Adopted at 10 and dad had a Honda Trail 90 he used to ride around the ranch and feed lot Let me ride and saw it was my thing and got me a Yamaha Motocross bike and put me to racing which lasted 11 years. Had a Honda 160 at 11 and at 13 moved up to a Honda 305 Super Hawk, what a cool bike. Moved to a CB350 for High School and then a CB750 still racing but with Suzuki. Then was next to an accident (the guy got ran over) in my MGB and went home and sold all street bikes keeping my two dirt bikes. Also rode some of the 3 cylinder Kaw's, they were dangerous and I know why the 750 was called the widow maker, hard to keep the front wheel on the ground! Quit for 20 some years. Got back in when I bought my VTX 1800C. Still have but the wife finally decided to go for a ride and she was hooked, so I bought a Goldwing for her comfort. Loved it all and will alway keep my X and will always have a Wing. Still have the dirt bike, but don't ride it any more. As the old ad states, "You meet the nicest people on a Honda!"
