43, I bought my first Bike with my very first job's pay check! My Mother told me year, after year, after year.... during my troubled youth ("I WILL NEVER BUY YOU A DIRT BIKE!"). God bless your DAD! My son also will have every available opportunity to excel in any endeavorer in which he wishes to pursue. He passed away when I was 14. I think that is the first time I ever thanked him. He got me a Honda 50 when I was 9 followed by a Kawasaki 100 then another. After that he was gone. I took over from their. Made the biggest mistake of my life and got an ATC200. Dumped that and got a 89 CR250 then a 92 RM250 to a 89 RM125 to a 96 KX250 to a 87 CR250 to now. Their were some gaps in their thats why the years and sizes of the bikes jump around. I am sucker for a good deal.
