1971, now don't get me wrong, I can crave some curves it's just the onslaught of sport bike riders, stunters, etc over the past 15 years (bought my first in 89 ) has given us a bad name and brought unwanted attention so I kinda shy away from something's unless I know who I am with and can I trust their riding skills. Gone on to many back road ventures that ended with some cat who thought he could ride and realized he wasn't as good as he thought.
But my current wife rides and I don't need her collecting on that life insurance anytime soon. LOL. But I've always wanted to take a ride up on the dragon's tail and that's something on my bucket list.
