    1994 Yamaha FZR-600, first new anything I had ever bought. Not my first bike, but the farthest back my photos go. We lost a bunch of old photos due to water damage.

    My first bike was Malaguti Grizzly my dad bought for me when I was 4 years old. I can remember the spring of the rear shok boke all the time because I did some jumping...or maybe I was too heavy :augie
    Unfortunatley I haven't got any original pics but the bike looked like this:

    Way back on post *11 is a picture of a Moto Skeeter which is exactly like my first one and I've never seen another one till now. It was a 2 stroke with a torque coverter and simply smoked every mini bike in our neighborhood.I mention this to other riders when we start reminiscing and nobody ever heard of one.

    This was 1966 in Naples FL. I had worked all the last summer to buy this 1965 CB77 and had ridden it from Montana to Connecticut and then to Florida. Camped all the way. Note the US Army issue saddlebags.

    Hey, R80ST, it looks like an Amazone (German moped from the 50ies). Is it one ?

    Is the grey bike on the right a Yamaha Seca 750?

    I had one of those in college and loved it!

    I narrowly avoided death on a 1987 YZ125 then graduated to a Buell Blast 500, which I don't have pictures of. I'm only 28 (geeze you guys are OLD!).

    I consider this my first real bike-

    We gone some places together, still got 'er too even as the "collection" has grown.

    But it all started with pops (thats me on the tank)-
