Right before mt 20th birthday, i finally got my drivers' license. I immediately bought a Honda VTR250, that really looked
like a crotch rocket. Well, it wasn't. It hardly reached 100 mph but I had really good fun with it. 2 years later, I bought a '99 Suzuki GSX600F (hence my nickname), which was a bit faster, (it did about 127 mph) but it was just about as reliable as a dog in heat.
A year ago, I was fed up with the unreliability of this piece of crap, so I traded it in for an older, more reliable bike; a '97 Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird (quite a mouthful, and quite a handful).
So, now I'm 26 and I still haven't owned a real crotch rocket. I tried a friend's Ducati 750 sport, but it's just not comfortable enough for commuting. And this bike tops at 182 mph, that must be enough...
