My first roadbike I've owned was a 86 SRX600 I later tricked out and messed it up. It now sits in a barn in NJ . I do miss her .

'76 CJ360, kick start only (no provision in the case for a starter even), flat bars and some kind of rear set...I had no clue at the time. I stripped everything off that bike I could, hogged out big holes in the hub sides because that's what all the cool old bike I saw in pictures had. High sided from hitting the horrible factory 2-1 collector and after fixing (read: cobbling the poor thing together) ran straight pipes. Neighbors loved that....

I miss that little piece of shit...

1966 Honda CB160. Bought it out of a storage shed for $50 bucks in 1992 and I still have it. Has a rear sprocket the size of a dinner plate, high pipes with no mufflers and a top speed of 55mph.

1985 Honda VF500F.

Surprised I didn't kill myself on it.
An 84 was my second street bike (an 86 was my third.) I'm quite surprised I am still here as well. Very forgiving bikes.

Didn't own it, but the first bike I put any real miles on was a Kawi 500 triple...around 1974. Boy did I let the good times roll.
