Farewell ride.

Pardon a little nostalgia.

(Hopefully she sells tomm, but if not, she is spotless and ready and this was the last real ride before she does sell. Went up in the hills and did some nice twisties, cold but beautiful ride. I'm gonna miss this bike. Photo-op when I got home courtesy of Mrs. Lockjaw. And Little Lockjaw wanted in on the action of course - the "little bike" is hers - she understands though. I just have to buy her a MC someday.)

Soon, we ride.

AKA JD Mader or you can call me "Dan" just not early for dinner.

Why you selling her? I wouldn't sell it. She's a beauty. Ooops, never mind. I found your other thread. Good luck with sale.

Nice that you got in a last good ride and also got some shots of you riding the CB instead of just photos of it sitting still in the driveway. Good luck with your sale!

Thanks guys! Yeah, I realized I didn't have any pics of me ON the 450. Just pics I took on rides. You know how it is. And I managed to convince the little one to come in for a shot (she hates having her pic taken...wonder where she got that from).

Lockjaw,
Sorry to hear that you are parting ways with the bike, but am glad to hear that you found a new place.
When you get settled in- let's ride.
