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. :(

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.

Wow, hard to remember. And sorry no pics. In somewhat order:

Suzuki TS-185
Kawssaki 350 (two stroke triple S2?)
" " 500 (two stroke triple)
" " 750
Norton Comando 850
Yamaha RD 400
Yamaha Seca 550
Kawasaki Vulcan 750
Yamaha FJR1300

Now mixed in there was a list of bikes I got to ride but did not "own" , because I worked for a shop for awhile and got to "borrow" used bikes that were for sale when I wanted to.
So I also got to spend some time with:
Triumph Bonniville
Honda CB750F
Suzuki 750 (Waterbuffalo)
Yamaha RD350
Kawasaki KZ900
and likely a few others that I can not remember............

My favorite was my race prepped RD400. Small , quick, and handled like it was on rails.
