1990 Honda Hawk GT650

This was my first bike, and what a fantastic bike it was. I bought it in 1994 with a $3,000 loan I took out on a low rate credit card while I was still a student. My mother was really ticked when she found out. I rode this bike quite a bit, and happened to find a really active group of excellent people to ride with. I logged over 14,000 miles with this bike in the year and a half that I owned it. It was an excellent bike to cut my teeth on, both as a rider and a mechanic. I sold this bike in 1996, a few months after purchasing the CBR900RR.
