Suzuki 550. Good starter but was ready for something much bigger after the summer was over. Went to a Suzuki 850 and it was like driving a Cadillac.
Riding a 1700 Yamaha now. I'm in heaven. :D

1st bike was a 1967 Honda 90. Drove it every day to and from work for 3 years. Took a beating and kept on going.

Thanks Bubba. I'm having a blast riding 'er and doing various mods. Yamaha sure does make nice bikes. I'm sure you agree. :D

Back in 1970 this was my first ride. Bridgestone 100. Largest bike a 15 year old could legally own.

2005 Honda Shadow Spirit VT750. Black Image
I kinda miss it. I learned how to ride on it. Had the guy at the dealership give me a rundown on where everything was and how to ride it. It's a great bike and it quickly became my main mode of transportation I just out grew it and recently traded it in for an 04 VT1100 Sabre. I know it's a year older but it had less miles and it's bigger. That and since I'm going to MMI once I graduate it's going to be my 1st chopper

1971 Honda SL125 -- spent many a day putting around the woods at 15mph. I think I was the only kid in my high school who rode a motorcycle to school -- and wasn't cool :laughing:

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

Mike.
