Here is my first bike.

For some strange reason this is the only pic I have of her. It isn't in the best condition since it was taken after I crashed her.

My first bike at age 16. I'm pretty sure it was out to kill me.





My first scooter. It was warm that day.

^^^^^Interesting ATGATT!



My first street legal bike was a 1979 CX500. This would have been in 1995:


My first motorized 2 wheeler was a King O' Lawn Aggie bike from 1968. My dad picked it up in about 1982

I still have it.

Hopefully it'll be my boy's first bike some day too!


(We were just posing for a pic here - no riding involved at that age!)

No pics. It was a 65 BSA Lightning I bought from the dad of a friend in 1972. He had been going to race her. Did up the engine (high compression, cam, exhaust, etc.) then decided he didn't want to after all. She ran like a scalded dog, but I had to carry at least 6 sparkplugs everywhere I went to be sure of making it home.
There was no key; just used the kill switch. But, I never worried about anyone stealing her; if you didn't know exactly how to kick start her, she'd throw you over the bars or break your leg. Good times.

2004 Geely scooter, before the cheap Chinese scooters became a fad. Not this one, but the same model:

1993 xr80r, my birthday present when i turned 10.
had to dig to find this.

that pic was probably 1994 since the visor was broken, sat the helmet on the seat it rolled off.
that bike spent more time on its side than it did on its wheels.

is that real enough?

My first bike was a titled XR400 roughly 3 years ago.
I still have it and took it up to canada (and killed it on the way back) this year.



I like it because it makes me feel emotions.

It's funny because I know exactly what you mean.
