Thanks for the nomination and second gentlemen.  I'm not certain my bike is worthy for consideration for BOM and I do appreciate the nimination..  Per the rules I've just read, I do accept the nomination by seanbarney and 2nd by Tintop. Not certain what happens now but will await my cue from the moderator.

Would have loved to accept the renewed BOM nom, but sadly I've moved on... or rather the CB350F has moved on - to Miami FL. (bike sold in 1 hr!!!) I put this up for sale so I could buy my latest 2 wheeled infatuation, a 2014 Honda CB1100 Deluxe. Found a pristine example in AZ and had it shipped to NH. I got to enjoy the CB350F all summer. My 37 yr old son got his MC license in July (I was shocked, but so excited for him). I put him on the 350F for about half dozen rides to insure he had paid attention in his MSF course. The 350F will be missed, but I mostly restored it to answer my curiosity about that bike. Saw them when they first came out and was intrigued. By the time I had $$ for one, I opted to go with a CB750 instead. The CB350F was fun to ride, but it was mostly suited to back road, and in-town jaunts. Not something I'd want to be on for 8-10 hrs. This coming summer, my son & I will trade back-n-forth between one of my two CB750-K1's and the CB1100 (if he's not intimidated by it), and hope to get him on my '99 Valkyrie Interstate by the end of summer. Next up is the '75 CB400F that's patiently awaiting my wrenching. Thanks again for the nod, and ride safe!

I happily accept the nomination of my 550. I still have the bike and it looks just as good with about 800 miles on the restoration now.
I like poetry, long walks on the beach, and poking at dead things with a stick.
