Default Let me introduce you...

Yea I'm totally stir crazy, trapped in the house while more snow flies.

These are my first two street bikes. I forget their years but at 16 1/2 I got the Honda Ascot FT500, an amazing little cafe style bike that I honed my street riding skills on. I rode this one for about a year and a half.


Followed by my favorite bike up until this Victory...the Honda Nighthawk 700s. This bike did it all and I rode the piss out it...We had lots of fun together and one bad accident(from me being a stupid 18year old...) that we both survived.

Had me a red and black Honda Nighthawk 700S and what a neat bike that was. Wishing I kept it too.

Hey now....I loved that bike. At 16 years old and buying my own bike, that's as cool as I was getting.....
It had the single cylinder 500cc XR engine tuned up a bit for the street. It weighed nothing and went pretty good, handling was sharp too. The Ascot was easy and fun to ride, it was a good bike for learning street riding skills. I wouldn't say I regretted getting rid of it since I traded it up for the Nighthawk, which too me was the BomB
