Waiting for my slightly scratched Honda trail 70

Literally watched one bumper plug on the left pop off and the right one is half out as I sit here in road construction looking at it.

Then the guy walks back to see if the unit is still there. SMH

If it had a plate on it, it would be legal to drive in Illinois campgrounds. Using it to go down the road to the store might be a bit of a pucker factor.

I would just go around the road debris. LOL

I had a blue Honda about that size back in the late 70's that we use to take camping with us. It was licensed for the road in Missouri and I could drive it almost anywhere. On a good day it might go slightly over 35 miles an hour. Along with a horn and lights it had turn signals and front and rear brakes. Turned out that it was more trouble then it was worth so I sold it.

That brings back some memories. That was my first mini bike riding experience back in '75.

My second mini bike was a new 1970 Honda 50 and when I was 16 picked up a used Honda 125 for $125 and got my license at 16 years of age. I drove it to the DMV and luckily the guy let me slide. It topped at at 55 MPH with a slight tail wind. A friend of mine still has his 50. Passed it to his son and is now waiting to be passed to a grandson.

Sounds like he's bolted that thing to his bumper and it's flexing and popping out the plugs. I wouldn't follow him too closely!

My DW had a Honda 50. She loved that bike growing up. Her brothers grandson has it now. Can kill it!
