Oscar...

your big mistake was actually running the bike......:sunglasses:. My first attempt at getting a contemporary bike on the road, was a lovely damaged/repairable RD200 from a local dealers......that bike took my life savings and the best part of my 'not very' disposable income for Months afterwards,trying to get it to run on both cylinders,before I killed it with a sledge hammer......I bet everyone who rides today as at least one heartbreaking s***heap,that kept them awake at night wondering what was wrong with it....It's a wonder any of us ride at all.....on the bright side.perhaps if I had got it running, it may have 'crash damaged' me,so a lucky escape really.:smile

my first bike was a 81 z250 twin, i loved that bike giving it a small fortune to keep it on the road and looking good, the peashooter exhausts sounded a peach, ended trading it in for a brand new 535 virago....... well i was young and loved posing:lol:

First Road Bike

First road moped - the famous FS1-E (in purple)

First road bike - YDS-7

Bit of a Yamaha theme there - however since then have had Honda's and Beemers.

First bike

BSA Bantam D14/4. Mostly a non runner but I learnt a lot about how to fix it eventually.

Favourite small bike (although so tall I could only get toes on the ground) was a KH250 triple.

Like BaldE35 says, fantastic, manic, hair raising fun. Really hard to keep the front wheel on the ground.

Wonder just how it would feel now.
