You Meet the Nicest People on a Honda
It's not every day you see a nearly 50 year old motorcycle still in operation.
Amanda and Ivan rode a 1965 Honda S90 to the farmer's market in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania adding a few more miles to the 12,000 currently on the odometer. A short conversation revealed Ivan keeps the machine in operating condition along with two other vintage bikes -- a 1982 Yamaha XJ750 and a 1974 Honda CB360.
After a quick photo with the iPhone I couldn't help but think about the advertising campaign in the early 1960s that rocketed Honda sales upward in the United States -- You meet the nicest people on a Honda.
Makes me wonder if I don't need a project bike in the garage...
