    Just curious what you started out on. I have had quite the love affair with bikes since I first road one when I was 8. I year later I had saved enough cash to buy my first a 67 Suzuki TS-120. I would give just about anything to have it back. Anyway here are most of the bikes I've had over the years. I know there's a couple I've left out.

    82 Suzuki RM 125
    75 Honda MT 250
    82 Maico 490
    74 Yamaha RD350
    73 Honda CB175
    85 Yamaha XT 600 Enduro
    86 Yamaha 600 Radian
    82 Suzuki GS400
    75 Yamaha RD350

    Honda Night Hawk 450. I had it for two months, just to learn how to ride. Traded it in on a Gold Wing.

    A Cushman Eagle in 1966. I don"t remember what year it was manufactured in.

    Suicide shift (two speed), Centrifical clutch, and it fit my budget.

    I have always loved the looks of those bikes.

    A Classic

    Another Classic


    I have one right now, although it isn't running. ;)


    My brother had one. It was a nice bike.

    All Classics

    I must say, you have great taste. :thumbsup:

    whogasak47, you must have a thing for street-legal oil burners and I really can't blame you. ;)

    In 1976, I bought a brand new GL1000 Honda Goldwing. In 1980, I sold it and gave up riding for many years until 1996 when I bought a new BMW R1100RT. I now ride a 2005 BMW R1200RT and am lovin' it. :thumbsup:
