I was sitting next to the braai last night and started thinking of the various bikes I have had since I was a lightie. Started counting and was quite surprised. I've listed below as best I can by year which bike I had. Would be fun reading to see other peoples lists.

1. 1975 - Honda Monkey Bike 50cc
2. 1977 - Yamaha Passola and YZ80
3. 1980 - YZ125 and KX80
4. 1983 - Kawasaki AE50 with 80cc conversion and AR 6 speed gearbox. No other schoolboys could catch me.
5. 1985 - Yamaha DT175
6. 1987 - Katana 1100 but sold after 1 month before it killed me
7. 1988 - Cagiva 125
8. 1989 - Yamaha IT175
9. 1990 - Restored a Yamaha DT125
10. 1992 - Suzuki RM465 started hare scrambles and enduros
11. 1993 - Yamaha YZ250
12. 1996 - Yamaha WR250
13 -1997 - Started flying
14 - 2001 - Restored a 1977 Yamaha XT500 Enduro Desert Red colour
15 - 2006 - Restored a Yamaha RD350 LC
16 - 2010 - Yamaha XT250
17 - 2015 - Yamaha XJ900
18 - 2019 - Kawasaki KLE 500 and KLR 650 which I still have both.

Lots of memories there and I may have missed 1 or 2 LOL
