No picture sadly ( of the actual moment ) but I remember the day clearly. I was with dad out by the front gate, probably around 1979 ish, I was 10. A neighbour pulled up outside on a shiny blue motorbike he’d just bought, he‘d come to show dad. I didn’t know exactly what it was at the time but now I do (Google picture below). I was absolutely amazed by this thing and the neighbour Tom said I could sit on it. I twisted the throttle and pulled the levers. Amazing feeling. Well that was it. I knew I was getting one as soon as I could, didn’t know how, when etc but I was. I actually rode my first motorbike properly aged about 15/16 when I started helping out on a local farm on weekends and holidays. Great days. Took my car test at 17 and then bike test aged 21 and the rest is history as they say. Had bikes ever since.
