Yeah when you were shagging on the beach the side stand kept sinking into the sand. They did a good job of running through the dark from the coast guards land rover with an illegal pillion afterwards though.

I feel that life cheated me by making me so old that I missed the opportunity to spend my year as a 16 year old on my first motorised vehicle riding a restricted Honda. Life was also unfair enough to make me feel forced to go straight from my unrestricted 50cc moped onto an RD250 which a couple of months later after never having had any formal training I rode around the block a few times in exchange for a full licence.

I'm sure Herman is just jealous that he's too old to have had the opportunity to be overtaken by pushbikes just after he started to live the dream of motorised transport.

Brother from another mother!

For me it was Honda testing how quickly the bike could loose it's exhaust paint, and teaching me there is no such thing as Matt black heat proof spray paint that stays on a bike exhaust for more than a week.

Girlfriend lived at Lytham St Anne's though, so to be fair to Honda it spent a lot of time running back and forth to Blackpool on the beach, and I had no appreciation of the difference between fresh water and salt water.

My 'unrestricted ' SS 50 (can't imagine how slow a restricted one must have been!) had pedals
Was anyone apart from me daft enough to ever try and use them? :blush:
I can't imagine any other way of using so much energy for so little effect!!

I got my SS50 just before the AP50 came out, or otherwise I think I'd have got one.
I think the AP was a bit better bike than the FS1E.
But...the natural progression to a 250cc at 17 was a flip....the Yamaha RD250 was better than the GT250.
I got a Suzuki TS185 trail bike on my 17th birthday.....cost was always the big issue, a batch of Suzuki TS185's destined for The States (Previously not available in The UK in 1976) was sent to England instead due to changing US emission regs.
They were cheap!

I moved up to a ts 125 after the 50 which promptly blew up then became a real man on the 250 bikes..... which I am sure is why my bladder is shot.

After my dad bought me the AP50 which was 6months old when I got it, he bought me a BRAND NEW Suzuki X7. :woohoo: for my 17th birthday

All was good until the RD250 LC showed me a clean pair of heels :blink:


Those were the days (thumbs)
