Embarrassing pics of when you started riding

Just seeing if anybody wanted to share your pictures of when you first started riding.

I'll go ahead and throw myself under the bus. Check out the 10' table I was scared to death of! I did have a little McGrath style back then!!

Sweet, I went to a KX 80, then XR 200 with the dual carbs (twice the HP bro!), then into a RMX 250 at 14. It was a awesome bike and kinda when I started to understand about tuning and wrenching on bikes....

I dunno why i liked the mud when i was little. Now i hate it. I mean i am a great rider in it and usually do much better than others in the races but i hate cleaning it lol.p4260015k.jpg

Here is my antique contribution....it was the summer of 1980, and I am WFO on my 1980 Honda CR-80R on my small track that I built (mainly with a shovel!) at my parents house where I grew up here in Indiana. Nothing beats the smell of Castrol "R" and corn in the air!! Even though my jumps were shovel made, and riding gear I had on (a t-shirt and jeans) are embarrassing to look at now....those were some of the best memories I have of growing up!
