Best bike Memory

Just a conversation starter. What bike do you think of if someone asked what bike you loved the most?

My favorite is my first. I smile every time a see one. Great memories for a kid.

Honda Trail 70. It was a great bike too. I beat on it and it just ran and ran.

My favorites were my Honda 750f, 900f and 1100f. At one time had all three at the same time. This was back in my racing days. Here's one of my son's on the 750.

Now as for my favorite bike I got a 1960 Pan Head FLH in 5 boxes in 1978 and built it. I really wish I had that bike now to ride around town.
This is a picture the same model.

Of the bikes I had early on, my fav was my Honda Dream 150, it was white and it had chrome exhaust. Sorry, no pics.
I rode it on and off road, and it never gave me a minutes worth of trouble. It was a chick magnet and I always rode it safely with a young lady.

When I was 12 Dad got me a brand new '77 Honda XR75. Four of my friends also had one, plus one who decided he'd like to ride after dark and got an XL75 (it was street legal with a headlight, turn signals and even a licence plate holder). For 3 years the five of us rode the wheels off those bikes, trying our best to imitate the motocross riders we watched at the local track and tearing through the trails behind our subdivision. I remember being stopped by the the RCMP once for riding on the streets. My buddy was ahead of me as we rode past another street. The cop pulled out between us and cut me off but he got away. I think I was grounded for a few weeks after that little incident. Never did tell them his name, but I'm pretty sure they knew who he was. Ah, good times.

Loved those CB's Lesblank, my brother bought a 750f new in 82. I ended up buying it from him in the 90's. Had it till 2000 when I bought my Max which is my best one to date.

One of my favorite memories was just after I got out of the Air Force in 1981 and had a job for a while I heard about a 1974 CB750 4 about 15 miles away. Went out there and it ran well. Paid for it ( didn't even try to talk him down ) After the RD350 in the 70's this thing was a beast. My favorite until the next one.

My second bike was a yellow cb200. My buddies had a xl175 and xl250 so I was a little jealous as we rode off road a lot, the little cb tried but struggled in the sand. I put a lot of miles on it until the cam chain broke.
