my motorcycles I have owned starting in 1968. 1966 Triumph Bonneville, 1955 flh, 1955 3-wheeler with a 45 flathead engine. Then another 1955, that I made into my "dream chopper". after that, a 1973 FLH, that got wrecked and a year later, 1978, I bought an anniversary edition FLH. Sold that back to the dealer for a 1979 flh with 80 in. engine. Then no M/c's for 20 yrs. Starting in 2006, I went through a 50cc, 150cc & 250cc Chinese scooters. Got tired of them and bought a 2003 Honda Silverwing scooter. That was fun. After moving to AZ in 2011, I bought a 1994 Honda PC800 and a 1983 650cc Honda Silverwing. In 2014, bought a 2014 XL1200C Sportsters. Traded that in April, 2015 for my present bike, a 2012 Heritage Classic Softail. I have had it nearly a year and have put 23,000 happy miles on it.

My first bike was a Yamaha 50 step through. I don't remember what year or what model.
Anyways I had a blast on it. Easy on gas. Once I ran it dry and mom to the rescue. We slid it in the back of the station wagon and went home. She took my key for a week. Ah those were the days. It was alright for New Orleans, but we moved to the hills of N. Jersey and it was time for more HP. I rode for two years on a Louisiana license , because legal age in N.J. was 17 and NO was 13 for a bike and 15 for a car. Oh well, I haven't thought about that for a while. Thanks for the nudge.

03 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Custom

07 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Custom


In this pic, both my 03 and 07 Yamaha appear. I bought the 03 (the one I'm standing with in the back) and my buddy (on the RK) liked it, so he got one for his son (in front)



His son learned to ride on it, thankfully never dropped it, and bought a sportster. (he's coined up)

So, being that the 07 only had 1492 miles on it, and the 03 had 37k, I sold the 03 for what I paid, and bought the 07 for 4k.



I've upgraded that to where I want it... and I still love riding it.... but it's no Electra Glide.
