Fizzy for me. Actually two, after I put the first one full pelt into a car going through a junction, probably reliving the Trans-Atlantic racing we used to go watch at the time :cheer: .

Grew up in a country with no restriction. So first bike at 16 was a Honda Xl125. And yes full car and bike license at 16.

Neither, in the sixties you could have a 250cc at sixteen.
I had one of these, amongst others, before I passed my test.
Edit, thanks for starting a bike thread Russ. (thumbs)

Fizzy for me. When it was de-coked, downhill with the wind at your back you could get 55mph.

A proper fizzy with a drum front brake before they messed about and made them slower
That was the first bike I ever did a stand up wheelie on but it was a bad mistake because I was using a ramp in a multistory carpark to get air under the front wheel and hit my head against one of the lights :pinch:
