I'll join in on the fun ... this was my first "dirt bike", an early 70's SL100. I had to scour the net to find a picture of one as I don't have a picture of the one I owned. =D I actually rode a highly modified full size Honda 50 before this (it had Yamaha tubular front forks to replace the original Honda suspension). Good times !!

One of my friends started out with Taco mini bike but my Dad couldn't afford to buy one for me. Another friend of mine found a good used deal on a Honda SL 100 painted the frame black and the tank yellow. I was finally able to buy my first dirt bike when I got a job and bought a brand new 1973 Yamaha 250MX. I was 17 and my friend with the Honda SL 100 bought one of the first Honda Elsinores, 6 months after my Yamaha 250mx. I was bummed that the Elsinore wasn't out when I was shopping. I sold my Yamaha and countered with a brand new 1974 Husqvarna 250CR.
