    1971 rd 200

    I found an old beauty in a barn in Arcadia, Florida and kept it in my garage until gas started to ebb up again. I decided it would serve me better as a daily driver than a bike to make pretty and just look at. Well I'm quite happy with the results, 55 mpg, really quick for a 200 and quite nible. Needless to say I like it and my credit card doesn't get near the work while the dodge 4x4 rests in the driveway waiting for weekends to tow the boat. I've been really gunshy about bikes since my first son was born and as the others came along the responsablity seemed to get greater so I sold all the toys (atvs) and got safer hobbies. Now my second oldest has started rideing and I figured what the heck, if you can't beat them join them.

    Like I posted in the other thread, show us some pictures of the old girl. We all like going down memory lane.
