Hmm. 

1979 Suzuki GS 425L
1979 BMW R65
1980 Yamaha 650 Maxim
1981 Yamaha Seca 750
1980 BMW R80 (Owned for 20 years).
1999 Honda ST1100
2001 Suzuki Bandit 1200S
2004 Honda Silverwing 600
2008 Honda Goldwing
2012 Suzuki V-Strom 650
2012 Yamaha Super Tenere
2013 Yamaha FJR 1300
2015 Triumph Tigere 800 XCX
2016 Yamaha Super Tenere (Favorite so far)
2018 Trumph Tiger 1200 XRX low (Undecided)

I think that's it. I'm 57 now. Can't believe it at times. I've never owned a car and have always lived in the North East. Of course I spent much of that time working in the Merchant Marine in warm climes, (and not so warm), so it isn't as odd as it sounds.

Far too many to remember, but one springs to mind for all the wrong reasons. It was a 1984 kawasaki AKz 1000 J. It looked brutal, and in fairness, had great straight line speed, but putting it through corners was a truly terrifying experience. It wallowed and shook it's head violently, with little feedback to let me know why it was so unhappy. I can still feel the engine heat roasting my legs at traffic lights, along with the acrid smell of burning oil. Had I hung on to it, it would now be worth some reasonable money. I can honestly say, that I have never been happier to see the back side of any bike I've ever owned.
