    My first “real” motorcycle...circa 1972...I was ten...didn’t know or care anything about ATGATT then! Bonus points for the first one to ID that powerhouse of a motorcycle... 02C05AB4-3F7A-41F0-84CC-91CB595BBD47.jpeg

    In 1984 I had a Yamaha 750 Special, lots of hair, and lots of attitude. Now that everything is COVID-closed, I have the same hair style. Just not as much attitude. :)
