Going back to my roots, must say for me the perfect DS bike is a 650 .
 Light enough for the rough and it can cruise above the speedlimit.
 I ride a lot more with the CRF than with the 1200. Its just a very lekker playbike.

I think once you've had one/owned one, it's hard to get them out of you're system. I think this on a thread elsewhere, but the XT 500's and the XL/XR 500's were almost cult bikes...every schoolboys dream....

Nice to see some Triumphs in the lists  ;D  That Triumph Daytona 650 was a great bike, not so Herm?

Edgy - I found the 955i Sprints (was yours RS or ST?) to be quite tame...?

When the Daytona 650 came 1st and 2nd in the Isle of Man TT in '03, I was sold. The Yellow colour with the Union Jack across the front fairing was fantastic. Aso, a sportsbike capable of touring.

It was a big jump for me - I went from the KR150 (2-stroke) to the RS.  The KR was pretty quick though, but that RS was just awesome.  As soon as I opened her up the first time on the test drive I was SO sold!!  Then put on 88 000 totally hassle-free km, and then wrote it off... it was a sad day indeed.  I really miss it.  The current roadbike (Z750S) just doesn't compare, it's a good bike, make no mistake, but it just doesn't have the personality the RS had.  That's why I say I'll be shopping for a triple again in the near future.

04 XL650V Transalp (my baby)

I still cry about my XT500 - she was pretty, but then currently she would have hurt me like hell. They are quite small in fact. My buddy's DT125 is almost the same size if in fact not bigger.

Fooled around with mate's bikes in school - DT50, RZ50, MB-5 and the Gamma's. Had to cycle to school >:(

Honda MT 5 The traveling bug bit on this bike. Went to the Hell twice on it. Did 32000 kms in 2 years!
Suzuki DR 500 S
Honda XL 500 S Loved it. Easy to start. 23 inch front wheel and engine unbrakeable.
XL 600 R Not to bad but problems with timingchaintensioner.
XT 500. Hated it. Difficult to start. Not good on dirt and sand. XL 500 S was much better.
XT 600 Tenere 84. Red White and blue. Big tank. Loved it. Travelled 75000kms with it.
Dakar 650. Love it. Has done 63000km in 3 and half years and no problems. I only use it for holidays and weekend riding. No commuting as I live on a farm.

In order of owning:
Bridgestone 50cc - not roadworthy - used in veld - learned to push
Yamaha 50cc - Shimwells did very well out of me for spares,
Honda CB500 - first four cylinder - rode for many miles while at varsity,
Honds CB750 F - First new bike, really great - sold when I got a company car - big mistake,
Ducati Desmo 350cc single - inherited from father (still have)
Ducati 450cc scrambler - in pieces in the garage, a few part missing,
Honda CB1100RC - lusted after this bike while at varsity, still a great bike to ride, surprisingly fast by todays standards,
Kawasaki KLR650 - wanted to do some off-road riding. Not the best in any category but a very good allrounder.

Yamaha XT250...Nice bike, just too underpowered....Swapped it for the Z1000R
Kawasaki Z100R Eddie Lawson Replica.......Nice & fast but no DS capability.
Honda XR500....Sold it as i needed the long range and street worthiness of an XT600
Yamaha XT600 Tenere (x2)....First one got stolen....Really enjoyed these bikes. Easy to work on and was cheap to own.
Kawasaki KLR650...Planning to keep this bike as long as possible. Great all rounder and like the XT600 the cheapest fun bike to own that constantly begs you to be taken over the horizon to some unknown place.

RD350 Powervalve - was an unreliable pig but I loved it
NSR250 MC18 - race tuned, weighed 115 Kg wet and made over 60hp (IIRC), got a life's supply of adrenaline in a few months from this bike
VFR400R NC30 - heavy, but awesome motor and super reliable
Aprilia RS250 Harada GP replica - first and only dream bike ever owned, little disappointing after the NSR, still regret selling it though
82 XT200 - was commuting on this thing until just two years ago, surprised to find it shitloads of fun as long as I stayed away from the highways
VFR400R NC30

My signature says it all...
Next to the KLR I loved the 750 most.
If I ever come across one rusting away under a tree I plan to restore it.

First bike in 1993

81 XT500 (sold)
82 GPZ550 (sold) - a bit of a mistake as I prefer non-road bikes
04 XL650V Transalp (my baby)

I still cry about my XT500 - she was pretty, but then currently she would have hurt me like hell. They are quite small in fact. My buddy's DT125 is almost the same size if in fact not bigger.

Fooled around with mate's bikes in school - DT50, RZ50, MB-5 and the Gamma's. Had to cycle to school >:(

Time for an update since this date...

First bike in 1993

81 XT500 (sold) marriage and no money forced sale
82 GPZ550 (sold) - a bit of a mistake as I prefer off-road bikes
04 XL650V Transalp (sold - twatwaffle that I am)
01 XL1000V Varadero (sold) sudden pregnancy forced sale

Out of all the bikes I owned the BMW R80GS and HP2 is my most favourite followed closely by the Yamaha Tenere and sidecar. Best mileage and cost effictive bikes I ever owned was the Honda Africa Twin and the BMW R100GS thus far. Most expensive bike with trouble was the BMW R1100GS I had in the UK, strangely enough the one I had in SA never gave me a spot of trouble  ???

Hard Foken Hard. Real old school toy. I'm selling mine as I do not have enamel left on my teeth  :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer: :imaposer:

Not a bad bike, awesome run around but NOT for the long roads. More then ample power and fuel consumption.

