I must admit I saw a post in another thread and one of the posters listed all the bikes he has owned. I thought it might be interesting to hear what others have owned over the years.

I will start. I am 56 years old and I got my first mini bike when I was 10.

1. Heathkit Boonie Bike
2. 1966 Honda S90
3. 1964 Honda 305 Dream
4. 1975 Suzuki GT380
5. 1977 Kawasaki KZ 750
6. 1976 Honda CB750
7. 1984 Honda V65 Magna
8. 1985 Honda V65 Sabre
9. 1984 Honda Gold Wing Aspencade
10. 1988 Honda Hurricane 1000
11. 1998 Honda Valkyrie
12. 2001 Honda Valkyrie Interstate
13. 2013 Honda F6B
14. 2015 Honda Gold Wing.

Feel like I am forgetting a couple but this is the majority of them. Anyone else care to reminisce about previous bikes?

I probably have one of the smallest lists. I started riding at the ripe of age of 33. I just turned 50. My list:

2000 Kawasaki Vulcan classic 1500 fuel injection. Second owner in 2003. Still have her :)

2003 Yamaha Royal Star Venture. Only year with the two tone Raspberry/Sand. Was 3rd owner 2012-2014. Sold to my brother who still has and I still ride...

2008 GW level 3, second owner, bought from a previous forum member ( unbeknownst to me at that time). Picked that up May 15, 2014. Still have and still love every mile we share...
