Post Pics of You and Your Bike from your PAST!

You guys have any pics of you from way back when? Post Up!

I found this pic of me on my 650 Nighthawk from 21 years ago. I'm pretty sure this pic was taken back in 1986.



Yep, I was a "Squid": I was 19 years old, and I'm wearing a mesh tank top to show off my back then "ripped" arms and shoulders (which seems to have disappeared in the last 2 decades), gold chain, hi-top sneakers, and "gradient" sunglasses. I went through several transformations since this pic was taken, including gaining 20 lbs. of hard mass, which had turned into 20 lbs. of flab, of which I lost 10 lbs. of that, and now I'm a skinny again 40 yr. old man.

That's me about 32/33 yrs ago. A year or so later Dad put me on the Scat Kitty (Google it) & I've been riding ever since.
That dude wearing the helmet eventually married my oldest sister. Now I see him every Thanksgiving.

This one is from 1993. I'm on the Nighthawk, my first love.... Although I was pretty envious of my buddy's CBR600F2


2015 Ducati Monster 1200S

That's the Nighthawk I always wanted. Even now.

It's funny that we were all "squids" back then.

NS400R, Gimli.

Maybe the best handling bike I ever had, too bad it was slow and tuning parts were non-existant!

Is that you in the pic? Sure does look like you, but didn't think you were that old? I must have been mistaken.

Without the front fender/headlight and the bobed rear fender, it kinda looks like a flat track. I like it.
