First bike was a J Reg (1970-71) Honda SS50.. 50 quid with an MOT. Took awhile to save up for it! Insured and taxed it for the road on the 25th of Jan 1980.. I was 17. I got an erection the first time I rode on the road lol... Wish it was that easy now

My first bike was a Guzzi 100 cc (My Dad´s), I learned to ride when I was 7 y/o. (I am 54 now)

Then I had several Trial, Enduro and Moto-Cross.... I grew up in a farm, rural roads a lots of off-road space to ride. (Montesa, Bultaco, Ossa).

Now I am older and changed style ... now I have Customs. (Big Dog & Harley)
