first motorized thing on two wheels was some old yamaha moped that i got for free. Someone left it in my garage and i didnt know anything about it. It ended up getting stolen and i just felt like i had passed along my free find to someone else. Had a flat head screwdriver for a key and no muffler. Second bike was an 82' Yamaha seca 4000 that i got for $150, with a full tank of gas. That was the negotiation. It was a great bike for the money and was a lot of fun. Plenty of power to get me in trouble for a dumb college kid. Sold the Seca to a friend for the same price, hoping he'd use it as a learner and keep it within the circle, well the little **** ended up selling it somene for 850 bucks and bragged that i got gyped etc. ended up buying an 07 zzr600, great bike. put 16000 miles on it in 5 months till a truck pulled out in front of me. Took the money from the insurance company, cleaned out my saving and went and bought an 08 orange/black.
