Hi Jack and Club Members,
Here is the long over due article. Need your thoughts on a title. Hope the article is okay, but feel free to tweak it. You won't hurt my feelings.
Possible Titles: Did It Happen? You Bet It Did! .
Here’s a brief follow up from my Honda NX 250 quest. As mentioned, my 1989 NX 250 was nearing the 100,000 odometer reading. It was our intention to ride to the IN Thumper Café and have that magical 100,000 happen at that event. Alas, the Corona Virus put a stop to that dream.
So what to do now? Well, we just did some day trips around in OH until the odometer reached 99,999.94. That happened when we made a stop at our favorite Honda Dealership, On The Edge, owned by Dale Barris. He’s the dealer that supplied clutch levels when I first learned to ride, before Roger lowered the forks a little.
Like so many other motorcycle dealerships, Dale had very little inventory and lots of open floor space. An idea popped into Roger’s mind. Dale had a few older cycles on the show floor, so why put the NX with the older bikes and show off what a little 250cc could do. So at 99,999.94 miles, the NX was left at On The Edge.
While the NX was on display, I put more miles on my Suzuki TU250cc and my Kymco 150cc scooter. They’re fun to ride, but my heart belongs to the NX.
Fast forwarded to Sept 26, 2020. I've waited long enough. On a beautiful sunny cool Saturday morning, at 10:30 a.m. the odometer turned over 000,000.00 in the parking lot of On The Edge.
It got cleaned up and winterized with 100,125 miles on the odometer. Can’t wait to ride the NX in the spring. Oh wait, I get to ride my 1989 Honda NX 250 that’s waiting for me in Florida.
Big thanks to my master mechanic, hubby Roger, for keeping all my motorcycles and scooter in tip top shape.
