Re: Where did you come from.
This thread has been started like 8 months ago, and only one reply??
Really? I sure hope some will share with us their bike genealogy! We all started somewhere, we all had our first love, (bikes!!! keep it there!!!) where more than impressed or even jealous of a friends... you know, bike! Am not able to post pictures here, as my pc. is down, but here are a few words, about where i come from: First bike was a 68 cc , two speed bike that i got after working 2 1/2 months summer break when 13 years old. Was the envy of the neighborhood, but tend to believe i deserved it! Later came the 125cc, 175cc and a restored 350cc two cylinder rebuilt, one year older than me. They were all Jawa bikes. At 24 got my first 900 cc Yamaha Seca. A gorgeous bike, but with some manufacturing flaws, and was stolen from me, before something major happened. Next was a 1985 Yamaha FJ 1100. Was looking for a GPZ 750 or even 1000cc. but the Yamaha dealer convinced me to get the first generation FJ, the 1100 cc. From there to the FJ 1200cc and after a few years break. Back to bikes on a 2007 Triumph Sprint triple 1050 cc. And now, as am at the end of the riding ability, have a 2008 rt. Always wanted a boxer engine, but at twice the price of other bikes that offered more, never had the chance. So finally am riding a bike i never thought will ever have the privilege to ride.
Next i will post some pictures, when i get back my pc. I hope you guys will go on, and show "where you come from" as your bikes!
