First bike was a Suzuki PE 175. Forget what year it was. '89?....

About 16 years ago at an off-road Toys For Tots ride.

Next was a '93 Honda XL250R, dualsport (made for mostly off-road)....

About 11 years ago at Marienville Trails in the Allegheny National forest.


Then a '01 Kawasaki KLX 300R....

About 4 years ago. Don't remember where I took this one.

Then the '99 Vulcan 750....

About 5 years ago. Along Skyline Drive. A 3 day, 1000+ mile ride.

My bike before the Vulcan was, well, a bike! Pedal-type, that is. Sadly, my legs of steel have turned into legs of spaghetti.

The journey is the destination.

Nope, my mistake. It's a "your first bike thread."

Yeah, I posted ALL my bikes in that one too
Seems as though I'm getting a good case of CRS syndrome. I have different years for the PE and XL ??!!

My Vulcan is probably the first bike that I've owned that "counts". Before this, I owned a 1973 CB350 that some moron stripped the shift lever splines off of, so I never really did get it running again before SWMBO gave it away because a) she was sick of motorcycle parts in the house and b) we were moving.
