I built my first bike out of electric conduit for the frame back in 1955. No photo because no camera.
Been hooked on bikes since.

MY first bike was a 2001 Suzuki Marauder. I got it in 2008 for 2k bucks. Put a set of tires, chain and sprockets and 2 sparks plugs on it, as well as oil changes and 15k miles.

Sold it this past spring for 1,800$. It was a good cheap bike to learn on but I don't like cruisers now. I took it for a last ride after putting some miles on my new KLR and the Marauder rode like a pig.

While the Boondocker was my first real dirt-bike, this..........


was my first real street bike. At 17!
I had a tough life as a kid.

1984 Suzuki GR650 'Tempter'

Bought it in 1997 -- drove it for a month with no license much to my wife's displeasure. For ~10 years I kept telling myself that I was going to sell it and get something else
