Best friend in High School had a Honda 125. I rode on the back of that several times and then we went to the abandoned Airport runways and he got on the back telling me what to do. Rode that thing all year. Went to Air Force Basic Training after graduation. Got stationed out in CA. Found a Master Sgt selling a 82 Honda CB650, bought it for $650. Rode it several months and then took the MSF. Sold it 7 years (1999) later for $650. And due to various life happenings didn't ride again until 2005 when I bought my Yamaha FZ1. The FZ now has nearly 100K miles on her. Had a KLR650 for a while as a first DS bike. Found out it was a great bike, but just too damn big for the type off-road riding I like so she was sold after a year and half and was replaced with a DRZ400.
I ride not to add days to my life, but to add life to my days.
