What was the first motorcycle you bought with your own money?

It was a Yamaha DT100 (below) and I still have it today. Both of my girls learned to ride on it. It’s such a fantastic bike.

Join Charley as he wrestles with an iceberg, visit the major Titanic sites, ride motorcross in New Brunswick and diving in Fathom Five Marine Park.

This is one show from Charley, that I have been waiting for, for quite a while.  I still would like to see him and Ewan McGreggor do another trip around the world on the bikes.
