Just curious, I was thinking about my first MC 35 years ago which was a Honda CT70 that my brother and I shared. We rode it every where and pretty soon anytime the neighbors :icon_blah called the police they would be waiting in our drive way waiting. Good times back then. :cheers: The cops would tell us not to do it and off they would go. Graduated to a Yamaha DT175 and was visited by the cops more frequently. The neighbors really were up tight back then. Now I am sure I would be in prison for riding without a license. :choppersm

Had one of those CT70's back when we were kids....But this here was my first street bike...

1973 Honda CB 350...



And through an odd twist of fate, I was able to go pick that exact bike up from my brother's place last summer and bring it home, along with a 1974 CB 450...

Well damn had to do some math on this one and came to the conclusion I've gotten old... :icon_no:

I've got about 37 years on two wheels, I was about 9 or 10 when my best friend got a trail70 that his dad taught us both to ride on. Then when I was 12 in I got my first ride it was a 1973 XR75, both of those poor bikes should have been called a Timex because they sure took a beating and kept on ticking... There's been so many different ones since then, both dirt & street I've lost track.

YZ...Damn those were light and fast. My second bike was a YZ125 around the same time. If I remember it was a D and not the X. It was a heck of a lot different from my 1F.

My first one was back in the 70's. It was a 1973 Honda CB125 that I bought from my brother. I had never ridden myself before. He gave me a few instructions about how to use the clutch and everything and off I went. This is a pic of what mine looked like. I rode it for a short time till my mother told me: " Now you know you can't put that baby on that bike; you need to get rid of it." That was in 1976 - had to sell it. My next bike was my 07 1300R I bought new in March of 08. I waited a long time for this one. Love it.
