My First Motorcycle

Ok. So, I sold my very first motorcycle today. I'm bummed but happy at the same time if that makes sense. It was my baby. It was my motorcycle of "firsts."It took me on many adventures and I created a pretty strong bond with it. As hard as it was to let it go, I'm glad it went to a person who is so happy to own it now.

I bought the bike in 2012. A 1975 Yamaha RD250. It was perfect and a great bike to learn on. 
It was in good shape and was ready for me to ride. 
First motorcycle, first ride.
Only major change I made was the exhaust. It made it sound less like a weed wacker.

This bike has been around the block...
Shannon learning to ride.

Shannon's first time riding on the street with traffic.

Josh Nowell riding it from Manteo after his bike died on the way home from Revenge Run 3.

3 year old Eli.

Eli's first ride on a motorcycle with his daddy.

Jaime and Berkley's first.

My sister's first.

My mom just liked it. 

The bike took us places...
Heading to Ocracoke. Revenge Run 3.

Shannon rode it to Ocracoke. Revenge Run 4.

To Greenies many times.

Slades in Surry, Va.

And on countless Sunday rides to nowhere.

I manly used it to get to work and back...
...sometimes in fishnets.

As you can see, this bike has given me and plenty of others many memories. I'm sad to see it go but it's gonna be in good hands...
From one bitchin lady to another. Take good care of her Jules!
