Another young guy here, only 45.

First bike was a CT-70 at about 12 years old. (It sill runs and me and my kids ride it sometimes when we visit my parents)

Next was an early 70's SL-125, then an early 70's Harley-Davidson 125 "Rapido ?" that my dad bought as a basket case, rebuilt and presented to me on Christmas morning. Then the first new bike I ever bought, a '74 125 Elsinore.

I started riding on the street with my dad's Suzuki 750 "Water Buffalo" at age 16. The first street bike I bought was an early '70s XS650 which I traded in for a brand new '82 GS-550E (super little bike).

I sold the GS-550 in about '89 and have been bikeless until last year when I bought a '71 cb350 with the intent of cafe-ing it. I got talked out of that because everyone said it was in too good a shape to mess with.  So I bought a CB450K7  to cafe, and the 350 in now my "semi" daily driver.

Hopefully the 450 will be finished before too long and I'll be able to share some pix with the group.

Cheers,  CC

Thought this thread had gone to the thread graveyard but I guess not.   I'm now heading for 64 but still have that giddy 10 year old seeing a Manx for the first time in me.  Got my Weslake 500 sidecar finished and out to El Mirage.  Like the name of this forum it did the ton at 107.395.

Get off yer ass and do something.   I've been on bikes for almost 50 years and just wish I could do it all over again.   Its been a trip.  You can always get another bike or another girlfriend but you don't get time.  Use it or lose it.

People get maddest when I've told the truth.

Next year I officially begin aging in reverse.

I figure when I was in my early 20's, I sort of got my shit together and started working etc.  So when I'm 40, I figure I'll start counting backwards back to 20.

When I hit 20 for the second time watch out - lock up your daughters and clear the streets, 'cause I'll be on the loose.  You're all relatively safe for the next 21 years (unless you ride within 20 feet of me, in which case, based on recent events, you're riding at your own risk ;))
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."
