Dirt Bikes over the years

Thanks to my Dad mostly, I had many great bikes over the years. Way back when I was sixteen and still in school I bought a Honda 90 street bike to get back and forth quickly instead of the long bus tour home. Great as it was to be able to get around cheaply, I still felt like a bug on the highway. I don’t remember what my top speed was, but it wasn’t enough to keep up with the traffic coming out of what was Streetsville at the time. I was always thankful to turn off the busy highway onto Derry Road West and then the Fifth Line.

Dirt-Biking Heaven

With the exception of the birth of my daughter, nothing in life has given me more joy than dirt-biking. My Dad introduced me to dirt-biking way back in 1978 when I went out West for a visit. He was so anxious to have me go biking with him that he bought a Honda 125 before I arrived. He knew I had ridden a street Honda back after I left school, but riding the street is totally different than riding off-road.
