Not sure if this counts, but it was my first ADV ride--around the block, solo.

I'll have to do some digging to see if I have any pics of me on my first bike when I got it.

It was a King O' lawn Mini bike called the Aggie Bike. It was built off the jig and plans from Mickey Thompson’s pit bike. If it were an authentic Mickey bike, it’d be worth a mint.

Actually, I’m glad it’s not – or I’d be tempted to sell it. Now, there’s no danger of that.

I just drug it out of the shed a couple of years ago and restored it. No pics of me on it, but here’s a video:

Sadly, that was before I had a gopro, so the onboard part is pretty crummy. But, it’s all I got for now.

My first bike was a 1978 GL1000 project in 2009. My first *RUNNING* bike, however, was a 1983 CB550SC:


It lasted all of one month and 1,000 miles before the crankshaft bearings started coming apart, so I sold them both for parts and bought my current ride, a Suzuki DL650 Much as I love the Wee-Strom, I still miss the Goldwing, though. It would have been a sweet ride if I had had the time and money to do the restoration I wanted to do on it

That is our trusty 1966 IH 1 ton Crew Cab short bed with a 304 and 2 barrel carb. I never heard it referred to as as a Travelette Campermobile, but it might have been. It was a great truck! I bought it from my dad in HS to carry all my friends and beer kegs around the mountains and desert. It was stolen out of my front yard when I was away on a motorcycle ride. I sure miss the truck, but not filling it with gas.

Those are ``lineman`s boots`` for climbing telephone poles and trees. We all had them and they lasted for years. My sister used to wear her`s to school with her frilly dress and cut-offs underneath. Not sure who made them, but there were similar to Whites.

My big brother's Honda 50

I saw this thread a few months back and wondered if we had any old pics of the first motorcycle I rode solo. I remember my brother sitting behind me as we did laps around the buildings on the family ranch... About the 5th or 6th lap I came around the shed to see him standing there - he had just stood up and got off the bike and I hadn't even noticed.

This photo is several years before that when the bike was fairly new; it was always my brother Alan's motorcycle but, as you can see, he was good about sharing the fun. This photo was taken in 1964, and was probably an early 60's vintage Honda 50 Super Cub. Brother Alan is in front, and sister Karen is making sure I don't fall off.



I was a little surprised, when I started riding (again) a year ago, how much I love it; guess some things just don't change.
