Young Riders: Do You Dare Post?

I will. Okay, this is not my motorcycle, but my older brother's: the first one I ever climbed and rode on. The shorts and sandals are mute testimony that it took me years to adopt the ATGATT philosophy.

Trivia question: What motorcycle is it?

Without a doubt the first and last time I was astride a motorcycle with two hot girls behind me. Fashionable eyewear must be the key to getting chicks.

My Dad had a Bultaco. Bitchin' pics. I don't have any pics of my early riding days.

I'm pretty sure it's a Honda by looking at the gas tank. It looks like a small version of the "Dream." I don't really remember the thing except for these photos, so I'm not sure what it was.

Unfortunately, I don't have any of myself on my own early bikes. I found these plundering through some stuff in the basement the other day.

I doubt if too many folks my age do. Back in those days, cameras and film were expensive and with us, reserved for "special occasions" like graduations, the purchase of a new used car, etc.

Affordable digital cameras and phone cameras in this day and age are a great thing and allow people to snap away at anything and everything.
