My first street bike was a parallel twin Yamaha 650cc in 1980 , after a few years of dirt bike riding.
It was air cooled, came with a center stand and a kick starter + electric starter, and had a top speed of 105 mph. The vibration, tires, forks, and shocks were shockingly bad compared to newer technology.
“Do…not waste time protesting the self-inflated showmen and bloviating bullshitters who populate our culture. It’s more fun to marvel at them, to appreciate them, to be grateful for them, and to mock them relentlessly. ”-from the 2010 book American Freak Show by Willie Geist. "He wondered what difference any of it would make two hundred years from now." -from the book Cyclops by Clive Cussler.
