My first motorcycle I believe was a 1981 Honda CB650, it was in poor condition and only ran for a couple weeks, but I’ll never forget those weeks. All that power just by a twisting you wrist! What a feeling.
When the 650 broke down I got a dirt cheap 80s Honda Aero 80. Riding a scooter is quite different than a motorcycle, but just as fun. I remember putting a gallon of gas in it and driving all week.
After selling the scooter I left the country for a couple years and was without bike until I ended up at school in California. There I picked up a brand new 2002 Honda Shadow Spirit 750. What a bike it was! My first new bike and I’ll never forget riding along the coast. That bike would be my transportation and recreation for about 7 years.
The next bike in the stable was a Skyteam 125 replica of a Honda Z50. Chinese manufactured but surprisingly fun running. (That’s the bike my sone is on).
1980 CB750 Custom
2001 Royal Enfield Bullet 500 (right foot shift)
2015 Honda Grom
So many bikes so little time.
Now I want a Honda CMX 500 Rebel. 😜
