First bike I owned was 66 Benelli 125 Barracuda. Four stroke single in 250 frame. lol Just rebuilt, traded two replica black powder revolvers and a Ruger Single Six .22 and .22 rfm and about $50.00 . Put 5,000 miles on it.

I was 7 on some little junker that had a clutch and I couldnt pull it in so I had running starts in first gear. Then a kawi 100 dirt bike. I dont remember what year I think a 1980. then some honda street bike that was a 125 or a 250 with a top speed of about 75. Man did I put the miles on that thing. Then a 93 cbr 600, Short time on a 96 gixxer 750 then a 2003 Suzuki 800 volusia followed by a 98 cbr 900rr and currently own a 2005 R1.

First Ride, First Owned

My first ride and I was hooked was on a 66 Norton Atlas. One of our travel trailerite's kids, who was older than I was taught me just enough to keep me from killing myself and let me ride his Norton. In 72, when I got home from the service I bought my first bike a 72 Suzuki GT380-Red! I've never stopped riding! I currently own 2 BMWs, 2 Yamahas and a Honda. Only one of the BMWs is newer than 79.

Excellent stuff. He'll be the envy of every kid at school.


Gotta love being able to just flip your bike over to work on it! Hard to do with a 530lbs sportbike!
