we all remember our first one - what was your first motorcycle? why did you buy it? why did you get rid of it? what mods did you try? post a pic up if you have one. you might be on your first m/c now or it might have been 20 or more years ago. my first was a GSX400FWS '83 or '84 model can't remember exactly but it was just like the one in the pic (which I downloaded from the net). it was second hand when I bought it and I paid about $1800 for it in about 85. I think I have an old photo of it somewhere but I wasn't real big on taking pics in those days. all my mates had bikes. I could only afford a bike or a car, the bike was cheaper so that's what I got. I bought it secondhand and couldn't even ride when I bought it. when I bought it a mate rode it home for me. I rode it up the driveway and almost stacked it lol. that night I wondered if I had done the right thing and didn't get much sleep. the next day was Sunday and I got up, had breakfast and went for a ride. I got it up to 80 on that first ride and I felt like I was flying. all the 'buyers remorse' I felt the previous night was gone. I used to ride that suzi to work, on weekends, all the time. it had 4-into-1's on it and sounded great. it would do 'the ton' easily and then some. I would double on it and used to do monos from the lights. plenty of great memories.
