All the bikes you've ever owned in one post.. Pics!!
« on: June 08, 2013, 09:46:13 am »
I've been wanting to put together a collection of the bikes I owned. There are precious few pics of them, but they do exist.
Let's see yours too!!

Not strictly my bike. It was my dad's Honda CB350.
My little brother and me fell in love there and then. I think I ended up riding the bike more than my dad. He was a flight engineer at SAA and would go overseas for 10 days at a time. I'd ride the bike when he wasn't there, all around the plots.


Mine:-
Honda MT50. The side cover was stolen on the 3rd day I had the bike. I never replaced it.
Loved the bike! Took me to visit a LOT of girlfriends!!


Honda XL200R
I really wanted an XR but needed to get around so opted for the XL. Lots of good memories..

Took it to Brickor a lot!!


Honda XR500R
I bought it when I klared out of the army. This bike changed my life.


I rode the Bapsfontein enduro on it.  :thumleft:

Wheelied like a SOB!


BMW F650GS Dakar
Got married sold bike, bought car, never rode for years, got the Dakar in 2000
I rode it in SA and took it to Germany and rode it there too. I'll post pics when I've scanned them in..


Honda XL500s
Bought it in pieces. Restored it and rode it around Germany. The bike attracted a lot of attention.
Before


After


BMW R1200GS
Great bike, went to the Isle of Man on it. Toured Germany and France on it too.


Honda XR500
Restoring it..


Honda XR600
Riding it..



After the rebuild:-

My first bike, Suzuki TS 125. Got it when I was 16, sold it when I was 18 and got and a car was still a good idea

Presently, my pride and joy. 2009 GS Adventure. Have almost doubled the mileage since I got her in September last year

1985 suzuki 50cc. My first bike at 16. Rode it for about 12 months and it packed-up on me.  :-\



At 19 I bought a Honda VF750R. Rode it for 3 months and wrote it off into a car.  :'(



Images of 50cc and 750cc are not the bikes I had just copy's of web.

20 years went past after I had the crash with the Honda before I got onto a two wheel bike again.  :(

At 40 I bought a Dakar.  :)




This bike got me back into biking. But I soon outgrew her. Got me a GS800.



Got me this little beaut to lay with as well. Sold her about 6 months later to a friend that also got into biking.



I soon outgrew the 800. Three months later a XT660R  :)



Got a GS1150 at the same time and a Gas-gas trials bike. Also got a XR400 then.  I think at this stage the shit had hit the fan.  ::)







From here I went ape-shit.   :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:



More to ad but, nou gaan ek nie verder uit praat nie.   :patch:
