I'll be 50 in December. I started riding street bikes in 1976. I've had 7 Kaw's, 3 Honda's, and  a Bultaco. My CB750K2 is #11
   
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."

18.

First road bike: 1975 CB360 (current project)

First bike: Keystone dual suspension minibike (if i find any pics ill post them, I still have this baby up at my uncle's)

Second bike: 1971 Kawasaki kv75 (BY FAR the most exciting bike of the bunch based on pure fun) http://www.cyclechaos.com/wiki/Image:1971-kawasaki-mt1.jpg

Then came the 2005 honda CRF 100F

Then the 2005 KTM 125 sx, a very quick machine, In fact I broke my wrists last season riding this beast *I tried doubleing two table tops all in one go, didnt end well :) *

In fact, If anyone has a old kv75 or mt1 (same thing) I may be willing to buy it off of you, I miss that bike SO bad!!!!

Just turned 44 two days ago. First bike was a 1970 Triumph Tr6 650. I bought it from the original owner for $600 when I was about 23. (I had ridden friends bikes previously) He interviewed me before he would sell it to me and I still get (and send) a christmas card every year. I put 10,000 miles on that thing. (i'm still vibrating and leaking oil by the way) I have had more than a few bikes since then including a "68 BSA 650 and a '74 RD 350 and I prefer the Jap bikes now. easier to work on and just as fun. AND I don't feel guilty cutting them up and making something new from them. I'm not sure I could do that to an old Brit bike. I would love an old Ducati

I currently ride;

'72 Cl450
'72 CB350F

and I am working on "72 Yamaha R5

I have a few other wrecks I've collected awaiting attention as well.
