A four stroke day:
Dawn of 14/04/2001, at 06:30 hs, minutes before the sunrise.
1st stroke: Dawn at the vicinity of the Goiania International Autodrome, on the 14/04/2001. Beginning a fast trip to Caldas Novas - GO (as an excuse to go to the barber shop, in order to have a haircut and a beard trimming).
Posing in front of the restaurant; fuel station at Cristianopolis-GO.
2nd stroke: "Technical" stop at Cristianopolis-GO (Entre Trevos fuel station) to top up the fuel tank. Me and my Honda C 100 Dream.
Me, Tonico (barber) and my Dream. Tonico (Antonio Rabelo Sobrinho) is one of the top barbers at Caldas Novas.
3rd stroke: In front of Ellus Cabelereiros (Ellus Barber Shop), with Tonico. Fortnightly I pay my routine visit to this barber shop: I leave Goiania - GO early in the morning to go the barber shop; I ride 162 km to Caldas Novas - GO, get a beard trimming (and a hair cut when it is the case) and ride back 162 km in my Honda C 100 Dream.
My Dream at the flower clock, nearby Flamboyant Shopping Center.
4th stroke: Arriving back in Goiania - GO, my Dream over the footpath nearby the flower clock. Check the time, it is 13:40 hs on the 14/04/2001. This small trip of approximately 330 km is our "training session"; it is simply a trip, just for the sake of it.
On the 30/04/2001 I repeated my traditional route: Goiania - Caldas Novas - Goiania.
"Pit Stop" at the State Military Road Police.
The tree in flowers (blossoming) shows the power of Nature in a sunny morning at the end of April/2001.
Below you can see my Honda C 100 Dream at the end of May/2001, immediately after clocking 40.000 km. From all my motorcycles this one became special for me, simply because I rode it intensively in many different roads without having any trouble at all. I took it through gravel rural roads, I put it to endure heavy urban traffic, and my Dream always performed wonderfully. Having that in mind I can say: this little motocycle is a classic, second by none; it is the most sturdy, low maintenance and well built little bike I came across so far.
