I've been a reader of the site off and on for a little while but figured it was time to join in. I grew up riding an old '84 Honda XR100 dirt bike and had left bikes for a while, but got into street riding in 2009 with a 2000 Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird. Big first street bike, I know, but it was all good. My wife and I even took it to Washington state (I live in Saskatoon, SK, Canada). Sold that bike, and now ride a 2004 Honda 919.
