Runways and Hundos
My 500 has been running pretty solid, but over the last few weeks I’ve been fine tuning it. I pulled the carbs last week and did a bench sync, which helped a lot. This morning I did a full tune up and then decided to take her out for a ride. I was on my way towards the ocean (I’m in NYC for those of you that don’t know), when I saw an entrance to a park and an access road I have never been on before, so I made the impulse decided to check it out.
My god. An abandoned airfield! Holy shit! Other then a few fisherman and some other motorcyclist I had the place to myself. What a great place to test out the cb500 full throttle (which I haven’t gotten to do yet). After taking some passes to make sure there weren’t any crazy bumps, I went for it, and I’m happy to say the 500 didn’t bog at all and had no problem hitting 100+
What a great ending to the weekend.
