Mine is a little embarrassing...

Honda H100A (with obligatory Allspeed - ring-ding ding!)
Honda CB250N Superdream
Honda CB250N Superdream (I know - 2! What WAS I thinking?)
Honda CX500
Honda CX500 (Yeah, OK, well I WAS a despatch rider...)
Kawasaki GT550
Honda CBR1100XX-X Super Blackbird
Honda CBR1100XX-X Super Blackbird (nicked - RIP)
Triumph 1200 Daytona (the old man's - borrowed for 6 months)
Honda CX500 (sentimental reasons - couldn't pass it up for £80)
Triumph 955i

Now I see it all written down in front of me, I don't know whether to loaugh or cry. My unflinching homage to the transverse V-twin is alarming even to me.

You are what you have ridden.

I have been riding since 1968 from small beginings to my present Triumph. It has been a real journey of discovery.

1) Suzuki M12 50cc Red
2) Suzuki A100 100cc Red
3) Suzuki T-305 305cc Blue - 1st wheelie bike
4) 66' Norton Atlas 750cc - sounded and ran well then broke in short order
5) Bultaco Lobito 125cc - wanted dirt bike
6) 69' Kawasaki Samurai 250cc Blue - wanted street bike
7) 73' Yamaha RD250 Blue - ran like a stripped ass ape untill plugs fouled
8) 75' Suzuki T-500 Blue
9) 78' Suzuki GS-750E Burgandy - swapped the black tank and trim with standard 750
10) Sears 106cc - ridden in the dirt (1st Italian bike)
11)83' Honda CB1100F Blue - best and worst bike syndrome
12)86' Moto Guzzi LeMans 1000 Red(of course!) - Opened up another whole world of riding experience and sphere of life long friendships
13) 94' Triumph 900 Daytona (Canadian model) yellow - when going very fast or slow must remember a heavy bike
14) 01' Triumph Speed Triple Blue - I love this bike!

Scott,Lance & Michael, it's the destination in this case that's important and not that you guys took a short cut to get there. I was fortunate to have many miles of experience under my belt before my bikes got fairly fast. Good luck on your venture into the realm of motorcycles of character and good taste.

Daytona 955i (99-01)


icon05 Jun 2002 09:37
i might be youngest

99-955i
00-HD FXSTB (Night Train)
99-Duc. 748
01-Malaguti 50cc Fogarty replica (It was too cool to pass up)

Maybe it's youthful stupidity (I'm 24) or just a passion for two wheels, but I can't bring myself to sell any of 'em. I'd like to put more miles on the Triumph, but the damn thing won't stay running for more than two months at a time :sad:

Not many either, but here goes.

1968 - sat in my Uncles Suzuki powered racing sidecar - know it wasn't MY bike bike but it's where it started.

1973 -Yam FS1E - broke 3 toes after a crash whilst towing my 2 mates cycles with a bungee cord

1974 - Scott framed traillie with a JAP (the British JAP) 185cc thumper unit - found in River Taff, 'restored' with mate, ran s!$%e for 4 months before putting it back in River Taff.

1978 - Honda cg125

1978 - Honda Soggy Dream 250 - a sponge on wheels but did 35K in 20 months.

1982 - This is the sad bit! At this point was thinking of buying a car when a CX500 came towards me by Beaulieu. WOW! looks and noise - inspirational! One of lifes defining moments involved a CX500 - how many can say that! Kept for 10 years and shed a tear when it went.

1992 - CBR1000 - bland and heavy but useful

2000 - Daytona (and hopefully the new 1300!!)

The future? - Daytona for sure

Lucky for me, I spent 16 years travelling the globe with my job and on every continent (inc the bottom one), and in most of the 5o countries I've visited I have blagged or hired a bike.

Like a lot of people on this site and others, it doesn't matter how many bikes or what ones, the damned things have ruled my life for decades, kept me youthful (!), made me into an anorak and been involved in every thing I've ever done, met, been etc.
Hooray for that.
Ride safe!
