My first Brand new bike. 1980 Honda 750F

God I loved that bike! I rode it year round here in NY. had many bikes before and after but this one remains special.



Like most riders of the day, I had to have a Kerker 4 into 1 exhaust.
White letter Dunlops and of course I had to paint the rotor centers red. You go faster with red paint!

Still have the MGB that you see here. My old man bought it new in 1979.
I drive it daily in the summer. I did sneak in a Rover 215 V8.

Are we sure this isn't a 350? I had one back in the day, but the memory isn't what it used to be.

My first motorcycle. I worked on the boardwalk in Seaside ,NJ all summer to save for it. Even forged my working papers to say I was 16 to get a job as a dishwasher.
1964 Honda Cub 50. Later I took the muffler off - saved my life riding around the church parking lot over and over and over....



The next year I worked bussing tables at a local diner sold the Cub and bought this 1968 Honda 350 from a guy leaving for Viet Nam. This was my typical riding attire and I didn't own a helmet. I even made a fake NJ license plate in metal shop and painted it yellow and black. I couldn't figure out how the cops knew I wasn't legit. Caught and escorted home with stern warning 8 times.
