Happy and Sad day today

Today is the day I finally sold my RC...

It was my dream bike since I was 17, and I always always loved to ride it. But the time had come for me to sell it. Even though it was a great bike and always ran fast and true, I decided that I liked riding my F3 more than this so it was time to go. I hope the guy from Madison enjoys it as much as I did!

But its ok, I personally didn't pick up a replacement yet but my father bought his first bike today. He got a 1973 Honda ST90. Battery is shot I think so I need to know where to get a replacement, preferably maintenance free battery. Any ideas? Can I use a different battery than what the manual calls for?

Give Battery Plus a call and see if they have a closely matched battery for it.

Careful! The st90 is a 6 volt system. I have a 1975. I got a replacement battery for like $20 at carquest.

I miss my RC every day still and it has been gone for 2 years now. Every time I hear one on the road I get whiplash trying to see it.

He got the battery through carquest. As for me, I've seen a few good bikes out there, but not sure why deals are so hard to find on an 05-06 600rr
