How many bikes have you owned??

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by rc36, May 23, 2005.

  1. I was wondering, since we seem to have a huge cross-section of members, how many bikes we have owned in our riding careers?

    In 30+ years of riding I have owned, sometimes more than one bike at a time, the following stable

    Honda 350/4 Road
    Yamaha TY 250 Trials
    Honda MT125 Trail
    Yamaha RD 250 Road
    Honda 400/4 Road
    Bultaco Sherpa T Trials
    Honda 750/4 F1 Road
    Honda 500/4 Road
    Suzuki Hustler 250 Road
    Honda CBX550F2 Road (2 of at separate times)
    Honda CBX 550F Road
    Suzuki GS850G Road
    Honda VFR750 Road

    And I am presently trying to restore a 1980 Kawasaki Superbike that was raced at the Coca Cola 800 at Oran Park in 1981 and crashed severely at Bathurst in the same year.

    Not an impressive list in light of what some riders have owned over the years, but I wonder how other forum members have managed.

    How many years and how many bikes???
  2. Well mate, I cannot get anywhere near you, but I will list them here for the nostalgia.

    BSA C11
    Matchless 500 twin
    AJS 500 single
    Royal Enfield 650 twin
    Jawa 250 2st
    Puch 250
    BSA Bantams (2)
    Triumph 500 twin
    Honda 125 twin
    Susuki 250 2st twin
    Honda cbx250 '83
    Yamaha xj400z (4cyl) '84
    BMW R65LS '84

    I cant remember all the years/models of them except for the last three.

    Wish I still had them all in a shed, but I dont. Only have the last on, daughter has perloined the Yammy.

  3. My list is far less impressive.

    Yamaha PW 50
    Suzuki GSX 250 (Actually Dad's but he let me use it as a loner in between bikes for a while)

    Yamaha AS3 125
    Honda CB 250
    Honda NC 50
    IZH Jupiter 350 (Actually Dad's but he never rides it)

    I plan to add to the list ASAP but my girlfriend keeps telling me I have to spend the money on other things. 1 more holiday, then it's my turn to choose how I spend my own money. (No one tell her I said that) :)
