Yet one more reason to play paintball. Sitting around at a pump tourney yesterday, my dad mentioned wanting to get me on a motorcycle. A certain famous forumer I wont mention says "oh, she can have my old one. Just come pick it up tomorrow afternoon."
We figured, might as well go look at it, and that I'd have a good learner bike, if nothing else. Besides, I've been wanting to work on engines and such for a while.


Upon arrival, this is what I saw, and promptly drooled, all over:

Honda 'Magna', v-twin, water cooled, 750. It only has 5,000 miles on it.
He laid it over once and used that as an excuse to go buy a new bike. It only needs about 100 dollars worth of parts, all of which is cosmetic rather than physical damage. It probably needs some wheels in the near future, but thats it. It bluebooked at $3,500, with 49,000 miles.
WOW what a present! I was really blown away.

My mom on the other hand... doesnt feel as good. Shes convinced I'm gonna kill myself, and mad that we didnt ask her first. How do I get her to let me keep it? I really am careful on two wheels... *shrugs*

thanks, and yeah, i actually wanted a 650, just based on being able to pick it up on my own and stuff... but i was suprised at how managable this one was. and its literally the perfect height, i wouldnt change it an inch.

i think ill literally cry if i cant convince my mom to let me keep it...

very nice!


My mom is the same...but if i was given one she would probably change her mind...well she would still be convinced that i would kill myself...but she wouldent stop me..

as for your mom...no clue how to convince her...tell her you will save a buttload on gas?

point it out to her that it needs work, and that it'll build character in you by teaching you how to fix motorcycles, being responsible, taking motorcycling classes, be willing to PAY for all parts yourself, as well as the motorcycle insurance, I dont know if NH DMV needs insurance om motorcycles, but its a good idea nonetheless. tell her its either you're riding on your own, or riding with bad men from Hells Angels :wacko:

Nice bike, I have an 1100 honda shadow. My mom doesn't like the idea of me having a bike but she has gotten used to it over the past 2 riding seasons. She didn't have much say my dad is a big bike guy

haha. My mom wouldn't even let me ride a scooter if I wanted to, thus I'm relegated to the one-ton truck. :D

Nice deal, that's one cool forumer whoever he is.

Just be careful. I lost what I considered to be one of my brothers in a motorcycle accident.

Motorcycles should be called "speedcoffins".

I know them as crotch rockets. Because if you hit something, your crotch is going to rocket right into the gas tank.
