Now that is what I call, a sweet ride! I had to go back to the DMV to straighten out a glitch in the registration but since I already had the plates, I rode the Alp down to Hatch and back...a 75 mile ride on State Hwy. 187, the old hwy, a nice two laner through chile, cotton and pecan growing areas....
I have to say I am absolutely thrilled with this bike. It just wants to be ridden and the rider quickly becomes a part of the bike.
My Alp has a Supertrapp exhaust that sounds just like a moto should...like a trumpet! I had a hard time keeping it down to speed limit or just over...it wanted to rip.
I knew all this was true but it was quite a while ago in 1994 I last rode one...my friend's first as I mentioned. It made an impression though and I am really amazed that riders didn't demand the Honda USA bring these in again.
Anyway, just a report of my first ride on Alpenglow and I can hardly wait to head out again....
