Just my story
60's, I rode Cushmans, small cc Honda's then my brother came home from college with a 250 Scrambler that we rode. Off to the USAF in 1967 and out in 1971. A few years later I took a 450 Honda in trade that had been chopped, Sportster Tank, 10" over frontend, Hard tail, King and queen seat with tall sissy bar. Fun bike but with two little one and having to pay a babysitter to ride it had to go. My 20-30's, Kawasaki 125 enduro, 250 Yamaha Enduro, 360 Yamaha enduro, YZ 80 with over bore kit for the son and of course a mini trail 50. Then didn't ride again until early 50's when a friend had a XR 650 Honda dirt bike for sale, I rode it for 20 min. and that was enough for me to realize I was too old to fling my body around on it and the bikes had changed soo much. I did get back on two wheels in 2004 with a 750 Shadow, then 1800 VTX, and then I had back sugery sold the bike. Got back on a Maxi scooter 400 Yamaha, built a 1200 HD trike (hated the ride) back to a VTX 1800 then 1300 Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe (loved the air ride and electronic cruise) but a heavy bike, 650 Bergman scooter. 125 Taotao for the grandson and then a 330 Trail Boss, 1200 Honda Shadow (two wheels again), 500HO Scrambler. Now at 71 yrs. I'm getting off the two wheels and bought a 800efi Sportsman. Having a ball.
