Well, that went faster than I expected. I posted an ad selling the Symba two weeks ago on Kijiji. A few casual inquiries and then suddenly this weekend saw a host of emails about it.
Sunday morning one party came by, made a good offer and we shook hands on it. Then they rushed about getting it inspected and so forth, leaving with it that afternoon (busy day for them driving hither and yon).
So, at around 3:00pm yesterday the Symba left on a truck, bound for a new home and hopefully a rider who will appreciate her. Let’s hope the Honda doesn’t get lonely in the garage.
Yesterday I became the proud owner of a Sym Symba (a copy of the venerable Honda Cub), and finally spent a few hours zipping around the neighborhood this morning.
I have ZERO experience riding (other than the course) and am feeling my way around on this. The Symba, aside from giving me a little more experience riding, should give us more flexibility when it comes to our one car household (meaning I can take the Symba to work, instead of leaving Lisa without a car), and the fuel economy cannot be beat.
I still stare longingly at sport bikes as they zip past, but I’ll be learning my way around the Symba for a bit yet, and I’ll admit I’m groovin on this little bike!
