2nd Road Bike - The beautiful, beautiful Yammy NS125F - really loved this bike sooo much. Got it written off when a geezer from my motorcycle club ploughed into the back of it  >:(


That Yammy looks a lot like a Honda . Custom paint job ? :)

At 10 it was tippie-toes tall - by about 14 it fitted great.

Lived a couple of miles up a dirt track from the village.  Told my headmaster I could get to the school without touching blacktop(which was a lie and he probably knew it) and got the ok to ride round the playing fields to leave it in the carpark through the day.
Also had permission to go where I pleased on about a 400 acre farm as long as I didn't spook beasts or trash crops.
Didn't have permission for the 15 mile forest track that led off from the farm.  Would depend who I bumped into how much grief I got - some of the forestry guys would just give me a wave, others would give me an earfull.   ::)

Was reasonable nippy - pre restriction era.   :)

I'm aged too, so I'm allowed :)

BTW, I though "firts bike" meant "first real bike", but I see some are OK to go way back to their your age, so let me fix that for me too: the hornet may have been my first real bike, but in my teens I started on this (exactly same color):



The no gearbox version (gears were reserved to the coll guys at school) and with a pair of puke-inducing side bags like these:



That's probably the reason why today I absolutely cannot stand side bags/cases on bikes no matter what.
