I got my first bike (Honda SL70) when I was nine. Learned that first day with a full manual clutch and never looked back. I loved it and that is all I ever wanted to do. If it were up to me we would have gone riding every weekend. My dad was not in love with riding like I was so our trips were fairly infrequent. One of the first things I did when I turned 18 was buy another dirt bike. I have had a few different bikes over the years and have my wife and kids riding. We take three and four day camping/riding trips with friends and they are always fun but they have not been something I yearn for. A couple weeks ago I finally bought an 09 WR450F and man I feel like I did when I was nine. The only thing I want to do is ride that bike. It feels like it fits me perfect and I love the power. I have only had it out a couple of times and I hate it when it is time to load up and come home. I haven't enjoyed a bike this much in years. I even told my wife I wanted to change jobs so I could have more time for riding. I only regret not buying it sooner.
