End of An Era

Well, today was the last day I will sit on my fancy-schmancy motorcycle. After almost a year of trying to sell it, a friend (who has been admiring the bike for over a year) finally bought it. Of course, I have only owned the bike for a little over 2 years, so I am not sure if I could call it an "era".

Originally, we had planned to have a motorcycle as our only means of transportation. As it works out, that was not practical and once we bought the VW bug, the motorcycle was just for fun, anyway. I loved the "looks" that I would get whenever I rode it. People would stop and talk about the bike. Everyone would say "Great Bike". It was like being a Rock Star- but that is over now (sad face).

To be honest, I will only miss it for a few more days. Almost all of last year, it was sitting in front of a pharmacy on the main road, where the owner sells cars on consignment. He sold Denise's moto almost immediately, but was unable to find a buyer for mine. I actually only saw it a few times over the last year. I have had it back for over a month and it mostly just sat in the little storage shed. So while it would have been nice to have a moto, it wasn't used much, anyway.

So, on this rainy day, I waived goodbye as the little taillights winked on at the bottom of the driveway.

What a lovely bike. It reminded me of my Yamaha Virago 535, the last custom bike I had when I lived in Brazil. The Yamaha Virago 535 is a great bike for riding in the city, being pretty light and handles well. I think that model was discontinued in 2005 in Brazil.

Keeway is the most popular brand in Europe and growing around the rest of the world, as well. Very well made.

I agree... here in France I see a lot of Keeway Cruiser 250 at the moment, a wonderful model, one of the most attractive medium size customs available in the market. I have never seem one in Brazil though. The model I said was discontinued in 2005 was the Yamaha Virago 535.
