i was in 8th grade, when i started riding. my friend had a 250R 4-stroke. that bike was bigger than i was at the time. guess it's been awhile.

Edit: in case you were wondering, almost 20 years ago

I started to ride when I was 5.

I actually have home video of me unwrapping the mini-bike my father built and gave me as an Xmas present that year. Pretty cool.

I was nine when i got my XR100. Two years later got a XR200. Then a year later got a XR250. I had the xr250 for 5 years, when i got a CR250 at 17 yrs old. When i was 17 i also put a down payment on my 1994 HD low rider which i had to wait a year for.

So in all i have been riding for 21 yrs, 12 of those on street.

I didn't start until I was 22. Had to wait because my dad didn't let me, once I passed 21, I did it. He still disapproves..

Started when I was 10 on a Honda XR 80. Rode that for a long time.
87' Honda Magna when I was 18 becuase my parents couldn't say no.
Bought my 04' RR 5 days after my 24th as my own present.

04' 600rr function over fashion at this point.
