On my 10th birthday, which was exactly 34 years ago today (is that even possible?), my dad came through with the Bridgestone motorcycle in the above pic. It was too big for me, had a hand clutch and four speeds and was really a street bike designed for the streets of Japan, but it got me in motion. Learning to ride on that thing gave me a leg up on all motorcycles to come. I was blown away a few weeks ago when I walked into the shop at "bike night" and saw a similar Bridgestone sitting there. I love motorcycles.
