MO Survey: What Types Of Motorcycles Have You Owned?

We know that you MOrons are a diverse bunch, but we really want to know what kinds of motorcycles you’ve all owned. In fact, we’re sure that you come in as many shapes and sizes as motorcycles do. So, we decided to do a little investigating – just for yucks. So, humor us, if you will, take a look at the survey, and vote for all the kinds of bikes you’ve owned.

First bike, '74 Yamaha 500: then a '78 Honda CB750: then a Yamaha XJ (?)1100 briefly; then a 2001 Honda Shadow 1100; then 06 Victory Jackpot; then my 05 Triumph Speedmaster (R.I.P.), and now my 2010 Triumph Thunderbird.

05 Speedy is lost to the universe. Just had a reunion with its big brother the 2010 T-Bird, so decided to make it mine. Much thanks to Team Triumph of Janesville.

Lightweight/entry sportbike, middleweight sportbike, middleweight supernaked: Ninja 250, Ninja 650, Street Triple. I was looking at middleweight supersports, but I liked the ergos and vastly cheaper insurance of the Striple. I got a reply to a youtube comment today from a guy in Washington state. Dude is close to my age and rides a GSXR-750. He pays more for insurance per month than I pay for a year. What does the future hold? It depends on what the manufacturers decide to make. I like like and nimble. I like fast but much over 100 hp for the street seems a waste. Cost is a big consideration and comfort is a moderate one.

I started in March of 1964 on a brand new Honda CA110 50 "Sport" (OK, OK, it actually belonged to my older brother, but he almost never rode it). Then it was a Triumph Tiger Cub 200 that almost never ran. On to a '68 Honda CL350 during the high school years. Beat the crap out of that one, but had fun doing it and, as a side bonus, learned how to split cases and replace transmission gears. To this day, I think I have as much fun working on bikes as I do riding them.

Next came the Motocross years: A '72 Yamaha MX360, a '74 MX250 for starters. A couple more used MXers: a CR250 and RM400 along side a friend's Montesa Cappra that dated back to about 1970.

Also had a '68 Bonneville during that time. Great bike that I wish I still had (along with the Tiger Cub), even though it had lost its soul to Lucas, Prince of Darkness. Pushed it a lot, but when it ran...

Got married and "retired" from Motocross - not exactly my idea - but it didn't last long (the marriage, that is). Next wife is a keeper. Had her own '78 Honda Hawk and, later, a hot little GS250 Suzuki. I picked up a new 1980 XS650 Special II. That was fun for a while, but was quickly replaced in '83 when the XJ900 Seca appeared as the answer to my sport-touring dreams. Still have that one - Eclipse soft luggage and all - but the bike is in resto/project mode at present. My Sprint ST is the daily rider and how I love that motor. My son and I swap bikes sometimes, though, and riding his Street Triple reminds me a lot of my old 360 motocrosser. They both have about the same power to weight ratio!
