Back in 1964 with much contemplation I bought a new Honda 305 Superhawk. Great first bike. After a year a new Suzuki X6 Hustler. Today an SV650.

SV650

Gabe, Nice one, and an important, needed article for those just starting out. Biggest mistake I have seen for nubies is not taking the course, and getting too much bike.

Why didn't you publish this article a week ago?

A 305 Superhawk was considered to be a lot of motorcycle for a starter bike back then. I eventually got a 305 Scrambler, but prior to that I had several smaller bikes, starting with a Honda 55 step thru trail bike! VWW

Yeah Kellen, like you can read at more that a grammer school level, or would have taken heed of Gabe's sage advice anyway.

"Those cheap 70's and 80's UJM's (Universal Japanese Motorcycles) are now rusting away in landfills and salvage yards across the country."



No they're not! They're in my garage!
