Many of us, myself included, twisted our first throttle on this one. Great memories of how exciting it felt.

Is that the Yamaha 60 Mini-Enduro? I had a 1972 model. Don't think I have any pictures of the original, though. Great memories of racing some friends on their Honda CB 90 around their grandfather's farmyard (they had already worn out 2nd gear because that was about the only gear they used on the track, until they couldn't anymore). I learned a lot of skills that I still put to use on my GS! Met my first hot chick who even seemed to be interested in return (their cousin). Must have been the cool bike!

My first bike was a Harley Sprint 350 in 1974. I only had it for a month. Parts were not easy to find. No pictures are available. This is a very loose interpretation. : >)

I think these photos are from '73 or '74.

A Mini-Trail 50 my Grandfather bought me after the first one was stolen.



Here's one of me and my old lady with my first chopper. Note the high performance electrical tape wrapped around those ape hangers.

Not even sure how old I was in this picture. I had minibikes prior to this, but this was my first motorcycle. 1973 Harley X-90.



It is still around and I am starting to do a restoration on it as of yesterday.
The blue one is the one in the picture above and the silver is a parts bike I picked up cheap.



After day one...

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!

I started with this beauty - a '83 50ccm 2stroke Simson S51 B2-4.



the picture was taken in 2001, after I drove about 180km (~112,5 miles) to visit my city of birth at the age of 16.
