First bike bought new in 1985. A Honda shadow 500. Couldn't find an actual picture of my bike so I pulled this pic of the web, same bike.
Second was a 2004 Honda VTX 1300 C
Third was a 2009 BigDog coyote with a 117 s&s ( loved this bike)
Fourth is my current 2011 Street Glide
Fifth is my Dads 1962 Li 125 Lambretta ( which he just gave to me ...woohoo!!)
