Lets bring back some old memories... Share your story about your first bike and first ride. I was 7 years old. Big brother bought me a brand new Honda mini-50 for Christmas. sat on it in the livingroom till the snow melted about a month later... LONG WAIT!!!!!! First ride. All the family was there, including the landlord. Fired that bad boy up. Yeee Haw! Started going through the gears and hit the landlord's new truck broadside at about what seemed like Ludicrous Speed, probably about 10 MPH. Blam! Lesson learned. Don't forget to turn or stop! Not my last crash on a dirt bike! But got them all out of the way. Never been down on the street!
