My first bike was a little Honda 50, one with the knobby wheel barrow tires. Used it to pull a wagon loaded with my tools when I worked in a salvage yard after school and summers as a teenager.
My first street bike was a KZ400. I put 100,000 miles on that bike and sold it for the same amount I paid for it. Didn't want to sell it, but starting a family and had bills to pay.
The Sportster was a friend's wife's bike, and when she passed he put it up for sale. I'd ridden the bike a couple times when I was up visiting them and was impressed with it, so I bought it.
