Who's owned what??

Post by JasonL »

Kiwi60 listed some old Suzuki's he owned which got me thinking, who's owned what bikes over the years??? I didn't want to hijack that thread so I'll start a new one. I have to cast my mind back but I think I've owned, in rough order:

Yamaha TY80
Suzuki TS100
Honda CR80RB
Yamaha YZ125G
Yamaha XT200 2 of
Yamaha XT250H
Honda XL250 (23 inch front model)
Yamaha YZ80H
Suzuki GSX400F
Honda VFR750 4 of and counting
Suzuki RG500
Husky WR250
KTM360
KTM200
Yamaha XT600
Kawasaki KR1S
Honda VFR400
Yamaha FZR1000W

I think that's it...a few never made it to running stage so they don't count....what's next?? I'm working on gettting an RS250 NF5. I'd like another dirt bike again at some point too, probably a Gas Gas

Scariest bike I've ever ridden? CR500 with a pipe and worn back tyre...spat me off twice in 5 mins, I wisely parked it. Best bike? KTM200, a mates ZX7......favourite bikes owned......the VFR's of course...loved the RG500....have hardly ridden the EXUP so can't say too much just yet!!!

I don't change my underwear that often, unless you guys are getting close to 80 years old ;) . Don't you wear out a bike before selling it?

really this's just plain braggin'

But OK, heregoes, I'll put down my very limited list, although, the first two don't really count as they are what I learned on as a kid, but weren't my actual possesions

197? Honda Z-50 Neighbours Good old tried and true
197? Yamaha MX-100 Enduro Cousin's only ever two stroker
1982 Yamaha XJ 750 RH Seca Awful Machine, and yet.........Loved dearly and the dollars spent???... can't.. no... she was my first!
1984 Yamaha XJ 750RL Much better machine, basically an FJ750 only two valves and a/o cooled
1992 Yamaha FZR 1000 D Probably won't ever sell, especially after project is finished
2003 Yamaha FZ-1 For sale, Anyone, Anyone???
1985 Yamaha XC180 Riva Scooter, Oops Forgot for a bit.

Did come very close to a Honda CB450S, .... really loved this one and would still really like to get one maybe some day as well as CX650Turbo, or Kawi's GPZ turbo
Love to get some older RZ or RD stuff and go racing. That or some ranko 400 FZR400 or CB-1, we've got a very tight track, it's really a go-cart track.

As I've said before, I've got this strange blue/(or yellow if you're old enough) sickness, not real sure why. It's not like Yamaha has done anything for me lately. But... just always find myself gravitating over to them.. Not real sure why exactly, it's not as if I don't like other bikes either or wouldn't want to ride them. but....
