my father used to take me on the back of his hd as soon as i was old enough to hang on, there has been nothing better in my memories as a child than being dropped off at my first day of school on the back of his hd, and being told, you will be right mate! ,except for my first sticky finger behind the lunch room, the only reason i remember is it was always school yard talk, stricko's dad has a hd and lots of tattoos,
so i guess its just my way of life now, i was born free.

been riding from grome size pee wee 50's to my stubbin i know what i want age now, have a rat turning 86 soft tail only buy natural causes, Triump 1200 1995 model Daytona riding almost daily as i am alway late to work and it gets me there on time, also a KTM 525 04 EXC with a rekluse auto cluch for mud adventures, so me thinking it is time to update the faithful old anti chick magnet softail for a nice polished chop or pro street, so so here i am getting lots of good ideas

I had my first ride on a Harley when I was 8yrs old and never forgot that feeling. My ex had a Rebel (young and poor...all he could afford) but it wasn't the same...maybe just because he scared the crap out of me....anyway...my current honey of 13yrs...was doing a conversion on his bike when I met him, and I couldn't wait for it to be put back together. He taught me to ride a dirt bike (I found the bushes all by myself when he said "oh, and there's no rear brake only front brake"...I'm sure you know where I'm going).... He handed me the title of a 89 883 back in 95 and now it's a 1200 with a custom paint job that I get teased for (It's cranberry and fades to white) but it's mine and I don't have to ride on the back with anyone anymore. Now we have the 2 sporty's, a 48 Pan, a Triumph and a BSA. Of my 5 kids, 4 can ride dirtbikes. The youngest rider got his for his 4th birthday. Hoping to give them the same love we have if they're interested.

mom and dad said "no long hair and no motorcycles till your 18 and moved out".
turned 18, moved out, quit getting hair cuts, and bought a 1973 750 Norton Commando.
learned how to ride, on the way home.

this was in 1975

Rode a Vespa around my friend's condo building (round and round and round). Then when I turned 18, I had to get my own bike (grew up in Hong Kong) and you had to be 18 before you could legally ride but with lots of restrictions.

Still riding after 30+ years.

jimbo.. you are a nut case to buy a Commando and learn to ride it on the way home. I remember testing out a Combat for a friend but that was in the condition that I did not have to kick start it. What was 'fun' was riding with the brakes/gear shift on the reversed side.... I remember riding that thing hunched over and just praying it did not die on me as I was so terrified of kick starting it.

Always rode some sort of bike when I was a kid, scooter, dirt bike, one of them small Yamaha's. Always liked the choppers I'd seen too when I was a kid growing up, liked Harleys and said one day when I could afford it I'd have a Harley, the chopper was an after thought but I'm glad I got it. The first real motorcycle I had though was a 87' Honda Magna 750, rode that one quite a bit with just a permit, dumped it one time and gave up riding for a while. Got back into riding just last year, after a 8yr break and got all my proper endorsements, insurance, etc. I ride now, even in the rain though some say I'm crazy, this more than I drive my car, 3yr old car with only 12k on the odometer. Harley less than a year old with almost a 1/4th of that mileage already on it, and the chopper is about half of what the Harley is in mileage, so you can see the obvious choice.
