Had quite a few so far, since the age of 16 in 1979.

Here's my list:

Suzuki RGV250 VJ 21 "grey"
Suzuki RGV250 VJ 22 "grey"
Honda NSR250 MC 21 "grey"

Few years without a bike!!

Old yamaha XS400 Special
Kawasaki ZX-10 sports tourer "grey"
Kawasaki GPZ400R "grey"
Suzuki GSX400X Impulse "grey"

BMW GS1200 Adventure 07 model  *Current bike and the one I am enjoying the most of all!

Always made good profit on the bikes I bought and restored to good as new, especially the grey import 250's & 400's
