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.
"We have created a Star Wars civilization, with Stone Age emotions, medieval institutions, and godlike technology. We thrash about. We are terribly confused by the mere fact of our existence, and a danger to ourselves and to the rest of life.”
