Here back in the days! 1987, I'm 16 YO back then on my 82 Honda MB5 rocking the mullet. Still to these days I regret to sell that thing, so much fun! And yes, that was the fastest in town. Clock 70 MPH on it... already in my early days, stock bike were not an option. Before anyone ask... yes, the exhaust is modded. :evil6:

Fresh out of the Army in 1989. My first street bike, a 1987 Kawasaki Ninja 750. I had just returned from Germany....no speed limit. I am still amazed that I survived.

I can't decide which is worse, Doug's neon gear or Shannon's belly shirt. :sorrow:

1990 sporting the neon gear. It was a dark time in our history.

Forget the Neon you were rocking a KTM when no one knew what they were! Hell when I had my 97 EXC in NJ no one else had one - amazing what the last decade has done for them.

cb360T.jpg

My second bike. This was probably taken in about 1978. Honda CB360T with a Vetter fairing. I added the crash bars, fog lights, and a stereo.

It all came to an end courtesy of a Chevy Silverado as I sat at a stop sign. I mean really. Who hits a stationary vehicle?

My best friend had a 360 T. We found an old issue of some motorcycle magazine and it was voted the worst or most dangerous motorcycle ever made.. :eek:

Man, maybe they were right. I got taken out, and I wasn't even moving. I had it two years, and got a CB750 after the 360T got totaled.

Ah the old MB5. That was such a cool little bike.

I used to work at the local Honda dealership back in the early 80's. . I remember when those came out.

We had a blast racing those around the dealership parking lot!

That was back in the days when you could actually do a test ride!
