    Saw this on FB and thought it might be a fun thing to do on here.

    post Google images of all the bikes you’ve owned in chronological order :)

    here’s mine:

    italiajet 50cc - got when I was 9 and it literally blew up 3 weeks later - missfire and fuel pipe fell off at same time. Ended up jumping off and the bike was a fireball :(
    4205955D-86AF-4F80-A714-75AA55FDCADF.jpeg

    Yamaha TY80 - has 364 days from age 10 when it got nicked out of my shed
    0FE21E76-61D8-4016-B1EB-C6B1941FCF6B.jpeg

    Honda CR80 Big wheel - my first step into moto-x honed my skills on this bad boy from age 11-14
    7A1AE79C-9F11-4D3E-8E42-4D9C697B1AC0.jpeg

    Kawasaki KX125 - second moto-x bike. Scared my dad with this one :D
    8D3BFF51-C616-4470-B4BD-B188BC77C887.jpeg

    Aprilia RS50 - bought new in 2004 at age 16 used to get to work and pick up local girls ;)
    A8E9E0A6-B910-48C2-A21F-5E40B7F29AA1.jpeg

    Suzuki TL1000R - first proper bike at 21 - rode like a bag of shit but rode it hard. First knee down :D
    31CA7E3F-64C7-419B-B452-C38DE1C537A7.jpeg

    Suzuki Bandit 650 - got to calm me down and take misses on back more. She never came on it and it was boring - sold it 7 months later.
    82FE7EA6-9683-4BEE-AA6C-ECEFAA87AEA1.jpeg

    Fireblade RR7 - we all know what happened to this :(
    193818C5-4495-4D27-B9C5-66D538CA9697.jpeg

    Fireblade RR-B - current bike :)
    92A2B395-D282-4C0D-AB2F-AB526E628D38.jpeg

    haven’t stuck the street triple I had in as it was my dads even though I had it 3 years. Also haven’t stuck the current project (Zephyr 750) as it’s co owned by me and my old man

    let’s see yours :)

    I like the Casal - I can imagine your father riding home with a Garrafao de vinho tinto strapped to the rack on the back ;)

    I had a Casal 125 Cross and it was hard to shake off these guys on Sachs V5 that were only 50cc - they would be right on your tail or even creep past !

    Nice bike, of a time when people went to work on those - not sure what it is like now.

    I'm sure happened a LOT! :p

    It smaller villages they're still pretty common. In the last years in more urban areas lot of people starting to taking them out of retirement, completely refurbish them or just do the minimum to get them running, and parades of 50+ year old bikes occur regularly.

    It all started with a Yamaha Bi Wizz 50cc I bought off a cousin who only had it for a month. Got a 2 year driving ban, so sold it.

    Screenshot_20200407-231510_Samsung Internet.jpg

    Then I bought a brand new Piaggio Typhoon 50cc. Put a big bore 70cc kit, clutch, rollers, springs, exhaust (even dyno'd it FFS; 69mph, WOW WEE) etc, but it was the Malossi stickers what made it really fast! I got jumped whilst on it by 6 London hood rats, and I thought fuck this for a laugh, I need a big bike (even though there were 6 of the little fucking scrotes, they never got the bike off of Bruce!).

    Screenshot_20200407-231612_Samsung Internet.jpg
    Bought a Honda CG125cc to learn gears and do my Direct Access. I bought this brand new too, but only had it for 2 weeks, as I passed by bike test in that time. Chopped it in the next day for a Suzuki SV650 naked below:

    Screenshot_20200407-231657_Samsung Internet.jpg
    Had this for about a year, then it got written off by an idiot reversing into it whilst parked. I loved this so much, so I bought a Suzuki SV650S below:

    Screenshot_20200407-231830_Instagram.jpg
    I had this SV for a very loyal 12 years. The engine blew in the end, due to an oil leak whilst ryding it and I sold it as a spares or repair. I didn't want to repair it because of ULEZ bom (Ultra Low Emissions Zone, bend over mate). Guy I sold it to had it running again within two days and shipped it to Poland. If it weren't for ULEZ, I would have definitely repaired and kept it.

    Screenshot_20200407-231852_Instagram.jpg

    I then bought an Aprilia RSV Mille 1000cc. Had this for about two years. LOUD as FUCK with those cans! When going to mediation as part of my divorce, this was put down as one of my assets to divide, so I thought fuck that and sold it. It was also an old bike that would incur charges from ULEZ bom, so needed a newer bike.

    Screenshot_20200407-231927_Instagram.jpg
    Here is my current bike a Honda CBR1000RRA Fireblade. I say mine, but it's in my mum's name not mine (I have no assets now and nearing the Decree Absolute of my divorce!) I will have ridden this for a year in July 2020 (my near 70 year old mum owns a Blade LOL)

    Power Rangers are GO!

    Good call on it not being in your name Chin, nice history too! Hope the divorce hasn’t been too taxing or troublesome.

    Still going through it Liam.

    Soon to be Ex-Wife is meant to be buying me out of the house at the end of this month, but lost her fucking job and can't get a mortgage to buy me out now!

    I will have to wait until the end of the month to see what the Courts will do, as she was Ordered to buy me out.

    The better thing I did, was transfer all my savings to someone else, and when showing my Bank statements for the past year, the money transfer didn't show up, so I looked like a broke arse! :confused:

    All cosmetic. But I let it get written off because I hit someone. Would have kept it but I wanted the original fairings and we all know they are hard to get hold of so cut my loses and got the RR-B :)

    I don’t think pouring 4 litres of paraffin over it would have fixed it @Paul Longstaff :D
