Dutch newbie

Post by Lauran on Tue 02 Feb 2016, 5:16 am

Goodmorning all here.

Let me introduce myself. First my excuses for my bad english language. Speaking is going very well but writing? Laughing .
My name is Lauran, I'm 54 years old and i'm living at the southwest coast of the Netherlands.
My wish was always to get my license for driving a motorbike so i go for it and at 27 january this year i pass the exam in one time!
Wow yeah I felt like a child so happy..
But now I of course wanted a motorcycle.
I went looking for a local website and found a beautiful Honda CB 500 from 1994 with nearly 50,000 kilometers.
To be honest, I was looking for a big touring bike but when I saw the CB500 for the first time and had them test drive I was in love.
I will try to post some pictures here so you can see my new love.
The price I paid for her was 750 euros, which is about 570 GBP I guess?

Okay friends. Until later and I like to hear comments on my CB500

Welcome to the forum Lauran, and congratulations on passing your test.

That's a great looking bike, and very reasonably priced - especially where you are, as prices seem higher there. It looks like it's been well cared for.

Your English is very good I think.

Good looking bike for what would be a good price here in the UK.

I wouldn't worry about your English - none (few?) of us can speak or write Dutch as well as you can write English!

Welcome Lauren,

That's a cracking looking bike for the price & at 50.000KM it's barely been run in too.

Thank you all for the nice messages. Did the last 2 days drove about 80 miles and it's a great bike to ride. I call her for a "tough lady." great bike.
