    Who has kept a bike the longest?

    did this work.JPGJust curious how long somebody has kept a bike? and do you still own it? I have only one long term survivor a 1973 cl 175 honda scrambler, I got it in 1979 and it is still going. I would like to know if you still ride it to..and a pic would be great!

    MY 2005 BMW GS that I bought new is my longest ownership of a bike. It has 86,500k miles on it. Before that was a new 85 V-Max that I sold in 92.

    Here is a vid of GS several years ago

    My TW is the bike i've owned the longest, was 16 years last August
    I've had other '2nd bikes' along the way, but plan on keeping TW for as long as I am able to ride a motorbike
    Life without my TW, I don't think so

    I rode a '73 Harley FX Superglide for 14 years, that's the longest I've kept a bike.

    I bought an SR500 new in '78 and sold it in 2008. I wish I hadn't.

    like most there are a few bikes I wish I would have kept, I had a 77ct90 with only 100 miles on it in 88 bought for 150 bucks, 83 xl 185 in 96 had only 600 miles on it was like new. young and dumb sold them to get bigger cc bikes, then sold them to.... never satisfied.(until the tw)

    I still have my first bike, a Honda QA-50 that was a birthday present in 1975, still runs, and I have putted around the yard on it every now and then, If I ever do have a kid I already have a starter bike.
