My bikes are..1992 fire blade
1967 Honda cb72.
1968 suzuki t 20
1962 BSA A65 650cc.........................What do you have hidden away?
Regards Denis.

This is mine;



It used to be a bit tatty and old, so I wrapped it in matt white vinyl, and replaced all the original decals. I think I've had it for seven years now, and I've been doing fewer and fewer miles each year. I keep thinking about selling it but it costs me virtually nothing to run so it'll stay with me for a while.

My bike history:

Kawasaki AR80 had around '89 - engine died, p/x'd for
Kawasaki AR125 which kept for couple of years (lent to a friend when I got)
BMW K100, no rear brake m/c, clutch on it's way out. Sold to pay off debt
At similar time (around 1991) had Honda wetdream (CB 250) for commuting to London - lasted a few months then camchain snapped. Fixed and sold.
Then looked after the bike school CG125 and got (via inheritance) a Suzuki GSX400 twin - which got nicked. Friend took over the CG so his wife could commute.
Then got ZZR1100 ('92) kept for just over a year and sold, then had Yamaha FJ1200 for a few years. Finally had my Hayabusa which I bought around '02 and sold about 6 years ago to pay for toy car.
Also bought a Suzuki GT500A approx 12 years ago as a resto - then started toy car so sold it about 4 years ago.

Nothing since and think it'll stay that way

I did a Diversion a couple of years ago for a mate of mine so he could sell it. He was glad to see the back of it. According to him he spent more on batteries and spark plugs than he did on petrol in the years that he had it.
This was it when it went after I tarted it up

I havnt had one for a few years and my 8 years Ncd have now lapsed. I didnt even start to drive untill I was around 22 due to having bikes and scoots.
I gave them up to keep my licence for my job.


Every summer I get the itch.
