the RGV wasn't even legal in my country during the time I owned it. So I constantly had to get chased by cops every time I took her out.

Not the actual pic, but I had a Honda 90 (same color) when I was around 11 or 12 yrs old. My older brother and two cousins rode through the desert from Duncan AZ to San Samon AZ. Guess that's where I got my touring adventure bug from.

I layed that bike over more than a few times and it was built pretty solid. The enclosed drive chain was nice too. I still wish I had that thing sometimes.

My brother calculated the mileage on that desert trip and said it got 125mpg that day if I remember correctly. He knew how to tune anything up for optimal performance and mileage.

I had a lot of fun and good memories on that bike.

06' GSX-R 1000









Before riding a real street motorcycle I learned on a 2002 Honda XR 80, and also got to ride a 1998 Honda CR125. I ran the streets and trails of my neighborhood with a few friends that also had dirt bikes and four-wheelers.

The first SS bike I learned to ride was not mine, but a friends. This was 6-7 years ago while in High School. He went to jail for a good month or so while I kept her nice and sound. That whole month, I never rode above 90mph because I was scared shitless. I also didn't have a helmet or gear around that time.


This is the same bike, (Not my picture) but had an Akrapovic CF slip-on

1stbike zps2aa202fc


I found it to be an easy platform to learn on. I fell in love with riding it, but also had to part ways with it because of course the bike wasn't mine.

My first bike is my current and only bike. Purchased in March of 2011'
2006 GSX-R 1000

Had an 05' Honda CRF50, but just recently sold her.

04 Honda 599 (aka Hornet in Europe). I used a flash in this photo, so the reflective rim tape is bright. In normal light the color matched the other yellow on the motorcycle.

My first street bike was a GS550ES followed buy an FZR600 and a whole slew of GSXRs and a Ninja.

The below pic is not of mine, but closest I could find as it seems they are fairly rare with the lower main fairings.

Yessir! It was more for everyday cost and maintenance in the long run since I commute on it.
The ex hated the idea of me getting te 250. Haha! The 600 also had a lot of issues and I was kidding myself trying to work on it.
