Pictures of you and your first bike.

Recommended Posts

I found this picture of my first bike. This is 1982 and that is a 1980 RM 80. My first scooter. Also you can see part of my dog Zeke, He was a redbone hound. I now have a Beagle named Zeke. just seemed like a good name for a hound dog.

I used to ride this bike everyday on our property and up and down Stillwater creek in redding, and out behind Viking wreckers, out by the old Lumberjack before they shut down that riding area.

Am just for the hell of it here is a picture of my dad in 1975? on his maico 490, with the low pipes, full leathers and open face helmet. Notice the hat on the dude in the back, seems like those were back in style a year or two ago.

If I remember correctly I had a Z50A, XR75, Harley Mini trail bike, DT100, and DT90 prior to this but I don't have any pics of them. This is my 1978 MR175 in 1980. I was 13.

Yes I do.

A Hodaka Ace 100 in the late 60's and 1970 250 Bultaco Pursang. Wouldn't they be fun in in the vintage races? :naughty:

During the early days I also had a 1973 & 1976 250 Bultaco Pursang, a 1972 Hodaka 125 and finally a 1973 175 Bultaco Pursang that my ex raced. Raced all in D-37 Desert and local SoCal MX.

Wish I still had all of those. :naughty:
