Eric is one my favorite riding buddies. We don't call and talk on the phone or meet at the bar every weekend or any of that. In fact, we rarely communicate. Instead, we just get together and go on multi-day riding trips every year or so. Eric's got a contagious and youthful sense of adventure that can turn a boring trip into a banger in no time. Eric, some other friends and I were lucky enough to ride for a week together this summer and this time his lovely lady friend Whit rode the whole way with a proud smile, just stoked to be with her man and his chop.
We used to call Eric "XS Eric" because of the beaten and abused but always faithful Yamaha he rode for years. After getting serious with Whit, Eric went on the hunt for a suitable two-up dream machine. He eventually landed a ridiculous deal on this CB basket case: 200 bones. "CB Eric" doesn't have the same ring as our friend's old moniker, but we hope Eric, Whit and his Honda chopper will be together for a long time.
