Well, right now, there is a Ducati S4 916 sitting there, up until the 950 SM came along, it was the funnest bike I'd ever owned, lightweight, pretty good power, wheelies and spins the tire coming off of corners, stops good too. There was a Sportster I owned for a while, piece of crap. Wasn't fun to ride. Slow as fuck. Didn't stop well. Didn't turn well, actually didn't hardly turn at all. But my wife "wanted a Sportster". She didn't put 5 miles on it in a year. Now she thinks that Ducati is hers.

Been a lot of stuff over the years. I sold a KZ1000 about a year ago. DR350, it sucked. YZ450F, good bike. Traded that off. YZ250 2 stroke, wish I still had it, might buy another one if I can find the right deal.

Oh, I've got a 1970 CT-70 that I ride almost every day. I had one in 1971, and found one just like it. Brings back big smiles and good memories.

Holy crap man, nice bikes. I like the white KTM a lot.

I just checked out this thread and I'm just drooling reading this page alone.

My 990's stable mates are an '08 450 xcr-w (runs great) and an '85 CR500 (that I have to find time to get sorted out).

Just picked it up about a month ago. The PO had the jetting completely wrong for this bike. Got that sorted with an Ivan's jet kit. Now need to work on the suspension. It might very well have the absolute worst factory suspension I have ever ridden. Outside of the 1979 Honda ATC 110 I had as a kid.

I don't think so... go together in a Hansel and Gretel sort of way for those of you who appreciate aesthetics. Finally found an R90S - the 'bike I never had'. Score!

It needs work - hasn't run since 2003, but it's all there and just needs some care. Sorry Beemakilla - this one doesn't need to be killed...

That's would be cool, plus it's good for the economy... starts a whole new obsession and more expensive googling...
