I had the old school stingray with the 2 speed rear axle... the 5 speed was the new bike.. never got one of those.. my first one never died and was stolen at least 3 times..

I think the briggs mini bike is what hooked me on 2 wheels however.. figured out how to bypass the rpm governor and I was gone..

Had to hunt for a pic.
This is it, wasn't my bike. He let me take it around the block, loved it. Then my neighbor was riding it around the hood guess a fuel line broke an it caught on fire while he was riding it. the passengers hair caught on fire cause she was on the back, she did the old "bail, stop, drop, an roll.:laugh: And he kept on riding it still a blaze for another block an rode it off an embankment into a lake to put it out. After seeing all the fun they were having on this thing I been a motorcycle lover. the three of us were laughing about this for many months. No real injuries, the girl's parents were a little pissed an curious about what exactly happened to their daughters hair.:rofl: ps He fished that thing out of the lake an had it running again in a couple of days an then the fun started all over again.:thumbsup:

My 1990 Honda CR80. Man I loved that bike. I was 13 years old when I got it. After 10 years of riding nothing, I rode a friends Ninja 600. Been hooked ever since.

growing up, we used to bike about 50 miles a week. Once I turned 16, I really wanted a motorcycle, but it took another 10 years before I had one. I took a spin on a friends 1980s era honda enduro...whithin a week, the Katana was mine.
