That's why you tuck in behind a big rig! It was my first bike as well. I killed that thing in 6K miles blasting up 45 drafting anything moving faster than I was. By itself I could only get up to 62-67 (depending on wind direction) flat out with full tuck behind the windscreen, but with a good sized dually I could follow it up to 75. Poor valves never stood a chance.

I looked like a fool on it too. 6'4" and 218lb MF with reflective vest. My legs would get so cramped I would bump back onto the pillion to stretch them out. Good memories, but I'm glad they're memories.

Harley Davidson FXDWG

My 1st bike EVER was a 1986 Honda Z50.

The 1st bike I ever bought for myself was a 1979 Harley Davidson that I picked up for $2500, rode it home, and began to tear it apart and rebuild it. She was ugly as sin but ran well. That (as they say) was the beginning of a LONG list of bikes since then, and I guess it was about 8-9 years ago.

1983 Hawk 450: not too horrible for almost 30 years ago. Easy to work on and slow enough to not need real tires, brakes, or suspension. my first streetbike, with the most memories. I can still almost smell, taste, and feel what it was like that first hot summer of freedom....summer 1990, 19yrs old.

Faster and Faster, Slowly! BRAWP it like its hot, BRAWP it like its hot.
