Alkisah begini.. dari awalnya diriku tu pengen banget pnya motor... n pilihanku tertuju pada motor HONDA yang terkenal ngirit, banter, gesit, genit, dan lainnya.... pokoknya bandel deh..
Apalagi motor yang satu ini... wooooow dari lirikan matanya ni.... menggairahkan, ntu liat potonya..
palagi dari bodi sampingnya yahuuuud,
tapi jangan salah dari blakang tak kalah semoknya dari bebek2 biasa yang ada..
Dilahirkan pada taon 1976, isi cilinder 70cc, body warna hijau, warna TNKB hitam (ugh menyeramkan..), dan makanannya bensin 4,5 liter klo fuel.. HONDA C70 itulah namanya cman diriku sering menyebutnya si PiPit.. cinta sejatiku....(walah sok romantis yee... kyak g butuh wedokan) ya memang butuh, maksudnya tu juga bisa diajak berpetualang cinta.. walaupun hanya beberapa gadis menyatakan mau (dengan berat hati mo ngomongnya) berboncengan denganku menaiki si PiPit.. yang pentingkan jurus rayuan gombalnya kukeluarkan.. (ciaaaat-ciaaaat-ciaaaaaaat... kena dech.. hehehe) beberapa pergi lagi.. yang laen ngantri kali ya.... Ups koq jadi ngomongin ntu sich...
Kita lanjut lagi.....
Dengan rata-rata kecepatan 80-100 Km/jam motor ni dah menyusuri
berbagai daerah pebukitan diantaranya: wonosari, kulon progo, kaliurang, merapi, magelang, kaki bukit gunung sumbing dan masih banyak lagi... sampe lupa aku, dah mengembara kemana ja, cos menemaniku hampir 10 tahun...
Walaupun dia tidak seumuran denganku malahan lebih tua dariku sekitar 5 tahunan.. tapi dia dah menemaniku melanglang berbagai kota, khususnya daerah Jogja Rock City... masih tangguh kan.... bayang pun 10 taon men....
Ada kisah unik diriku dengan si PiPit.. begini ceritanya......
Pada suatu waktu (lupa aku kapan ya, pokoknya pada saat mo brangkat kuliah) dah keburu waktu ups tiba2 smpai di jalan raya tu keadaannya macet... padahal aku dah tancap gas.. wuuuus-wuuuuus.... ciiiiiiiiiit.. tiba-tiba di sebelah barat pertigaan Janti ada mobil ngerem mendadak... diriku dan si PiPit pun kaget... Astaghfirullah.... ccciiiiiiiitt.. GEDUBRAK.... ban depan si PiPit masuk dibawah bemper belakang mobil tu... dan aku berpikir waduh roda si Pipit nee... ternyata sekejap kulihat dan kurasakan Alhamdulillah g da perbedaan dengan sebelum nabrak... padahal aku melihat bemper mobil tu penyok2 hingga membentuk ban si PiPit...
Itu tadi kisah Klasik yang dulu untuk Masa depan.. untuk cerita anak cucu...
