Copied over from Tiger 800 forum and, err, "edited" slightly  :034:

If memory serves me (at all), starting late July 1974:
Puch Maxi (got me to EITB Training School for a year)
Honda CB125 (first bike with gears, first junction = first and last wheelie)
Honda XL 125 (brilliant on and off-road)
Honda CB250 G5 (rocket launcher exhausts)
Honda 400-4 F2? (burgundy with gold stripes and white bikini fairing)
Suzuki GT250 (mental, only ever stroker, lasted about 3 months)
Honda 400-4 F1 (blue, I think?)
Honda CB 750 K7 (had it for 3-4 years took Mrs D to Scotland on it)
Honda CX500 (I got the shed one, replaced just about everything on it)
Honda 400-4 (ratty)
Gap years 1988? - 2003?
Honda Africa Twin 650 (Belgian import)
Kawasaki Versys 650 MkI (Orange, written off courtesy of a small white van)
Kawasaki Versys 650 MkI (super stealth black)
Aprillia Caponord 1000 (too heavy and it was an Aprillia, so reliability worries, handled beautifully though)
Triumph Tiger 800 (3 years, 42,000 miles, so it must have been Ok)
Triumph Tiger 1050 Sport (3 days, SH, ex-factory bike, mint, for now) *Edit, smashed it to bits in a near head on with a Mondeo, the bits that were left were in otherwise very good condition, according to the scrapper  :034:
2016 - 2017 Gap year (well about 18 months), largely spent in hospital/ on crutches/ with leg frame.
Explorer Mk1 (2015), had it about 18 months now, bought ex-factory with about 5,000 miles on it, not just over 19,000 miles  :028:

I'll never be old enough to know better !

No, i've had plenty of them :002: The Tex is a far more better bike than Suzuki's DL. Simply love the 3 cylinder.
