My Motorcycle Insurance

My insurance for my 1978 Honda CB550 went down for 2006; it’s $468 now. Last year it was $485.31. Insurance going down. That’s a first.

    I think mine’s still $2400 a year, though I haven’t been home in a while to find out if I got any mail from them or not.

    Pender, that is because no one likes you.

    That’s not what your mom was saying last night while she was screaming “I likes you! I really really likes you!” in my ear while I was trying to ignore her.

    I pay around $80/year for my bike, but I’m in NY. I have the same one as you (that’s how I came across the site: it’s a 1978 CB550K).

    Unfortunately, she spent about 4 hours completely immersed in water (thankfully, not salt) after a flood. She fired up fine the next day, and would have even started off the battery (no idea why that was still working) if I hadn’t run it down before thinking to clean the points. That also explains why I’m searching for maintenance pages for my machine.

    Right, I sort of skipped a step. “She fired up fine the next day, after I had completely disassembled every part I could managed to pry off in freezing (literally) weather under a streetlight at 22:00 the night before, changed the oil twice, pulled the spark plugs, saturated the cylinders (through the plug holes) with WD-40 and cranked the engine multiple times, rinsed the fuel tank a few times, run about a cup of petrol through each of the needle valves since there was no way I could get the carbs out, etc.”
