    Which of your previous bikes do you wish you still had?

    This has probably been asked before but here goes; Of all the motorcycles you've ever owned which one did you sell that you wish you had kept? Mine was a 71 Maico 400 square barrel.

    All of them.
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    05 GSXR1000 Turbo, ran 8.70s all day long at the drag strip, and I would ride it to the track, stopping by wendys for a burger on the way lol. It was funny guys would ask me what it was going to run while in tech line after rolling through the gate. And they would all give me a funny look when I told them 8.70s at about 160-170mph

    Early 70's Yamaha ??360 enduro, it was a beast! Ran backwards on me once, stalled and recovered, went to take off and promptly planted my nutz on the tank...

    I actually don't miss "the old ones", I like advances in fuel management, suspension and brakes. But there
    are days where I miss my Yamaha RDs just for that "gawd damn" scared feeling of 2 stroke power and light weight.

    Thats one thing I noticed about riding turbo bikes reminded me of my old 2 strokes, they both had a powerband that would hit and make you hold on for dear life!
