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.
"Until he reached thirty, Randy felt bad about the fact that he was not socially deft. Now he doesn't give a damn. Pretty soon he'll probably start being proud of it." from Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon novel (1999).
