I loved my old XV920. I couldn't imagine a better bike for me to start on.

Thanks again guys. I've always got the creative juices flowin'. Check out the pics I just posted in the Yamaha gallery and you'll get a better understanding of what I mean. I love scaring the crud out of cagers when I get the thing to backfire. Get them thinking that the rounds are going off! Heh, heh!! (evil laugh) :twisted:

Ah, my first bike. After I got out of the military I decided I wanted a motorcycle the only problem being my folks forbid it, but I figured I'd work on that little problem after I bought the bike, arrived home (maybe they wouldn't notice it!) and then tell them when it's too late. ;) (what a cunning plan!).

So, I picked up a 1984 Honda Magna V30 in 1993. (funny fact: After 13 years it's still the newest bike I've owned).

Pretty sweet bike. I feel in love with the rear tail and the fact it could out accelerate a corvette. :D (ya, I was a budding squid and didn't know it!).

Sadly, the cunning plan didn't work out and sooner than you could say "shazam!" I had no choice but to resell the bike. :(

The only cruiser I owned but what a cruiser. :D

75 Honda CB360T. I ran this til the wheels literally fell off and never stuck a dime into it. This was back in mid to late 70's and it is just by stupid blind luck that I didn't kill myself on it many times over.
