4HP LOL! Posted my llist in the other thread, here it is again though:

First bike was a '77 Yamaha 175 IT (dual purpose), then a 1980 Yamaha 850 Special (sport cruiser), a 1974 Honda CB 750 (super bike), a 2003 Suzuki GZ250 (small cruiser) and a 2008 Kawasaki Wind 125 (small cruiser in Asia)

Sold my last bike in late 2008 and haven't ridden since due to back problems but really miss riding and hope to be able to do it again one day!

When I bought the 2003 Suzuki my plan was to tour Canada end to end on it but that was around the same time I started have lots of back trouble and also met my wife....

All crotch rockets for me. First bike, 02' GSX-R 600 then, 05' ZX-6R then, an 07' ZX-6R, then, an 07' GSX-R 750, then, an 06' ZX-10R. Now a Yamaha Zuma. My favorite bike was the 750. My riding style/skills beat all but one 1000 and the handling of a 600. Least favorite was the ZX-10R. Didn't like over a 100mph in first gear. Was never really happy with the handling either Now, although I still get the urge to ride wheelies for miles the Zuma keeps me under 40mph. I don't feel like going through skydrive looking for pics right now, if I get time this afternoon I'll post them up.

BTW here's my list of dream bikes: Triumph Rocket 3, Yamaha V-Star, 883 Sportster (the black and orange one) and a pre-war Harley.

Sorry the list is rather unspecific, not too fussy about years, colors and whatnot, just would love any or all those bikes!

One of my fav features to have on a bike is a shaft drive, had that on my '80 Yamaha 850 and it was so smooth to shift! Not a big chopper fan and I don't like ape hangers or sissy bars or load of chrome. In fact I like the blacked out bikes with no chrome!

I figured you would be a crotch rocket guy Zac. R1 is a beast! Loved my R6 when I was speeding through life. Now I just cruise. (oh and hit the trails occasionally) ;)
