Thought I'd start a thread about first bikes. What model, year etc. No need to list everything you've owned. Just the one you broke your cherry on.

Pics are a plus.

Not sure that I still have any pics of mine laying around but my first was a 1976 Yamaha XS650 twin I bought when I was 21. It had some crazy custom in-laid metal flake/flame paint job you'd only see in the 70's. It was a bit of a basket case but it was mine. Wrecked it around 35-40 mph 3 months after I got it and it was done.

I actually learned on a buddy's 81 cb400 Honda Hawk. Rode it around for a month or two before I bought the 650 twin.

Love it! So so true.
It was my first mod too. I lined up the front tire with tire tubes so the front wouldn't slip. I took off while the others just kept slipping...hahahaha
