My first motorised bicycle was a Raleigh Runabout. I used to ride it to school when I was sixteen. I got the flaired bottom of my trouser-leg (it was 1976) caught in the fly-wheel once. It stopped the bike dead and chucked me on the ground. Most embarrassing!
I bought my first real bike in 1978. It was a Honda CB250 G5, registration NEW 99P and cost me £465. Since then I've always had a bike, either here or in America where I lived for a while. I brought two GL1200 Goldwing Aspencades (top left) back with me when I came home to the U.K. I've owned two Honda CX650 Turbos (bottom left,) absolutely amazing bike; years ahead of its time. I've had a number of Honda ST1100 Pan Europeans (bottom right.) For a while I was riding a Yamaha FJR1300 (top right - mine has panniers) a black (of course) 2002 model. I've now switched back to an ST1100 but I'm not convinced that was wise and I may well look for another FJR soon.
Robert is now big enough to go on the back which is good because he no longer fits in one of the panniers!
