Default Re: Motorcycles I've owned

I have been riding two wheelers since 1962. (I probably should be a paraplegic cripple now - lucky I guess) Pics would take up way too much space. Some bikes I probably don't even remember, and the years??? I worked at several dealerships in my younger years and rode the dealership motorcycles also. They are not on my list. I will start the list with what I actually remember owning:

1. Honda 50 Sport
2. Yamaha 100 Twin
3. Harley Sprint
4. Kawasaki KE175 Dual Sport
5. Kawasaki 500 (2 stroke 3 cylinder street rocket)
6. Kawasaki KE125 Dual Sport
7. Kawasaki 750 (4 cylinder street bike)
8. Kawasaki 250 Trials
9. Honda 250 Reflex (semi trials)
10. Kawasaki 750 Vulcan

Default Re: Motorcycles I've owned

In 2000 I was offered a 1948 Indian that was a basket case in a customers cellar. Her husband died and she just wanted the cellar cleaned out. It was free, but not being a motorcycle person, I passed the information onto some others that I thought would be interested. Since it was November, everyone that I gave the info to just sat on it doing nothing. I spoke to here every few weeks when she came into the store for dog food, and she just about begged me to come and take it away. I had no interest, and one week she came in to say that it was gone. I asked who took it, and she said that she had rented a dumpster and had a few neighborhood kids load it up with the stuff that was in the cellar and garage. To think that I could have had it for free, but not being a bike person, I wasn't interested. Now that I am retired and have plenty of time, I probably could have found the time to become a biker.. My first, last, and only bike was a 1948 Harley 3 wheeler retired police bike. I tuned it over because I didn't know how to ride it, and then I was afraid of it. It went back to where my father got it from.........

my first bike was a 1975 Xr75 that I bought for $75 without my mothers permission... I was 13.

after the Suzuki's, I got a 82 IT 175 ... $800 used in about 1983, it was a good bike for quite awhile.

I stayed out of this thread since my bikes were very old school and wasn't worth the mention (70's Honda 350's).

But, YOU NAILED THE JACKPOT on mentioning the '85 250R. That was my first off-road vehicle. What a machine...
Mine was a little tweaked. I could do 0-80 without the front tire touching the ground. If I could have only stopped the spark plug fowling issue... Riding with the other machines was just too slow for it so it fouled.

I felt guilty for getting $500 for it when I sold it in approx. 1996. I lost that guilt when I see they're now going for over $2000.

Yeah, the mid '80 was the turning point for 2 stroke dirt machines. They started improving at a really high rate.

You guys are just a bunch of little old ladies.

Until you have straddled 49cc's of scooter power you honestly don't know what a real ride is all about

Oh, and I have a yellow one too

How'd I miss this thread. No pics but we had a Norton 750 which got sold and then we got an 850 after that. That was in the mid 70's. Rough bikes and did not have much power to them. A Honda 750 would walk all over either one of them.

OK BOB.


Well then. I currently own a 2003 Honda XR650R. It has been modified for Desert Racing. Its the only one I currently ride. I dont have any pictures stored on this computer. I do on my D.O.A. one. Guess I need to get some more pictures. We currently have (2) 50cc, 70cc,100,200 XRs and XR650R and CRF450X, TT500 (just sold) XT600 (not running) Honda 110 trail bike (in storage). I have owned so many bukes over the years I really cant remeber all of them and dont want to. But here is a pretty current list.

Never really been much of a motorcycle guy, but I have owned a few. Had a '72 Yamaha 360 Enduro I used to ride on the trails around home back around 1973. Right now I have a '79, I think, Yamaha QT 50 buried out in the shed and also a '79 Kawasaki SR 650 I should clean up and get rid of. The guy I bought the Kaw from was moving and didn't want to haul it to Michigan so I took it off his hands. He had rebuilt the engine, took it down to bike week and then parked it. I got it running, rode it about 2 miles and parked again. Hutch
