You might have forgotten, or at least you don’t think about it much. But if you really try to recall, what is the first memory you have about motorcycles? When did the bug bite?
Here’s when the bug bit me
I didn’t really have motorcycles in my life when I was a kid, so as far as I can recall my first memory was from TV. Back in the eighties when I was in my early teens (1985-86) there was this Sci-fi tv series called V about aliens trying to take control of earth. They disguised them selves as friends, but really needed humans for food.
Of course some humans bought it and willingly visited the alien space ships never to be seen again. But not the merry band of humans forming a resistance who fought to blow the aliens cover. One of the resistance members was a kid who rode a dirt bike. That’s when I knew I wanted to be a motorcycle riding rebel fighting to save the world, when I grew up.
When did the motorcycle bug bite you?
The idea for this post came from Grail over at Knucklebuster who asked the same question to a bunch of big wigs within the sub (k)ulture of (k)ustom motorcycles. But how about you, what is you first memory?
