    Bikes you've owned

    Feel free to post what bikes you've owned over the years. Here are mine in order:

    1980 Yamaha GT80 gt80.jpg When I was like 10 or 11 I could get this sucker up to 65. Down to 55 after I geared it down for trail riding.

    1978 Kawasaki KE175 ke175.jpgInherited from my cousin, rode for a couple years then too much wrong with it and wasn't worth fixing. Sold for $175 ironically.

    1992 Yamaha Seca 2 600 Seca.jpg My first road bike. I loved it and still miss it. It loved to wheelie.

    2001 Suzuki Katana 600 katana.jpg My first big NEW purchase. Was never that happy with it. Sold it after buying the next bike.

    1987 Kawasaki ZL1000 Eliminator zl1000.jpg I *LOVED* this bike. I had to sell it my last winter selling cars so I could pay my mortgage. But I doubled my money on it after driving it 11,000 miles in 3 years.

    1992 Yamaha 550 Maxim (won't let me upload image) I bought it for $199 not running. Was going to be a winter project but with my new job I didn't have time. Spent $500 at a shop to get it running in the spring. I meant it to be a flip after riding it a few hundred miles. Good investment because wife's car ended up running up a $1400 repair bill and I was able to sell the bike for $1000.

    Bikes you've owned

    Here are the bikes I've owned in the past 3 years, in order

    1984 Honda XR500R
    Paid $700 for it
    Bike was almost completely restored, I miss this bike. Sold it because parts were too hard to find.

    1984 Honda CR80
    Guy I worked with happened to have it while I had the XR, and my girlfriend at the time wanted to ride, so I bought it for $100. Was a basket case, but ran, ended up giving it away.

    2001 Honda CR250R
    Bike was setup for cross country racing, I miss that bike to this day.

    2000 Honda XR650R
    Traded the CR for this bike, what a powerhouse. Favorite bike that I ever owned.

    Ride, so traded the KX for it. This bike was a BLAST
