But Bella. she was … Though the saddle was a barely-covered 2×4, the cafe position made 500 mile the absolute limit, and though it a mere 81 hp, the riding experience was As has been mentioned, it fell turns, and though heavy and underpowered, throttle control a whole new experience, and I routinely by CB’s, FJ’s, KZ’s, and the Not so curiously, it was
