How could I forget! My career started earlier!

In St 6 I was browsing my uncles garage. I found an old Puch 50cc "help-my-trap" which I wrestled off him (for free). I replaced the throttle cable, serviced it and that became my first ever motored bicycle!

And I thought you only had the Tiger, then the KLR; hence the 10c advice earlier on sand/gravel/offroad. Somehow got that impression.
All withdrawn > R E S P E C T 3 X B L U E B E A R D in the biking world. With that list you shouldn't have any problem riding anything,
anywhere, any time, any weather. :LOL:
