First bike i rode was a Honda trail 70.
First Bike I owned 1985 Honda XL600R(4-stroke kickstart dual-sport)
First bike I fell in love with was my 82 GL1100i

I love motorcycles, I have had no less than 10. I really like my Harley's but currently have none. The Shadow I own looks and sounds so good, it will be hard to part with.

My first new motorcycle was a Honda 70 my dad bought new in 1970. Before that it was a Wards mini-bike. Since then they have been many....
I still wanna go fast. As soon as I get up from my nap...

Well, there you go. A guy never forgets his first motorcycle or the first girl he kissed! (Sorry ladies, I know you remember the first guy you kissed, too!)

Let's see... 1978 Honda CB550K was my first bike. Got it and my MC license in 1979. I then went to a 1979 CX500 and then migrated to Gold Wings as I had gotten hooked on taking long distance trips. First wing was a 1979 GL1000, then a 1984 GL1200 Aspencade, and finally my first and only brand new wing, a 1990 GL1500SE that I still have today. My wife decided to start riding her own a couple years ago and got her first bike in 2010, a new leftover 2009 Aero in which she has put 15K miles on and climbing!

Oh, and that first kiss? Her name was Kathy. I wonder what ever happened to her?
2009 Shadow Aero, the wife's ride (sometimes mine, too!)

My main ride, 1990 GL1500SE

My first ride was some kind of scooter Vespa like. Then it got stolen. And my desire to purchase motorcycle was supported by friends stables:

CZ 500 (actually it was more of Jawa)

And K750 which was actually a BMW which was build from German parts

And my personal first motorcycle is my Aero
I'm not a spamer, im flooooooder
First 10 miles long journal

'04 Aero 750 | '02 VTX1800R

1972 Yamaha 60cc mini enduro. Been riding ever since. About 25 bikes since.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming, "Wow, what a ride!"
