List The Bikes You've Owned

There was a thread about this a few years ago that I found interesting. I'll start:

I started riding in the '60's and have owned a LOT of motorcycles. Here's the ones I can remember, not in order. There are probably 5-10 others but I don't remember them all. I traded a lot back in the day...

1966 Honda Hawk 305
1967 Honda CT90
1968 BSA Lightning
1971 Honda CL175 (had two of those)
1968 305 Yamaha
1970 Honda 350
1971 Yamaha R5 350
1971 Honda CL350
1974 Honda CB750
1976 Honda CB750
1974 Suzuki GT380
1975 Suzuki GT750
1975 Kawasaki 400
1977 HD Sportster
1981 Yamaha 650
1975 Honda CB 500
1972 Honda CB125
1981 Suzuki GL650
1981 Honda CB900F
1982 Honda Nighthawk 650
1983 Honda Goldwing 1100 Standard (the one without all the stuff on it)
1985 HD Electraglide
1999 Sportster Custom
2005 Suzuki Boulevard 800
2007 Suzuki Boulevard 1500
2007 HD Fxd
2007 HD Road King Classic
2011 HD FXDC
2010 HD Heritage Softail Deluxe (I HATED that bike)
2008 HD Street Glide
2014 HD Low Rider
2007 HD Street Glide (current bike)

....and a few assorted dirt bikes along the way.... Suzuki RM 125, Hodaka 100cc Dirt Squirt, Ossa 250 Phantom, Harley 350 Sprint in Champion frame and Honda Elsinore in Champion frame (flat track race bikes), Rokon 340 (look it up ) a few others I can't remember now.

Wasn't trying to "win" anything. Just curious to know what you all have owned and ridden through the years.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I know at last count I was at 25+ boats. Bikes, not so much.

Let's see...

1974 Suzuki TS250
1980 Kawasaki 440ltd
1978 Suzuki GS550
1978 Honda 750
1984 Honda 750 Magna
2005 Suzuki Boulevard 800
2003 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail "Gold Key" edition
2010 Victory Cross Country (current bike)
2001 Suzuki Volusia (still own, son rides it)
2008 Piaggio MP3 (current bike)

Feel like I'm missing one or two in there....Hmmm

Oh Yeah - some old Indian small CC endure type bike, like a 150 or 200 that I never got running or made road worthy. Ended up selling it for parts.

Adding in the wife's bikes

2001 Suzuki Savage 650
2003 Yamaha V-Star 650
2009 Yamaha V-Star 950
2009 Piaggio MP3 (current bike)

Lessee ... I think I can remember them in order, even.

1996 Honda Elite 80 -- "the entry drug". Awesome fun learning to ride it. Owned 1 year.
2003 Suzuki Burgman 400 -- first highway-capable bike. Rode it 2 years.
2006 Suzuki Burgman 650 -- great all-around machine, but uncomfortable. Rode it 2 years.
2001 Suzuki Marauder 800 -- hated it. Rode it 2 weeks, and that was too long.
2008 Suzuki Boulevard C50 -- Easy-going, good-looking bike. Rode it 1 year.
2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic -- a fine bike that wasn't right for me. Rode it 2 years.
2010 Victory Cross Roads -- awesome, big, bad-azz bagger. Rode it 5 years.
2014 Honda CTX700N -- capable + affordable + FUN! In my 6th year of riding it, and still in love with it.

That's easy.

Look down at my signature.

I think there's a limit on the size of sigs around here, so you may not be able to do the same based on the size of your list.
