I was hooked from that point on. A few years later at the age of 11, he started me on a Honda 50 (with knobby tires it was a dirt bike). I didn't weigh enough to make the kick starter go down and I couldn't reach the ground. He would start it, put it on the center stand, and I would rock back and forth until it came off and away I'd go. By the time I was 18 I was very good at hill climbing and racing through the trails as well as the local motocross circuit. I switched to road riding at the age of 18 and have been riding ever since.

My dad is 79 and his memory is slipping. Every time I talk to him he asks me if I'm still riding and if I have a Harley. I say yes and then he asks if it is a "74". In his mind that is the last engine HD made.

pretty lady! i can see why sarah is pretty too!

My Dad and two of my uncles in the UP of Michigan. I'm guessing this was in the mid-60's.

Wow, I would have guessed that as a JD, and as such, the source of your name. An 8 was a race bike. Very cool!
