Just For Fun --- How OLD Are You?
« on: May 15, 2008, 19:46:40 »
Figured it would be interesting to see the age spand of the "cafe" world... maybe even include the age you started riding and your first and current bike... (could be a list for those that have a garage full)

Ill start (mine is prob the smallest and easiest list)

I am 20yrs old
First and only bike a Honda CB200
Started riding at 20!!!

30. Got my first bike when I was 15 as a gift from my parents; a 79 kz400 LTD for $400.00, and it only had 6k mi. on it. It was also my first attempt at a "cafe styled" bike when I was 17.

25, built the mini chopper in 2004.  Grew out of it fast as it wasn't fast enough (85 kmh).  Picked up a 78 XS650 in 06 and got it on the road on June 1, 2007, almost a year ago.  Parts/junker bikes, 79 XS400 and 68 CB450.  Got the second XS400 almost done.  74 MX250 is a "someday" project.  Dreaming of a big (1000 & up) XS, KZ or GS to add to the stable.

I guess you could say my first ride was on my dad's a CB550F when I was 3, but, do Honda's count? Lol, JK!  ;D

I'm 31 in August.  Started riding random junk dirt bikes, don't even know what they were because they were just that junked out that parts were missing, painted, jimmy rigged, etc, when I was about 9 or 10.  Didn't get my first "real" bike till I was 23.  It was an FZR600R, which was replaced by a GSXR1100 when it's oil pump went out at 8K.  Sold the Gixxer because I knew she was going to be the death of me and picked up my 77 kz650 three years ago.  She's been my only ride until this past year when I picked up the 81 kz650 (which is getting sold to finish funding the cafe build on the 77).

45.  My first motorized 2 wheeler was a mini-bike when I was 11.  Rode friends dirtbikes, mostly Hodakas until I got my first real bike, my brothers old Ossa 250(wish I had it now!)  Rode a few different bikes from 1977 to 1990, including 3 years in Germany(great riding in Europe ;D).  Started again in 2000 with my XS650, added my XS850 in 2006.
