Ok I lied on the survey my first "street bike" was a black 1975 XLCH Sportster. It was brand spanking new off the showroom floor at Harley Davidson of San Antonio, Texas. I had just turned 16. I had worked in the oil field 2 summers to get the money.

first was a 1966 305 scrambler bought in 1972 running on one cylinder, fixed it, all rice burners until 5 years ago when i got my 1997 hugger 883 along with a new leftover cb 1100 classic, real chrome fenders, then a 1998 sportster 1200s last week, 3 bikes in the garage, liked every one of them, leaning toward sportsters right now, they fit me good, older are lighter and easier for my tired old body to muscle around.like carburetors with a petcock and accurate reserve fuel.
