Between the rain drops and gale force winds, I insisted on taking the ’65 Honda around town. I’ll be hauling it down-state tomorrow, so this was my last chance to get some pictures of the Benly in the North. The weather was not great for riding, with high winds and periods of rain. On the way to Bellaire and later into Alden, I experienced sleet biting into my face like little needles. The sleet didn’t bother the Honda one bit.
I rode to Bellaire to take some higher resolution pictures of the bike by Mom’s shed, then decided to ride into Alden. I stopped at local landmarks along the way to take pictures, worried that the high winds would knock the bike over. While I stopped for pictures at the Dockside restaurant, a woman got out of her car and started taking pictures of the little motorbike with her cell phone. After taking some pictures in Alden, I returned to the house.
The odometer now reads 6201 – 52 miles since it’s been restored. It’ll be fun riding it around town when I get it home.
