    Started riding back in July of this year. This was the day after I got it, with my dad playing the "coach" role in the background.

    My second bike. Sold it for a $150 and my goal is to have one like it back in the garage by the end of next year.

    Here is my first streetbike, a 1975 Honda CB360T. I custom painted it with a japanese rising sun motif, K&N Clubman Bars, 2 into 1 header, etc. I beat the crap out of it, lol.

    I was surprised to see a bike like this earlier in the thread. A Harley Davidson M50. I guess I was about 12 when I started riding it in the trails around my house.

    1974 Kawasaki 100. My pride and joy when I got it at age 14. Look how shiny those chrome fenders are!

    A little more contemporary than a lot of pictures in here, but the hair seems par for the course :lol3. And don't let the stoic look fool you, I was very excited to get on my first street bike.

    I need to find a pic of my first bike but until then, figured I'd post up a pic of my son's first one. Got this used for his 5th birthday, took the training wheels off of it for his 6th. No stopping the kid now...:D
