That bloody windscreen
My weapon of choice? the Honda CB250 complete with top box and at least for the moment, a windscreen. Now please understand, I love bikes, I always have. Deep down I'd rather be on two wheels almost every time. Granted out of preference it would be a GSXR 750 (or something of that ilk) but a bike all the same.
So why the CB250 and more importantly why the top box and that bloody windscreen. I find myself asking myself this question as I do the realisation has dawned on me that its practical and should do exactly what I want it to. That's about as simple as it is.
I'm not really sure when the change happened. When the practicality of something such as a bike became more important then the pure style of the thing. Of course I'd still love the GSXR but as a winter hack to run me to and from work I hoping the CB has been a wise choice. As is mostly the case, time will tell. One thing for sure is Jack loves it.
