Kyk ek kan sien n paar manne verklap hulle ouderdom met die "Matchless' en 'BSA' (s) wat onder die top 10 kom  :imaposer:

As julle na my lys kyk kan julle sien ek is nog mooi jonk  :peepwall:

Maar as ek nou die lys moes saamstel in 1998 sou dit anders gelyk het:

1: DT400 Enduro waarop ek geleer bike ry het
2: Z750 - Waarmee ek ampwr 100 000km afgele het
3: GSX1100 - Waarmee ek 111 000km afgele het (Z750 was steeds my gunsteling)
4: 1100 Katana
5: XL500
6: RD350
7: CBX 1000 (6)
8: Z1300 (6)
9: Z1000 Eddy Lawson
10: Harley Davidson Road King

Post by: ZK1 on March 28, 2014, 11:27:13 am
He he he. Weet jy ja.........maar ek huil binne!

Ongelukkig moes hy die Hailwood en die Cali verkoop jare terug om sy besigheid(wat ek nou oorvat) aan die gang te hou daai tyd, so ek verloor nie heeltemal nie. he he. Maar die TT2 het hy verkoop om 'n Gyrocopter te bou wat nog nie klaar is nie want hy is nou net te oud. So ek huil oor die TT2, hy het hom direk van Ducati ingevoer in '84. Was voor ons huis in 'n krat afgelaai met 'n stel slicks. My pa het toe 'n lig en flickers op gesit en hom op die pad gery. Ek het hom die eerste keer gery toe ek 11 jaar oud was. Net so in eerste rat in die dood loop straat, maar die was nerv wrecking, want die carbs is oop en spoeg petrol op jou en dis 'n moerse geraas vir 'n klein laaitie. he he. Die bike het toe geseize agv ons petrol en die tank was uit fiberglass, my pa het toe by die Harris Bros in Engeland 'n Alu tank laat maak en hom op gesit en die bike van 'n 600cc na 'n 750cc verander met die kit wat Ducati daai tyd vir die bike gehad het......ek begin sommer snik.. :'( ek dink nie ek kan verdit tik nie....... :'( :lol8:

Wens ek weet waar hy is en wie hom gekoop het en ek het die geld om hom terug te koop. Maar sal seker 5 keer betaal wat my pa vir hom gekry het.

Very good thread, and also not that simple. Do you draw up a list of your own favourites throughout the years, or of bikes that made huge impact on release like Suzuki GSX-R 750
in 1985 and Honda's 1969 CB750 four, or Kawasaki's 1969 H1 or 1972 H2 or 1973 Z1 Superfour, or the very fast Vincents of the fifties, or Yamaha's legendary TZ racebikes?
Do you go on sales success?
Scarcity?

I just realised that I cannot get my favourites down to only ten bikes. :eek7:
