‘I KNEW I WAS GO­ING TO CRASH'

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

‘The CB500 was my first big bike,’ said reader Alvarro Barroso Gon­za­lez, who lived in the UK for 10 years but is now in Biar­ritz, France. He told MCN: ‘I wanted ei­ther a sin­gle or a twin cylin­der bike and some­thing that was cheap (as I was ex­pect­ing to crash a bit). It cost un­der 800 quid, was A2 lim­ited (that alone cost 300 quid) and was poorly kept. Even so, I loved it and still miss it now. I trav­elled all over with her, it had a nice kick af­ter 6000rpm and I even man­aged to sell it for the same money!’
