Hysoung GD125
Kawasaki KR150 Cyclone
Triumph Sprint RS 955i
Kawasaki KLE500
Kawasaki KDX200
Kawasaki Z750S
Kawasaki KLR650 (in the mail)

Next will be the Triumph Tiger 1050, and a Kawasaki KLX450, still need to decide which one first.

Wish I didn't sell/write off any of them  :'(  'cept maybe the Hyosung, that thing was SUCH a pile.

Never got that KLX 450 - mate of mine has one though, and it's quite impressive!

never got the Tiger 1050 either - got the 1200 instead ;D

PGO Tornado 90 - sold
Hysoung GD125 - written off
Kawasaki KR150 Cyclone - sold
Triumph Sprint RS 955i - written off
Kawasaki KLE500 - sold
Kawasaki KDX200 - sold
Kawasaki Z750S - sold

Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 - current
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

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

@ Dwerg Hoe bedoel mnr nou

Van die foto's kom van die web af maar dit was hoe hulle gelyk het.

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.
