Hueston Woods State Park in Ohio. Nice Park . . . . for Ohio that is. I guess there are 9 covered bridges in the county there. Great Bike riding there!

This is what the bridge use to look like till it was rebuilt this year.

Here's some pics of the bike:







I friggin' loved the look and feel of this bike, but it just wasn't as practical as the FZ6.
Good choice. The kawi would be a little too much for ya.

My first bike was this same bike, same color, same bags, but had drag pipes though. Is yours the 700cc? After my 3rd child was born I decided to sell it and take a few years off riding.

Yep.
I got it from a co- worker in 90 or 91. Was like security for a loan. I gave money got the bike if money was paid back bike would go back.
That's my second set of bags first pair I just throw over seat. A 12 pack would fit in each side,after a while the pipes melted them.

I doubt the 10 extra hp that the ZRX has would make much of a difference, especially since it's heavier.

I brought mine back from Detroit to Cincinnati. People don't understand how comfortable they can be! The wife would like that backrest . . . once she's not prego

I just picked up my new used one on 8/16. Its a 2007 and only had 2135 miles when I picked it up. Noe it has 2985. I just love to just go out and ride around aimlessly.

Is that rear brake or is your foot Broke?
I can barely use my rear brake. In a panic stop I might not be able to move my foot off the peg. Or to apply enough brake to keep me from going over handle bars. It's not the bike though it's my ankle that was crushed, in 94.
If your bike has or can be fitted with disc brakes you can get a proportioning valve, and then use one lever for both. I was going to try to do this but....

its a nighthawk, they are shorter, its hard for me to get my foot on the back break because my legs are bent so much, I can sit on this one, flat foot on the ground with bent knees.
I'm also 6' tall.
