I learned to ride on what I knew as a Honda 160 Dream in the early '70s, but my first bike was a new 1978 Yamaha XS650 Special. I put 500 miles on it the first week. 38,000 miles and 2-3 years later I upgraded to a KZ1000ST. Many no bike years and a succession of bikes later, My '08 Shadow Spirit lost a short argument with a misguided pickup truck. My eBay '11 Suzuki V Strom 650 is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, hoping to get that #$&! metal plate out of my right wrist soon.

My parents said my first bike was a red mini bike powered by a briggs engine. I don't remember it according to them it was early 80's. First bike I purchased was in 1997 it was a 1975 Kawasaki KE 100. Purchased it as an xmas gift for a girlfriend because she was giving me a leather coat and i didn't know what to get her. Thought it was a good starter bike for someone who had never ridden before. Never really thought of owning or riding a motorcycle but that all changed with an impulse purchase in 2018 a shadow spirit 750.

64' 50cc (at least that's what the auctioneer said) Allstate scooter with a 3sp. manual foot shift on the floor. A rare beast as finding pic's online of that exact model so far, no go. All I could find of that variation was a 125cc but... Ah the summer of 69'!
