your first motorcycle?

I don't have one but do plan on getting something that is cheap and easy to learn. I am making this thread to get a good idea on what bike I should get.

If you got pics of your bike, post'em



bye

i started on a Suzuki ER 50. that thing was SLOOOWWW. all my friends had 50's but mine was the slowest so i made up for it with my riding. in the year i rode it i dropped it about half a dozen times. to know the limits you need to push them.
it was better than my 10 speed and it was my own transportation so i couldn't complain.
i quickly upgraded to a 125 then a 600.

First bike was a Suzuki 850 GS/G shaft drive lump.
Stuffed in an 1100 motor, but it was still a LUMP......
