You've Come A Long Way Baby ...

Just for fun I thought you'd like to see my very first bike - A Honda 175 (Get a look at the rusty chain, didn't anybody ever tell me about chain maintainance? Guess not!) I bought her used, in the early 80s and I called her "Flame". She was my pride and joy. Thanks Mom for saving the picture all these years.


  1. oh what a lovely little bike
    my first bike was the one that EVERYONE seemed to get as their first - a honda CG125!

    That 175 was twice the bike that I had. Mine was a Yamaha 80cc 2-stroke and I took Mrs Skoot on the back up Burnaby Mountain. It was one of the few times I have carried a passenger and this was around 1965/66, or so . . .
