Hi cookeye, good to know that the family are into their bikes. I was only 4yrs old when my dad gave me a ride on his Matcheless.Throughout my life I’ve been around the biking scene. I recently discovered, that my Grandad was a biker, and my aunt and uncle are currently travelling around New Zealand on a motorbike. So you could say its in the blood! My husband is the pilot of our FZX 750.

Just what more parents should do. Give the kids an interest. I have a photo of myself on the back of my dads CD175, I must have been about 11, with a white plastic open faced skid-lid, nylon jacket and school grey shorts. Later he got a CB250 (wet) dream, which I still went pillion on, then he got an XBR500.. bloody uncomfortable thing that was…. so I got my own CB125TB.
To “ERR” is natural.. to really fowl things up needs a politician!!February 14, 2005 at 11:02 pm #16269RadarModerator
No real history of biking in my family. My sister had a C90, which I have posted about. My brother in law has a Yamaha Thunderace but only got into biking seriously about 7/8 years ago.
My brother, who is 7 years my senior, is now muttering about taking his bike test.
