New bike Honda XL 185 S (Moved)

Post by Alex_P » Sun Dec 08, 2019 3:35 pm

Hi Guys,

I just want to share the pleasure of my new bike I shot today.
From a very nice guy I bougt a 1982 Honda XL 185 S in amazing condition with nice patina.
I bought this bike because I was infected with the "less is more"- virus from my Ural (and so it's just right in the ural forum :P ).
I searched for a bike that I can take together with my ural and my father, who did his motorcycle drivers license in the age of 70, to do some offroad camping trips and share some time, which is known as unfortunately bounded.
Now we are good prepared and I love to have a "new" bike that I can just keep running with the help of my swiss multitool :boogie: #

:boogie: :boogie: :boogie:
