Rode a friends JR 80 every chance I got but then jumped to street bikes (03 600 RR) till I was 23 (last year). I picked up an 86 yz 250 and rebuilt it, helped a friend rebuild an 83 cr 250 R and rode them both a lot. Traded the yz straight up for a 98 yz 400 f, workin on getting it going now :banana:

some sort of briggs powered minibike in the mid 70's, no suspension and a gold flake open face helmet. could not get me off of it. Dreamed about the "christmas present" every winter when the moto mags would have the ads with the 2 strokes with the big ribbons on them. My folks didn't have a lot, so it was a pipe dream for me. My Parents divorced in about '79, and I didn't ride again until about 1985 or so, had a girlfriend who's family had bikes/atc's and went with them for a long weekend to Ocotillo riding an XR100. I was way too big for it, but there was nothing else available and I was not complaining. Stretched the chain and rode for 4 days until my ass was so chapped from monkey butt (riding in jeans) but loved it. that relationship ended later, and I did not ride again until 2000 when I got back to the desert with my dad (he on a 82ish YZ490 and me on a 1981 IT 425). Rode that for a few years, met my wife, and we progressed through more bikes than I remember.

We made "my" dream come true for our kids Christmas 2005 with a brand new CRF50 and CRF70 under the tree. All the kids have been riding since about 5 years old.

somewhere around 2004 I Bought a PRISTINE 1986 YZ250 and rode that until August 2006 when I ponied up for my first NEW dirt bike (2006WR450)

We bought sportbikes as well in 2004/2005, CBR954 and CBRf4I. Had as many as 10 bikes in the garage at one point, now I am down to 5. Looking for a couple more. Smallest bike we have now is the XR100, kids are all progressing to bigger bikes now.
