What got you all started

What got everyone into wanting to ride? Do you remember how old you were when you got that fisrt feeling to ride and what was your first street bike.

My first street bike was a 94 900RR. I rode dirt bikes before hand for a few years. My uncle owned one and I always wanted to when I grew up. Now look at me. I'm doing what I wanted to. Riding.

Started riding a Honda ATC 100 when I was 10..thanks to santa...then moved up thru other bigger ATC's, then started racing dirtbikes, then my first streetbike was a Honda rebel 450, picked it up shortly after I got my license...several bikes later, I've now got my Kat 750. Wouldnt trade it for the world. well, maybe the world but..

Started riding 3 wheelers and 4 wheelers when I was about 9. Wasn't allowed to have a bike, so I rode a friend's XR80 quite a bit. The neighborhood I grew up in was in a suburb with a lot of acre empty lots, trails, creeks, etc, and it seemed like every kid had some sort of off road vehicle. Continued to ride until I was about 15, about killed myself on a quad and pretty much quit.

Throughout the years I'd ride anyone's bike that would let me. . Every year I'd want to get a bike, and every year I'd come up with another excuse. Usually that excuse was the, "It's not you, it's the other people on the road" deal we've all said or heard. Finally I said screw it, took MSF, got my CBR600 F4i, and haven't looked back.
