    What was your first bike

    I was reading through a few threads and wanted to comment on a few of mentions of their first bike but I did not want to hijack the thread. I want to know what your first bike was. My Dad taught me to ride on his 1966 Honda 160 Dream when I was 12 ( he had the 305 dream when I was younger). The first bike I owned was a 1973 Kawasaki G5 100 that I thought was the greatest thing on God's green earth until I bought my 1974 Honda CR125 Elsinore. I wish I had pictures of them but I don't, if you have pictures of yours please post them.

    My first bike was a 1957 Triumph Tiger Cub, 250cc. I have a pic. somewhere but it's in an album that my elder sister has. The bike was lots of fun, but if you tried to run it at anything over 50mph for more than a few minutes, the engine would temporarily sieze. Next bike was a BMW R-50 and I have has a BM (now a R-65) in the garage pretty much since then.

    My first bike was a 1954 NSU Quick - a 98 cc moped built around a motorcycle style frame. Mom, Dad and I each chipped in $55.00 to pay for the machine the first weekend in June 1960. It was a birthday present for me later that month. I literally rode the wheels off that bike - longest run was 5 hours 45 minutes from Saskatoon to Regina at about 30 mph. It would go about 35 or 40 with a wind and slight down hill.nsu__quick_98_1952_3_lgw.jpg

    Mine did not have the passengers seat but this 1952 gives you an idea

    When you are older than dirt, Wikipedia doesn't list my first motorcycle.

    A Honda CB 350-(I couldn't afford the CB 750 as a young sailor.) Drove that thing from one end of California to the other several times. It vibrated so bad that if I went on a long trip, I could hardly get off it, my body was so numb.

    That wonderful little Honda CL70 was my first. It was a fantastic learning tool, about bikes and freedom. Man I had a lot of fun on that thing!

    "You meet the nicest people on a Honda" was their advertising slogan in 1963.

    First bike I ever rode was a Yamaha Roadliner. 1800cc's was more than enough for someone who had only ridden a 50cc scooter! First bike I bought was a Suzuki GS500F. It was a good bike but I'd always ride past great dirt roads and get sad knowing I couldn't exlore them on it. Sold that and rode an r6 for a while, and ended up with the TW. Now between that and the Versys I can explore just about anywhere!
