FIRST RIDE - Honda Super Cub
The Honda Super Cub. 2019. The most produced motor drive vehicle in the world - over 100 Million sold since first appearing in 1966. Amazing! Honda brought back the Super Cub this year in a limited run. Upgrades include the engine is now 125cc and electric upgrades such as push button start.
Now it is a bit quirky, having ridden motorcycles for well over 42 years and logged over 300,000 miles; there I sat upon the little red seat, depresed the shift lever and nothing - nothing - it wouln't go! Ahhhhh, that's right all the way down, where 1st should be is neutral! Shift pattern is up! OK, got it!
As a reader of this blog you have noticed I was considering the Super Cub; but really love my Indian. Just did not want to drag around a trailer all the time. Well, took the leap and bought the Honda simply to have both worlds. Hang it on the back of the RV when it arrives later this year. And occasionally drag the Indian on a trailer.
Really bought the Super Cub, not only for the connvinence of being able to carry all the time - you know to pop down and get a bottle of wine or a pizza while camping, but to ride some tails too.
The Indian is purely a "Pavement Princess".
Not the roughest trail, but one the Indian would never see. Do look forward to riding the little bike on the trails around Silverton. Colorado. Done those many times with the R1200GS rig. MOab too. I took the 4Runner up Shafer Canyon Trail; won't have the same "pucker factor" riding the Super Cub!

Late this season, or next Summer, will go back out and
run the Super Cub up to Animas Forks and take Ophir Pass over to Teluride for lunch.
If you have never been to SW Colorado, you really must go. Search this blog to see many articles on the area.
I don't know about that; but it is a bit of a "pucker" driving it. On a motorcycle don't believe it quite as
intense. In the 4Runner there were times you could only see the drop off at your right front fender (going up) I mean know idea where your tire is relitive to the edge! Also should you encounter a vehicle desending there are few places to pass. YIKES!
