When I was young my uncle took me for a ride on his harley. It was tons of fun. The noise, wind and getting pushed into the back seat ( at all of 10 mph LOL ) After this ride "my eyes opened" I was seeing bikes everywere!

Then years later I was able to ride a 250 dirt bike a flog it around. After I felt more comfortable on that bike I picked up a late 80's ex500. That is when I learned about carbs and how bikes worked. After that was a Honda Interceptor VF500F ( it was a move up in power ) and now I have my ST3. I ride every day rain or shine and love it!

My car has not moved for months and may not untill fall when the weather cools down a bit and I can start working on it again...

I love every aspect of riding. and I am starting to think that I need to pick up a Ninja 250 and race that bad boy...

^^ Man, I wanna ride a ST675 sumtin fierce!!


I've grown up around bikes. My dad's probably ridden more than 500,000 miles (probably a low-ball estimate, too). I guess it's just in my blood. I've ridden every since I can remember. I still remember the first time I rode my little Z50. I was a happy lil camper, to say the least.

I had just checked off "learning to play guitar" a couple years prior and the next thing on the list of things to do before death was learning to ride a motorcycle, that was a year and a half ago ... now I have two bikes and am addicted to track riding ...

Now ... why was learning to ride on the list in the first place? When I was in grade school, my best friend's parents both rode and they would often take me to places (my parents didn't know of course) with him on the back of his mom's bike and me on the back of his dad's ... it was so cool I knew then on it was something I wanted to do ... 20 some years later I finally got to it and haven't looked back since.

My cousins had a little dirt bike out in "the country." When we would go visit them I would ride that thing all day. I've always liked motorcycles. Now I want to go fast like Valentino Rossi .

at first it was cool to have and it still is...you become one of the few that has something different and walk your own path. then when you get on MH its a whole different comunity where you get to learn more than just getting on your bike and pose its about enjoying the ride no matter what you ride. Dont forget to ride safe one day and live to ride again another.

Always liked motorcycles. But at first I wasn't really into sport bikes. Living in Germany in the 90's we use to go to the track to see the different races. Then one weekend they had the motogp races and saw Kevin Schwantz. Have been into sport bikes since then.

Rode dirt bikes all my youth. Had my first cb, a little 125, at 14. Also had a long running subscription to cycle trader when I was like 7 or 8. I remember just sitting there and staring at the pictures in my parents' old house.

I took a nice 10 year break from like 19 to 28 or so. Why? The cops in my family scared it out of me? I was a walking as far as bikes go. I dunno. I always wanted one, I think I was just scared of people running me over.

Started riding again last April and I've done about 18k miles since. =)


edit: Oh yea. Found my old cb125 =) http://www.caferacer.net/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=7617

Gonna start fixin her up at some point.

For me it was the xcitement i got out of going to the race track and seeing the way all of the bikers talked and showed a comraderie with each other. Once i turned 18 everyone was like ur too young you're going to kill yourself. When i turned 21 i was too busy payin for college and a place to stay. Now that im 23 i said to with it i cant wait anymore and now im currently about to purchase my first bike next month...plus i like to go fast and girls dig em lol!

Because so many other people don't have the guts to get to the glory that is the one-ness with the road, and because of the excitement and fun of it. (but then, I don't commute...). Also, like a good cigar, you can't really be doing much else while riding other than riding, so it's kind of therapy for me.

I waited way too long to actually buy the thing, but had some powered toys when I was younger, and couldn't get enough of them. Had a a Briggs/Straton-powered one back in 5th grade... and a Honda moped later (raffle), bicycle racing after that, and then let life take over...
