I've owned relatively few bikes, but each one was special, I reckon!:

Honda CG 125 - the Chemist delivery bike - unbreakable!

BMW 650 Dakar - I was the sixth owner, so dropping it was not a heart-stopping moment!  :biggrin:

BMW 800 GS, nice bike indeed, but never did get those wet-noodle Front Forks re-done...

BMW 1150 GS; 154,000 km, and pulling STRONG  :thumleft: (present bike)

BMW K100 - soon to be a Street Tracker; in-line 4, she PURRS! (other present bike).

Honda MT-5... Traded on the Kawa.
Kawasaki Z500... Sold to buy the DT.
Yamaha DT125LC...Traded on the 6.
Honda CBX1000... Sold to buy the Suzuki.
Honda XR200R... Swapped for an old Merc.
Suzuki DR500X... Sold after 15 years.

Then there was about a 7 year bikeless gap and I could resist no longer.

Honda CX500
Honda XR600RE... Swapped for spares for the 200.
Honda XR200R

A bunch of XR's and CX's for spares and rebuilds... Which I am considering selling as rebuildables.

Suzuki DRZ400E
KTM950SE
Yamaha WR450

My first bike ever was a 1200GS.

I had a dakar same time as the 1200GS.
Then I upgraded to a 1200GS again.  :biggrin:

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.......
KTM 990 EFi -                     Still have it.

BMW GS650/Dakar x 12 - 2001-2006

Lees ek reg? Het jy 12 650s gehad?

Ja Dwerg. (Daar is ouens wat al meer gehad het.)
Ek het elkeen nie te lank gery nie. Koop, maak mooi, ry , verkoop - hobby.

01 Dakar
01 Std GS
02 Dakar
04 Dakar - laaste  van die single sparks.
04 Dakar x 2: - face lift -  2 spark en nuwe "M3" blou spray job.
05 Std GS
05 Dakar x 2:
06 Dakar x 3:

(Nie in volgorde van eienaarskap nie, maar jaartalle.)
Fotos help ook nie eintlik nie. Dakars het mos net een sprayjob per model!

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!
