    Motorcycle(s) you sold but wish you still had

    I've had around fifteen motorcycles thru the years. Of those, two still tug at my heart more than the rest...

    My second street bike, a 1985 Yamaha RZ350. The yellow/black/white Kenny Roberts edition, complete with the full Toomey kit. The sound of a piped two stroke twin is music to my ears.

    The other was my very first new bike! A 2012 Triumph Street Triple R. That bike constantly astounded me on what it could do. It had a surprising amount of power for its size and would power wheelie in third gear, sometimes forth under the right conditions.

    Re: Motorcycle(s) you sold but wish you still had

    Of all the many bikes I've owned and sold, I'd wish I'd kept my 2005 KLR250. I actually bought the FZ to replace it (for riding two up).

    It wasn't fast but would handle un-real, 75 MPG, go anywhere and super dependable and NOT hot. You could actually touch the ground un-like the newer dual purpose bikes..

    The G0ldwing, don't miss, too many "issues", the first gen FJR-too hot(but fun and fast!).




    I'd love to have that RZ350, quick bike, love the paint scheme.

    My first street bike was a 1975 Yamaha RD 350 (orange)- First year with reed valves. I'd kept that but an old man turned left in front of me totaling it. I almost "checked out" with VERY serious injuries (9-30-77)

    Re: Motorcycle(s) you sold but wish you still had

    None, every bike I sold was to move to another bike. Kinda like girlfriends...well, sort of.

    However I have liked a bike so much that I have upgraded to a newer, lower mile - same bike. Gen 1 KLR 650 2000 to 2007 and my badass KTM Supermpoto 990. 2010 to 2013

    Still happy with my 08 Wing at 100k miles but as soon as I wear that one out I'll get another.


    Burning fossil fuel and loving it!!

    Re: Motorcycle(s) you sold but wish you still had

    I've owned nearly 30 bikes since my first in 1973, a '73 Suzuki TS50. They were all sold because I was DONE with them and happy to move on...but time makes you forget why you sold them and only why you bought them. So in that regard I wish I had them all back...in their "new" (or new to me) state. Most missed include:

    '73 Suzuki TS-50
    '71 Honda CT70H
    '74 Hodaka 100 "Dirt Squirt"
    '75 Honda XL175
    '76 Suzuki TM250
    '76 Suzuki TM400

    See where this is going....I miss them all.
