LOL that’d be funny, especially if you could find a retro helmet too..

Hmmmm
Maybe to many really old farts on this forum and they don’t have pictures cause that camera was a “new fangled invention” when they got their first bike....
Maybe I should of just called it “my first bike“ and left out the old school part, cause I know for sure the younger crowd has lots of pics of their first bike’s...

I absolutely loved riding a Water Buffalo, and regularly cruise Craigslist looking for one.

My absolute fave was a Honda Trail 70; to ride, ok, it’s not really a motorcycle, it’s more like a trail rated moped. But a total blast to ride, no clutch just rack the gears and go. Lightweight, very stable, and just enough power to be loads of fun.
Every once and a while i look at them and I’ve come pretty close to getting one. Tho I do imagine the ride will be a LOT different with the fat arse old me, as opposed to the much smaller 8yo me...