All and all not bad at all with the exception of the hard ride

Pre-army; 1974....Suzuki A80. Delivery bike that I thought was either Barry Sheene's TR750, or Roger de Coster's TM400.
1975...2 bikes bought from a Paarl farmer, in boxes. Honda CR250, and MT250 "Elsinore"
1975...Honda CB360 Twin
1977...Yamaha 90 scrambler
1977...Yamaha YDS7 250 with massive long reach springer front fork...yes, a "chopper"

I have a nagging feeling I may be missing something here, but this is what I now remember owning during high school days. Year of ownership could be wrong.

                     1980...Honda XR500 twinshock matt khaki.

1980 [civvy street]....bought the 1st of my 4 Suzuki GT750's. Promptly had Hausberger Yamaha fit a 3 into 1 exhaust, huge disappointment! 2Stroke cylinders are individuals!!!

Post-army; 2x Suzuki GT750's, one a specific bargain, bought from a older gentlemen, his son rode the bike and broke a piston. BUT here lies the geluk, the centre piston broke all along the top ring landing, and a 2stroke having no valves to be damaged, the bore was still perfect. I literally fitted one new piston, 3 sets of rings and gaskets.
This was 1981, and in this same year I also bought my 1st of 4 RD350B's, from a guy called Desmond Easom. These 350's were incredible bikes, and I was the undisputed champ on the old Helshoogte pass. Killarney was just boring. :peepwall:
1981 also saw me becoming the owner of a BSA thunderbolt single carb. Sold it to a unsuspecting victim of circumstances. :imaposer:
1982; I bought a 1975 Yamaha DT400 in showroom condition, and got a RT1 [360cc] Yammie thrown into the deal.
1982 also saw me buying my last Suzuki GT750, previous owner built a very nice Cafe racer, frame nickel plated, TR750 tailpiece, Melber wheels, etc. Very nice bike.

I am trying to put things into chronological order, but I know that I will have to add bikes that I have forgotten about. Like the lekker little horizontal transverse twin 2stroke Stinger
T125 Suzuki I took over from my brother in 1981!!

Yamaha TZR 250 (2T) -       Road bike :  Kamikaze bike and loved it / 1st bike ever. (3 years)
Katana 750-                       Should never have sold this .....(3 years)
Honda CBR 600 F3 -           one of the best I have ever had. At that stage it cost more than my car.....Awesome bike.
Honda CR 250R -                Full off road- absolutely wicked with almost no suspension.
KTM 200 (03 model)-          Very capable and underestimated.
Yamaha YZ 250F -              (05 model)Best 4T off road money can buy.
Kymco 100TB Scooter -       modified and did an easy 120.
Yamaha YF 250F -               (07 model) Very nice.
KTM 950SE -                       "The Beast". Awesome, but just too heavy for me in the tricky stuff.

Current bike:
KTM 690E -                        Suits me just fine. Perfect all-rounder for me.
KTM 200 -                          For the thrill and skills development.......

SR500 (3), the last one with twin spark 540cc Wiseco engine with White Bros. hot cams and the works :)
XS650 minimalist strip down jobbie :D
XT500 '87 with XT350 disc brake front end :D
CBX 1000
XT600 Tenere
VF1100C
GSX750 Katana
CB550 Four Super Sport
CB250 RS (3), last one converted to XL500 / FT500 engine :D

I still have the VF and the last CB250RS


Sure I forgot a few

Hey, was that the same Katana as mine?  (see pic)  That was my first 'own' bike!

Suzuki 50cc (bought it for my little brother for his birthday, but rode it sometimes)
Yamaha RD350 (My hubby bought it, I rode it a few times, but didn't like it much)

Suzuki GSX750 Katana (My first very own bike, I loved that bike, but affirmatives decided to remove it from my possession)

Honda XR200 (Actually my brother's bike, but he kept it at my place, so I used it a lot around the plots)

Then no bikes for many years... I had 4 legged horse powers

Honda TRX300  Quadbike (all mine)
Polaris 500 Scrambler Quadbike (was actually Mario's but I rode it too)

BMW GS650 Dakar (my first duallie, also went the affirmative shopping route)
2002 Honda XRV750 Africa Twin  (my first AT - it was set on fire in Lesotho  :'( )
1996 Honda XRV750 Africa Twin  (Still had it until last year, sadly it was illegally auctioned off to someone in CT?)
1999 Honda XRV750 Africa Twin  (My Broom... I hope it never goes away!)
BMW GS1150  (Also Mario's bike, but I rode it sometimes too, it was useful for going shopping with the panniers and all)
Vuka 125 Scooter (Went to Joburg with (ex)step-son and promptly got T-boned by a car!!)

And the kids bikes:
Suzuki RM125
Yamaha RT100
Kawasaki 175 (old skodonk that never really ran)

And one day I hope to add a KTM990 or 950 to the list  :ricky:  But the Africa Twin will stay...

PS:  Really cool to see how many of you have had Africa Twins...  :biggrin:
PPS: And I spotted some more 750 Katana's as well!

One of my mates at school, Shirley had access to her dad's arsenal of bikes. In 9 and matric we would go down
to other side of Westmead and tear through the valley. When you weigh 63kg and on a PE400 the power to
weight ratio was mindblowing for 1979. I now need bigger more powerfull bikes to give me a rush...

Had:
-A Share in a KX80 with a mate. It was in a box, never got it running properly. Efforts to get it fixed wasn't helped by the fact that neither of our parents knew of the bike, so all fixing happened in secret in a secret barn.

-XT500 - Great bike,  but overheated all the time. Brakes are decorative.

-KLR650 - Great bike. Brakes are decorative

Have:

150cc Jonway Galactica - For a chinese scoot it's proving to be very reliable. almost 3 years without issues

NC700X - Only got it last week, time will tell.
