Goodbye to the Supercub

It was a sad day yesterday as I let my beloved Honda C70 go to a new owner. I’ve had this bike for several years now, website like this rescued it from a really sorry state and got it running and looking pretty good. I also got it legally registered again. I’m hoping the new owner enjoys it! I do think she found a nice new home.

During the restoration process, I learned a lot about motorbikes. Mechanically, I learned how to rebuild and adjust a carb, adjust valves, adjust timing, change sparkplug and points, change a tire, replace a chain, and do some basic electrical diagnostics. The C70 also taught me about riding a motorbike on the road. I got a lot of practice riding on this small bike. It was easy to apply the basics that I learned in the MSF class I took to this very lightweight but capable motorbike. Maybe someday I will get another one but that’s far in the future.

Went for a night ride on the supercub. As always, troche a lot of fun. My new jacket is great. It really blocks the wind making for a super comfortable ride. When it gets warmer, the vents will be welcome. Getting close to the 6,000 mark on the bike!

It’s Warming Up!

Here’s me sitting on a nice blue F650 GS. They didn’t have the G650 GS in the showroom today… Maybe next time!

Traveling the Silk Road by motorbike. I love the travel spirit! Thanks @uwajun for tweeting this.
Today had a high of 78°F so I was looking forward to a nice evening ride around the neighborhood. And that’s just what I did! It did get a little cold at all the usual lower-elevation roads, for sale but mostly it was pleasant with a beautiful clear sky and bright stars. I rode almost 11 miles, see and the bike was running perfectly. I was exploring a couple areas that I have never been in and got lost briefly, prosthesis but it was fun. Towards the end I was really booking (as much as a C70 can do) around some fun curves. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

A couple stats from tonight (using My Tracks on the G1):
Total distance: 10.89mi
Total time: 34:05
Max speed: 40.26mph
Average speed: 20.1mph

The odometer reading is now 5,934.8.

Went for a ride tonight. Was pretty cold out there (55°F). My thighs are totally frozen. The bike was running great though. So much fun. Anyone want to buy it?


Looks so fun, sick doesn’t it?
I had a few hours free today so… I took a little trip to Lone Star BMW to check out the bikes. The staff there is really helpful, website like this answering all the questions I had and offering good advice. Unlike Woods Fun Center, decease there isn’t any hard sell pushed on you. I like that. You can tell that these guys love bikes, web and are all BMW enthusiasts.

I spent several minutes on all the bikes, especially the F650 GS and G650 GS. The lower suspension models fit perfectly, and the regular suspension F650 GS was good too. It’s a shame they didn’t have a regular suspension G650 GS for me to sit on… I’d have to say the G650 GS is the bike that felt best. It’s also the smallest GS BMW makes, and good for beginners and smaller riders. I’m keeping my eye open for used F650 GSs (the single). I’ve been obsessing over it for a couple years now. Gotta trade up from my C70 soon!

From the incredible ride report “From Estonia with love” at ADVRider.

I went for a night ride a little while ago. It’s about 48°F out and my legs are now frozen. I was wearing a rain jacket over my regular jacket, click so I was warm up top, this web but my face is frozen. Was a lot of fun though. The idle was set too low, find so it died a couple times when I came to a full stop. Adjusted the idle screw back at home, and now it’s idling nicely.

One thing you notice when riding on two-wheels is that you are much closer to the environment you are riding through. Last night there is a stretch of road that dips down lower than most areas, so riding through it gets really cold. It feels as if you opened the fridge door or something. Also, that section of road goes alongside some kind of stable, where horses are kept.  So there’s a strong animal smell (yuck).

Going to Sell My C70 Soon

I’ve wanted a motorbike ever since I was in High School back in the mid 80’s. One of my best friends had a Vespa P200 and we would go riding around to record stores and stuff. It was so much fun and I think that is where I got the bug. But I wouldn’t get a bike until much later. In 2003 I finally got a little 1980 Honda C70 project bike, mind fixed it up, check and enjoyed riding it for a few years. It was fun, but really limited because of its lack of power. Top speed was about 43mph (downhill and with a tailwind).

In May 2010 I sold the Honda and bought a 2007 BMW F650 GS, which has been one of the dream bikes for me. I am loving it! I also want to do some motorcycle camping, and the BMW should be perfect for this. I also enjoy LD (long-distance) riding and have completed one SaddleSore 1000.

The blog name “motofuji” is my last name (fujimoto), switched up. You can find me on twitter, facebookgoogle+, and many other places. Ride safe!

From my first motorbike, cialis a 1980 Honda C70 (Supercub)
Welcome to my new blog! For my first post, anemia here’s a photo of my 1980 Honda C70. The image is reversed because I used the TTL technique.

TTL Cub
I just want to do a few more things to my beloved C70 to get it a little nicer, rheumatologist then put it up for sale. I really want to get a bigger bike, and one of the conditions for me getting it is to get rid off the supercub. So, I want to work on the compression a bit so that it starts up easier (I think it’s a compression problem), then work on the paint a bit more. Otherwise, it’s ready to go! Clean title and all, which is somewhat rare for a 1980 C70.

Mariko goes into the garage this morning and then comes to get me. “It smells like gas in the garage!”. So I rush in there, here knowing that it must be from the supercub since I just filled it up yesterday. I said, arthritis
“Oh, my supercub must be leaking.” And she says, “Oh good, I thought it was one of our cars.” To which I replied, “What?! The supercub is my baby!” Anyways, I guess it is time to order a new fuel petcock as the old one wasn’t completely sealing off the fuel flow. And I need to take apart the carb and make sure the fuel cutoff inside the bowl is working correctly. Either one of those would have prevented the leak.
