I ride a 900 Custom. Seems the right size for a beginner like me.

Some people have more than one bike.

Should have made it a multiple option poll.

I wish we could view the users that voted so we could see who rode what. That would be neat.

I was 19 when I started. I had never rode any dirtbike or any motorcycle before. Closest thing was a bicycle. My neighbor hooked me up with the nighthawk after his son learned to ride and got another bike. That is how he got it too from another neighbor who learned to ride on it. Needless to say it had 4 different owners they was no more than .5 miles away. I sold it to another guy learning to ride.

I ride an 06 1500 Classic FI (Anniversay Edition) in ebony and galaxy silver.
Before that (years and years ago) it was a Kawasaki 200, then a Yamaha 200 electric.
Man I rode the hound out of those 200s in high school.
