Sadly...

Hi All,

Yesterday, my beloved "Nena" left the house on a trailer. Sniff...

My reason for selling it is that my wife has been diagnosed with osteoporosis, and therefore it would be too risky to ride on a motorcycle.
We were lucky all these years of big bore riding - down to Panama and up to Nicaragua - and did not have one accident or even a fall. Anyway... In Spanish we say: °No trates de tentar al diablo!, meaning that one should not tempt the devil.

I would like to introduce the new owner, Mr. Kevin Fortier, who will probably sign up one of these days. Give him a warm welcome, the same I had when I joined the forum.

Thanks for everything, and keep up the excellent work!

Best regards from Costa Rica,

Napoleon (aka "Nappy")

Mine left but haven't heard from the new owner. Hopefully the bike and him are well.

Hi All, and especially Wolfie,

Thanks for the wishes, and the prayers!

In the meanwhile I could not keep still and acquired a Suzuki AN-125 scooter with barely 600 miles on it. ...and this is my umpteenth two-wheeled vehicle in red. Seems that they (the red bikes and scooters) find me, and not the other way around.

Let's see "red":

Lambretta 150 (my first own scooter) in 1962
Lambretta 175 TV
Velosolex 3000
Honda CX 500
Honda VT 600C
Yamaha Virago XV750
Vento Phantom Ri
Suzuki Intruder 800
Honda Reflex
Kawasaki Vulcan VN750
Suzuki AN-125

..enough for today!

Cheers from Costa Rica,

Nappy
