What's my list? Not much. Only been riding 22 years and I've had few enough bikes.



1971 Yamaha Special (first bike, 1979)

1981 Yamaha 920 Euro V-twin (if anyone remembers them)

1983 Suzuki GS1100E (still got it)

1985 BMW K100 standard (still got it)

1999 Kawasaki ZX9R (I swore no more Jap bikes after the Suzuki but relented, and am glad I did)

1999 BMW K1200RS (still got it)

2002 Kawasaki ZX12R in the Fastest Color



There ARE red 2002's. I saw one on the floor. But it was obviously slower, like the '00 and '01s, and not nearly fast enough to give up my ZX9R, which was clearly faster. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

Rupp 60cc nice

suzuki TM75 too slow did'nt have very long.

suzuki RM125 fast

suzuki RM250 Real scary fast. this bike broke both my ankle's and 11 bone's. ouch!!



Went in the Navy and now i buying my own bike's from here on out.

Honda MT250 mid 70's i think 75 dirt/street 2 stroke lot's of fun. Not as wicked as the RM 250.

suzuki GSL550 80or81 bike was too small the day i bought it. my RM 250 would've left this bike on asphalt. at least untill about 75-80 mph.

suzuki GSL1000 81 really fast and it had shaft drive. Would'nt turn very well but awesome in stright line. Twist and grin<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

Honda CB750k 78 one of my favorite's. good soild bike and well balanced. And it would scoot. I'd like to have another one to be honest. for riding to work. I really liked this bike.



Got away from riding and i did'nt have a bike after i got married. for 12 year's, Then i traded a gun, Russian SKS 7.62x39 for the bike below.



Honda CB554 scary bike, motor was good, but slow, rest of bike was junk. this was just going to be a sunday cruiser into town or a ride around the lake. This bike made me want a real bike. This bike also could kill you. it was fast enough to kill ya. but it would'nt stop or turn.



I almost bought a GSXR1100 back 96 but the ole lady said" No



Present 2001 ZX12R Silver of course. I'll never sell this bike...



Took me a long time to get here. You would think the damm insurance company's would realize that.



I will alway's have a bike for now on.





2001 ZX12R Ninja,

Phantom Silver" Something which exists but has no physical reality; A ghost" </p>
