rid of the heel-toe shifter. Those and floorboards just ain't right on the old wings.

when covid first started i was bored sitting at home with not much to do so i went out and got my '85 CB 450 Nighthawk running. that project came to an end when my neighbors tree fell crushing the bike. yesterday i decided to take on my next project, my '79 CB 750F. with a pocket full of unmarked keys i drove over to Lisa's to find out which key fit. once done i put a key fob on the correct keys and headed back home, i'll try starting tomorrow

got home from Henry's about 15:15 and relaxed until 17:00 then headed over to Lisa's. got the new battery installed in the 750F and tried starting it. it coughed a few times but didn't start, i forgot how little gas i put in the tank last week so i decided to give up and try again tomorrow, i'll bring some gas with me too
