Just a little pictorial history of the bikes I have enjoyed so far. In order of ownership from first to current. 1984 Suzuki GS550E, not my photo, trolled from the interwebs. Looks identical except mine had a sweet stainless 4-1 Supertrapp on it. Bought it in used 1988 when I worked at Honda One. I put about 50,000km on that one. 1995 Kawasaki KLX650C. Bought new in NB. Think I put about 12,000km on this one. Notice the 1995 model Nolan ADV helmet. 1998 Kawasaki ZX7RR. Bought new. Pic from interwebs. Similar to mine but just single R model. Didn’t take long to realize it wasn’t for me, got rid of it at 1,500km. 1998 Suzuki Bandit 1200. Bought new. Replaced the ZX7RR. Much more my style. One of my favourite bikes. Can’t remember if I put 25,000 or 30,000km on this one. 2007 Kawasaki Versys 650. Bought new from QC and had it shipped in its crate to NL. This one slips my mind but I think 12,000 or 15,000km when I sold it. 2009 Suzuki DR650. Put about 8,000km on it. Bought new. Should have kept this one. 2011 Yamaha Fazer-8. Put about 20,000km on it. Bought new, think it was the first one sold in NL. Really loved the colour. 2009 Yamaha WR250X. Bought used in 2012 with only 900km on it. Put another 6,500km on it. Had a lot of fun with this one too. Should have kept it. 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000. Put about 14,000km on it. Bought new. Sitting next to my brother’s bike. They need to make a street fighter with this motor. 2016 Yamaha FJ-09. Bought new. Put almost 20,000km on it. Alas, my days of riding tall bikes is coming to an end. Traded it in on the MT-09. 2016 Honda CB500F. Bought used for a song. Short lived, bought to share with my son and wife, didn’t work out. Put about 2,500km on it. 2018 Yamaha MT-09. Bought new. Need to get the throttle remapped, can’t seem to keep the front end down. Currently in the garage. 2018 Yamaha XT250. Had a grand total if 136km on it when I traded the CB500F for it. Turns out my wife likes to ride it! Currently in the garage.
