My first bike is also my current bike. 2002 VTX Retro Spoke 1800. I've put about 500 miles on it so far. Still getting the hang of it and taking it slow.

Very stylish first choice Chris. And taking it easy is clearly a good idea. A nice thing about a spoke retro is just how cool they look puttering along... with plenty of power lurking to scoot when you feel like it.

My first bike was an 83 Honda Saber V45. Great bike... and a great engine layout.

Next bike was the big brother to that one... a V65 Saber.

My first bike was a little yellow mini bike, had a pull start just like a lawn mower. Probably was a lawn mower engine. I was just big enough to ride it, but always had trouble starting it. Back then the whole family would go on a bike ride. Dad would ride one of his Honda 175's, mom rode a Honda 100, which eventually became mine, my grand parents both had a Honda Trail 90, and my uncle had Husqvarna. I remember it smoking big time. There were others too, but I don't remember anymore. Good times...
