first motorcycle you ever rode

Post by motorbike » Tue Mar 26, 2013 4:45 pm

Got a wave of nostalgia after a few pints last night and remembered my mate Andy gill teaching me how to ride his hand painted honda 90 ....God that feeling of moving forward under power as I slipped out the clutch for the first time.....that started a life long habit.......

Yamaha yz125, nearly crapped myself when it took off. For some reason I thought my first road bike, a DT50mx was going to be similar...how disappointing. :blink:
