    On my grandfather's 68 Honda 125 Scrambler. Soon afterwards I bought a beat to death 160 Scrambler and rode everywhere on it, on and off road.
    A tribute to dad and grandfather who taught me to ride in '67 at age 15, at age 60 I'm still going strong.

    Circa 1965, me on the right sitting on the Suzuki 125 I learned on. My brother on the Honda Trail 90 we shared.

    I started riding in my 20's. Picture of me with my oldest son, on my first Harley. I'd just come back from a week-long trip. Was tired & the bike was still "pinging", but it was a GREAT ride.

    ..but still the 1st time I ever sat on my OWN motorcycle back in Sept. 2009.
    Put over 60K on it since...One word: Hooked. Better late than never. I got some catching up to do, and loving it!

    I think I posted this somewhere else on here during the past year, but this is the earliest photo I've got. About 1971, Honda CL100, my first real motorcycle, there were mini-bikes with lawnmower engines before this... :lol2
