Do you have/ever had a motorbike?
#1
Just stealing someone else's idea from another thread, but giving the thread a title so dads might be drawn in.

Do you have, or have you ever had a motorbike? What is it? What was it? Share your road trips. Share a couple of pics?

I sold my last bike because I wasn't allowed to ride it anymore. Massively regret it. I never had much money so never had a new bike, but I've ridden a few and I prefer the older bikes anyway. My bikes, starting from first to last:

My favourite was the XJ600 by a clear mile. I'd have another TDR125 for the fun factor. The Nighthawk did about 50 miles and blew a piston, the ZR550 I had a month because someone had modded the headrace or something and it wasn't tracking properly. It didn't like going in a straight line, I didn't wanna pay for a overhaul.

I will have another bike, as soon as I can afford it.
