i wanna hear some stories on how you guys got your first bikes



i got my first bike a 2002 xr80 by going to the local boat marinas and going through the dumpsters for the beer cans the fishermen would throw out it took me 3 months but i got 600 bucks and bought it. not bad for a 3rd grader if i do say so myself!

Yeah that's pretty good, better than my story. I put a few hundred down on a beat up mostly stock 2006 klx110 and since my brother is friends with the owner of the shop i got to take it home. Finally paid it off, started buying parts and it's about to be a full mod, almost no stock parts other than the frame, cases and piston... but im almost thirty two so for twenty something years all i got to do was ride my brothers and some of my buddies bikes. Wanted my own since i was about 5 when my brother got his first bike, took up too many other hobbies i guess but now i have one, might be a big bike in the future but for now what i have keeps me broke.

age 7 i got my 1977 xr75 for 100$...road it so hard that summer blew the top end rightaway.





My older brothers were always riding and had dirtbikes so i got to ride there trail 70's at the time. Then i finally bugged my dad to get me this bike my friends were selling and boom i got the xr75..that bike did wonders and held its own with the newer xr100's at the time.

I traded a beat up specialized p3 for a full mod honda 50, then worked my balls off to buy a brand new RM 250 a few months later. I just kept buying more and more bikes after that.

Was the summer of 74, worked all summer and made $875, bought a brand new Suzuki TM 100 (before RM) for $850.All summer long my buddies would bug me to quit and come hangout with them,but i wanted a dirtbike and my parent's wasn't going to buy me one(Cause they hated them) so i kept working.Funny thing is when we got back to school all my buddies said i was lucky to have a dirtbike.I told them all that there was no luck involved,just time(which i guess they didn't have during the summer?????).After 30+ dirt/street bike's,15+ pitbike's, my favorites bike's have been 81 RM125,86 KDX200,89 KX 250,03 RM125 and a LXR 14.

my old man bought me a 1975 honda xl 175 for my 13th birthday... he supprised me with it after my little league game where we won our championship series... i was soo excited... after that i started moving up ... went from a xl 175 to a rm 125 to a 92 rm125 to a 99cr250 to my current bike that i bought with my crab fishing funds .. the almighty 05 crf450 and i am so thankful for my father and his support.. without him i would probably be playing dungeons and dragons in a basement somewhere hahah..
