What's a real bike? I was 8 when I got my first bike but I don't know if it counts as real...
I'm sure nobody is going to accuse the souped up yz250 I had at 16 of not being real, though. That one I bought with my own money from a friend of my dad's who needed money real bad (so I got it cheap). Unfortunately I let a girl ride it and she blew the engine (love makes you do stupid things).
got my first dirtbike when I was 7 it was a honda trail 70 didnt take much to convince them all my cousins had bikes got my first streetbike when I was 16 it was a honda cb360 it took alot of convincing had to pay for that one myself when I turned 17 I bought my 82 cb900f that I still own the payments were $78.00 dollars a month the insurance was $84.00 dollars a month because they made me put it in my name my parents still hassle me today about my cbr900rr
well, my mom and dad hate motorcycles...i was with a girl for 8 yrs who hated motorcycles....when we broke up, i started saving, finally a week before my 32nd Bday last year, I bought my bike.....better late than never.
18 years old, Suzuki sv1000s, awesome v-twin. I dropped it once in my garage and put a quarter size dent in the gas tank. Total noob move. Three months later I had my first track day, Streets of Willow, tucked the front into the right hand bowl. That was fun, bike was Ok, and I was addicted to motorcycles.
21 for me, ninja 250 (09), took a little convincing for my parents (since I had to get them to let me keep in the garage since I live at home while I'm still in school), but I pretty much told them I was getting it and did
I was 21 and i had to convince my mom it would be fiscally beneficial for my 60mi/day commute over my 1967 14mpg Buick.. she rides too now btw. oh and the old man.. yeah i'm pretty sure he's still ****ed. It was a 1982 Yamaha Maxim 500
I was 21 when I got my first bike. I argued the fiscal responsibility bit (which in my case worked because I got a GZ250). I also bought a full face helmet and armored leather riding jacket and took the MSF course to show I was going about riding responsibly.
