First bike was at 5,a nice little Honda 50. First big bike was at 17, 1952 Harley Davidson Panhead. The most recent bike is my GSXR. Woke up one day and decided to buy a sportsbike. I called every dealership intown to get the lowest price on one, and bought it that day. You can say I am a very compulsive buyer.

First 3 bikes were given to me.

age 5 was a jr 50
few years later i got the hammi down 80
got my first street bike when i turned 13 or 14. 1981 cb125 (awesome bikes haha)
Does my brother's old 91 super magna count? haha. Used to ride his around a bit when I was younger.

I rode friends' bikes throughout the years, but never got my own again until early last year.

I knew I wanted a magna, and it probably took me 6 weeks or so to find the one I wanted. Got her about a week before I took MSF.

I'd still have that one, but her and my shoulder just didn't get along at all.

I bought my first streetbike at 18 (1972 KZ400) and have been going up since then. I have had Harleys, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda and now my current GSXR. I have owned everything from nekkid to turbo to cruiser to full-dress to my Gixxer. This is my 15th bike in 25 years.

35 years give or take. I mean between the time they built it at the Meriden factory and when I took delivery...

Or 25 years, from the time I decided I wanted a bike till when I bought it. However the farsighted folks at Triumph had actually already built it for me ten years before I decided I wanted it... Clever, those guys.
