Mine was an AR125, I did have a Vespa PX125 before that as well.

It was bought as a scrapper and rebuilt. I only blew it up once.

I had an NSR 125 super sport. Mate had the same bike. We were the coolest kids in town.

I did have a 90cc before that but it was a ped and you said bike...! ;)

First bike was a s/h Kawasaki ER-5. I did a direct access in 2004 and the ER-5 was the bike I did my training and test on, so I bought one as my first bike. Did 30k miles in two years, commuting all year round in all weathers. It only let me down once - corrosion on the negative battery terminal which I fixed on the spot.

Ah - ye olde Fizzy, a mate had one, and a Raleigh Chopper. I was dead jealous.

Until he got sent to jail. (For trying to rob a local tobacconists by lobbing a brick through the front window not noticing there was a police car parked opposite. He missed the window, hit the wooden frame in the middle, the brick bounced back and knocked out his accomplice. The best bit was that he tried to run away and hide under a car. Unfortunately the car he chose to hide under was the aforementioned police car. He wasn't the sharpest pencil in the pack.)

My first bike was a humble CG125 bought off a riding school with a zillion miles on it. But it was cheap and I was skint. I eventually traded it in against a GS500.

First bike was a brown C90 with no exhaust - I was 12, I think, so it was a field bike, not road.

First road bike was a red MT-5 when I was 16.

I haven't owned a bike since, so number three is yet to be established. I am 47 and a half.

On my 17th birthday, I took possesion of my first proper road bike the Honda CD175.

I somehow very quickly snapped the camshaft of a bullet proof engine, so it was then changed to the moe upmarket CB175 which unlike the CD had the luxury of an electric foot.

This was quickly replaced by a Suzuki GT250 which I took my test on

My old dad wouldn't let me have a Motorbike until I was 18 and could save for and buy it myself.. So my first was a 1976 Kawasaki KH250

a two stroke triple. and it looked a lot like this:

Same here (SS version) & same era.

I'd like one now for nostalgic reasons, but I can't bring myself to pay up to £5,000 for a good one
