Another bike has left the stable - this time my Suzuki ER 185. Fortunately it has gone to a good home (we sold it to another Playcentre family). I hope it has a long enough lifespan to justify the price (which I'm confident it will, given the low price and good performance so far).
The ER has been to a few places. Notable jaunts have included a hair-raising trail ride in the Wairarapa which took me to the limits of my abilities (and a bit beyond!). I remember tearing downhill on one section and seeing a very sharp right hand bend, realising that I was not going to make it and just dropping the bike. It skidded to a halt at the edge of the trail, beyond which was a sizeable (unfenced) drop over a cliff. It didn't take long to right the bike again and restart down the track at a very conservative pace.
The ER and I have been on the junior motorcross track at Taupo, and a long way towards the Bridge to Nowhere.
However, this was all a long time ago now and the bike has been gathering dust and taking up space in a full garage. So it was time to let it go.
The Jawa is now for sale too - when it goes we'll just have the two road bikes left.
