The first motorcycle

Well, the first for just sporting pleasure, was a Honda CB750-4. Bought in 1978 when some friends in Big Spring with whom I had been riding trails and enduro machines suggested I join them in a trip to Pikes Peak. It was Labor Day 1978 and we made it to the top of Pikes Peak although the carburator fed motors were struggling mightily. More about the trip later, if I think of it, but here is a YouTube clip of the CB750. All that they say is true — it was a truly sweet machine.
