So what is your birth year bike?

In the interests of friendliness the youngsters can also post non classic pics (just this once) :lol:

*Although technically, the R75/5 was born a year before I was, and the actual bike in the pic was born a year after.

(unfortunately, my favorite bike, the Kawasaki Z1 was 1972 so I couldn't use that, although, the 1972 model year was in 1971).

Changed! :D Well, it was wishful thinking to keep Calgary there as I thought I would be returning but it looks like it's Houston, TX for me next. A little less than 2 weeks till our move there... crazy!
