So as I am walking around my yard doing that mind numbing task called "cutting grass" I notice my Honda water pump sitting by the lake. Then as I push my Honda lawn mower passed the garage I notice my Wing sitting next to my Ridgeline. So I think to myself why do I own so many Hondas and do other people owm as many as well. (Opps I forgot I have 13HP Honda on a Go Devil that we use duck hunting but it isn't in my yard right now). I know that the small engines have always been easier to start and more reliable than any of the others I have had over the years. So my question is how many different Honda machines do you own and why?

Guess my extent of Honda Products is limited to just two Honda Gold Wings....But my son in Conroe needed a mower, and I gave him my 6 year old Briggs and Stratton powered mower....It quit???....His neighbor is letting him use his 8?? year old Honda mower, cutting deck has a few rust holes in it, the discharge chute was missing, but it cranks and runs like a new one..That sucker will throw a pop can out at you in a heart beat...I know I had to duck one.....:shock:....

I have never had any problems with any Honda product we owned in the chemical plants where I worked on the equipment, we did however have Briggs, Kohler, and Wisconsin engines that were always in the shop for repairs...Honda products were much more expensive, but well worth it...The company, at my request bought Honda products to replace some of our two year old totally wore out equipment.....Our "down time" on mowers, pumps etc was cut drastically....Within one year they paid for them selves.....

It's one of these:
http://ct90-ct110.com/1961454545Early45Trail.html

except mine is a 1960, one of the very first, complete but not as clean as the one in the pics.

It is one of the very first dual sport / trail bikes made. these things were the inspiration for the honda trail 50, then the trail 70, 90 and so on.

I'm sure some collector would like to have it. I've got some pics of mine somewhere, I'll post a few as soon as I remember what file they are in.

my Yamaha outboard died this summer 2 days before the inlaws where to show up at the lake. The Honda dealer didn't have what I needed but the Yamaha dealer did and gave me a great deal as well so my boat still doesn't have a Honda on it. My UTV and yard tractor are Kubodas,but that is because it is a diesel thing.

Son's 2007 Civic
Wife used to have a Civic but one of our sons totalled it and we couldn't find a low mileage one in the price range we could afford, so we replaced it with a Corolla. I love the Honda cars too. I've had a CRX, 2 Civics and an Odyssey previously.
