Since we last chatted about our Honda CB550, it was running golden with it’s clean carburetor rebuild…well it was running golden while it was stationary and I was revving away at the throttle grip. However, with our initial shakedown with me piloting the bike, the bike bogged and died. At first, we tried giving it the electric start, but it wouldn’t budge. From that point on, I knew it was our battery giving us problems once again. Luckily enough, we had a back up starter aka kick-start! After a few kicks, she was back online and I rode her safely back to the garage only for it to bog down once again and die. So we’re off to debug this issue and we’ll definitely update you all with our progress. Until then, check out this sweet cafe racer video from Italy. Che bel paesaggio!
