What was your first bike?

What was your first bike and how old were you?

Mine was a TL 125 Honda...13 years old

my six year old son has a Yamaha 50, but hasn't really been on it much yet.

I started with mopeds at 13 yrs old. Had to supe them up too. High School was cars. In college I found a 1984 VF700C Honda Magna. Had quite a few different bike since then.

Triumph Bonneville, bought new from Gus Kuhn in London in the summer of 1969. I had 12,00 miles on it when I shipped it back here from Sweden in September. A good summer. :p

Honda CX500 back in 1980. The wife and I had been at St. Martin in the carib and we rented scooters to tour around the island. Loved it so much that when we came home, I promptly went out and bought the Honda. I had ridden only twice before while in college, both times fun but the St. Martin experience was the clincher.

Mine was a Kawasaki KZ400 and I was 21. I did not have a motorcycle license, but the first time I was stopped the cop suggested I get one in a hurry. When I went to pay my fine they did not charge anything when I showed my new license.

My first bike was a used 60cc Yamaha model Y-J1. It didn't run until my Dad and I resurrected the engine from the 2-year long garage hiatus its previous owner inflicted upon it.

Went from that to a Honda CL-350, and then onto a brand spankin' 1974 Honda 750. Did a 2 1/2 month 10,000+ miler on that baby! Ahhhhh, the memories!

Talking First bike....

Mine was a ? 1970? Kawasaki 400 triple, 2 stroke. You could redline the hell out it. Supposedly, it was a European model, 42 HP rather than 39. Based on the famous 750 triple. Become the proud owner after I borrowed it from my friend for my first road test for my new MC license. That same morning (riding with no license) I was going up and down my street practicing......I came over a slight knoll at 45 mph, and when I saw a local cop coming at me, panicked and yanked on the front (disc) brake only. 10 ft. from cop, went over the handlebars and hit the pavement. Wrecked bike, had to call my friend and tell him I needed to buy it. Went to hospital, minor injuries. Cop let me push bike home, no tickets. Fixed it up, rode it 3 years.

19 years old. Shared it with my younger brother, although he put the most miles on it.

Honda CB-350 (but shook already knew that...)
