Only have the sx now. In the past I've had Bandits, Street Triple, Zephyr 1100, Gpz1000rx, various old Jap 4's. Only 2 strokes I've had were a Yamaha 125, to pass my test on, and a Benelli 250 2C, bought as a non runner and "restored" (ie got it running again!) as a winter project. Oh, also got a Katana in my garage, but it's not mine, been storing it for a mate for about 5 years now, wonder if he'll ever come back for it  :002:

I've sort of accidentally gathered a bit of a collection - half properly mine, half not.

The SX is my daily, and if I'm riding, I'm probably on it.

I also have my previous bike, a 2001 Yam FZS600, which has been sitting and waiting for love since I got the SX - winter project and all that. Nasty cam chain rattle, which is common in these things, but worse than it should be.

My girlfriend's 2008 Street Triple is in there too, but it's been modded so thoroughly that it look like the more modern machine - got the more angular headlights, and a complete SC project side exhaust rather than the twin tail cans.

And my dad's owned-from-new '76 Triumph Trident is tucked away in the back for the rare occasion he has time to ride. I also take it out and about when I'm feeling brave - I'm not used to brakes you have to actually squeeze hard to get any work out of 'em!

Lastly, we have the girlfriend's first bike - a YBR125 - which is just sitting at the moment and really needs to be cleaned up + flogged.

Old vs. new in the attachments!

I was going to start a thread asking what other bikes members have but found this one. As well as My Z1000SX I have a little KTM390Duke which I went out on today and got soaked. It's a great little bike but after 2.5 years thinking of trading it for the KTM790Duke instead as there are some great deals on the 2019 model at the moment. So what other bikes do you have?

Started my biking life on a RD350 valve, then ZXR750 H1, 851, 748 then another 748 from new, 916, GSXR400, NC30, NC35, did some club racing on RGV250, ZXR400 then CBR600. After that had a R6 from new, CBR600RR from new. CBR900 foxeye x 2. Then came a CB1300 along with a GSXR600 track day bike. Sold both of them to buy what I have now, CRF250 green lane & brand new Z1000SX in October last year. Paid £8500 for it with touring kit. It’s done 24 miles so far due to winter. Too old to kill myself now.
