What was the very first motorcycle that you ever rode? It can be a dirt bike, sportbike, or a cruiser.
The first bike that I ever rode was a 1980 Honda CMT 400.

Early 80s XR200 I got when I was about 13. Was riding friends bikes before that. First street bike I got at 17 was Interceptor 500.
Been a happy 20+ years of riding :)

All I can remember was that it was a 80, I think. I was 7 or 8 years old. I couldnt turn it very good so it took me about a block to make a turn and I couldnt pull in the clutch. My dad would stop me. I think it was a honda. I tipped it over all the time, but I have been hooked every since and that was 23 years ago. Since then I have had a number of bikes but right now I have a 2003 volusia for cruising with the wife and a 98 cbr900rr which she does not like to ride on. Lucky me:D

Suzuki X6 Hustler, like this one:



250 cc 2-smoker with a 6-speed gearbox! It was the shiznit when I was 16. :D Wish I had it back. Of course I wish I had every bike I ever sold back. :crying:

1997 Ninja 250. Bought it about 4 years ago for $750, never had it inspected. Tires were bad, it had a hiccup when gunning it from a slow speed, was scraped up, but it was fun to ride. I sold it a few months after buying it for $1000, within days of putting it up for sale.

my first bike was built by my dad. used a lawn mower engine. It had training wheels on it. Rode that a bit. Then got an XR 50 to XL 80 to XR250, to 01 r6 and now currently have an 05 r6.

Didn't start riding until my early 20's, so my first was a yellow and black 2000 CBR600F4. It was my college graduation present to myself.
