Posted my avatar and profile picture.

Hey everyone. I posted a picture of me at age 6 with my second bike. It was a Honda mini trail 50 with a 70cc head. This bike was heavily modified and ran on alcohol. My first bike was an Indian MM-50.

Hahaha! I know, right? I didn't have helicopter parents. I have photos going back to when my dad used to ride me around on his Bultaco back when I was in diapers. I'd sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crossbar. He told me he'd have to push his bike down the alley and start it up when I took a nap if he wanted to ride alone. LOL. Myself and both my brothers all started riding solo at age 4. My Dad still blasts down fire trails at over 80MPH on a KTM 998 at age 70! We are a true motorcycle family.

Very cool picture! Obviously bikes were in your genes!
Now that would be a cool thread....pictures of peoples first bikes or the earliest experiences with bikes caught on film. Break out the scanners and the 35mm pics folks!

My Dads older brother is 75 years old and he's one of the most fearless riders I've ever met. Him and my Dad did the Alaska run five years ago. Both of them still do Iron butt rides. It's kinda funny. The younger riders seem to think they need to keep an eye on him and my Uncle and by the end of the event my Dad and Uncle are encouraging the younger guys to tough it out and work through it!! My Dad just sold his Ultra-Glide and bought a GS1200R.

I bet your Dad and Uncle have some awesome stories, I'd love to sit around and BS with them, just like old heads on the Railroad, I love hearing how it used to be!
