Local Motorcycle Dealer Scores Rare Adventure Bike
Family Powersports has a bit of a score, and since we have a ton of riders on this page, I thought I'd let you know.
There is a growing category of motorcycles called "Adventure Bikes." They're like a hybrid of off-road and on-road. One of the big ones making waves is the Africa Twin by Honda.
What's crazy is Honda actually created this category of bikes back in the 1980s, then left the category behind. This means these bikes are still pretty rare at this point. They are, in fact, so rare right now that Family Powersports actually has one on loan for Lubbockites to check out.
The Africa Twin's main function is to 'Go Anywhere,' and so far critics are raving about it. The long and short of it is that they'll take pretty much anything you throw at them and come back for more.
I come from a dirt bike background, and I personally like how mean the bike looks, with a fairing to keep the mud and bugs out of your way. I also love the way you can be just cruising down the highway and opt to go off-road at any minute.
Family Powersports has the bike on hand through this weekend (May 27-29) and will add it to their stock soon. Go get a peek while you can. It may be just a bit before production catches up with the demand.
