What Was Your First Motorcycle?

Post pictures of your first motorcycle. It does not have to be yours as long as it the same make, model, and from the era. Anyone still own their first bike? Here is mine. Good old Honda XR 80. I thought it was a rocket until I jumped on a KX 60. Kinda shows my age.

What a blast that little thing was. (picture = not mine)

I had a brand new LT 2 Yamaha I was 15 then, not alot of motorcycles around my area back then but they seem to catch on pretty quick. My next was a used 1978 YZ250, it was a rattler but run like heck, I was around 21 or so, then I had a Suzuki 370, suspension wasn't the best but what a mule!, then I had a new 1983 XR350R, heck of a bike, suspension for the time was great! Kids came along, sold it, sometime in my 30's I bought a 1980 IT 250, loved it! tore my rotator cuff with it, sold it, my son started riding so bought bikes for him, I bought a 2000 DR650 for on and off road, loved it sort of, off road it is way too big, and I'm a big person, regular trails its ok for anything tight it would work you to death. Now 55 I'm going back to a 1986 XR350R! Sorry to bend your attention for so long.
