I don’t know if other people agree but for me there are reasons and excuses, stories and tales for all the bikes on this sort of list. Well here goes and if memory serves...


Honda ss50, (5 speed with disc brake--awful piece of junk)
Fantic Caballero (***)
Z650 (*)
Z750 Twin
KMX125 (***)
Triumph 900 Sprint, Trophy 12, Tiger 955i
Honda Firestorm (hmmm… unremarkable)
Zx7r, Zx10r (*** the 10 was stolen)

Yamaha MT03 (660cc) traded for the Rebel. I just cannot believe how much I was given in the deal. I only went into the showroom for a look around. I honestly think the sales guy messed up!

Kawasaki GT750 (!)
Bandit 1200 (!) –The guy selling (a fellow work colleague) needed the cash and I made him a ridiculous offer… he accepted.

I must admit that this list is embarrassingly long but apart from the ZX10r, most were old and rough when I bought them and a couple were none runners needing attention. This list however, does represent 35 years of riding.
Both the GT and especially the Bandit stay because they’re both exceptionally good bikes.

Someone please come up with a longer list... I don't want to be the only one to have wasted so much on so many bikes :surprise:

These are the ones I can remember actually owning, in approximate chronological order.





There may be some gaps where I only owned the bike for a few months or so.

As to bikes I've actually ridden, it started with a Panther 600cc single being ridden around the back lanes when I was about 12.
Since then I've ridden too many to mention, even if I could remember them all.

I do remember the really nice ones though, as well as the awful ones and the couple that tried to kill me.
