    Same reason I didn't buy a road bike and got the XR instead, I was thinking of buying a road bike but had a go of a mates Honda CBR 600 and after riding that thought I would probably end up dead if I bought one

    Me same. Nothing better than the feeling off power sliding into a blind corner of dirt at full noise.....
    But I started off on an 1985 XR500, then went to a Yammy TT250, which then was made a 320. Then went to a Husky WR250 (favorite), briefly to a 360, then I had a Yammy WR450F.
    I've really had the itch lately to get back on, but I know, and the wife will remind me, why I stopped. I might try to think of a way to magically "score" a bike... Lol.

    Ooh I can’t resist!

    These two have been under blankets in the garage since 2007.

    2000 Triumph Thunderbird 900cc triple & a ’74 Triumph Daytona 500 ‘special’ I built.







    And a selection of a few of the bikes I’ve owned over the years.

    ’52 Ariel VH Red Hunter - 500cc single.



    With camping box sidecar fitted



    My 7th bike a 250 Honda twin. (Prior to that I had series of mopeds & bikes -Raleigh Ultramatic, Puch Maxi, Honda 70 stepthru, CZ 125, Suzuki 185, Honda 250 with leading link pressed steel front forks)



    XR350 Honda, TY175 Yamaha (also had a TY 350) & son’s Honda QR 50



    The XR350 & XL185



    BMWR100RT



    The TriBsa I built & rode in many guises over a number of years, including with a sidecar fitted. 1958 T110 (650 twin)in BSA A10 frame, with ’71 Triumph Conical hub front end (originally had Norton Roadholder forks, but changed ‘cos they were knackered. Despite appearances this was a fast Triumph.

    With one of the many Honda stepthrus we’ve owned over the years







    Honda XL250 - first brand new bike I bought.



    The ’74 Daytona as purchased.



    ‘’76 T140v 750 Bonnie - my first British bike - bought in 1980.



    850 MotoGuzzi Lemans Mk2 in a few different guises. Rebuilt from the ground up & the only bike I brought from the UK to Oz in ’87. (Wish I’d brought the Ariel though)









    My ‘stable’ back in the UK, all sold when we left excpt the Guzzi. BSA A7 500 twin at the back.



    There have been a number of other 250 & under Japanese trail & road bikes but I cant find any pics. Honda XR185 was a great little bike & un-killable.

    That was the next door neighbour’s Clunk. After years of only having bikes, we bought our first car around the time of that photo, an Austin Cambridge. I think that may be it on the rear left of the photo. I reversed into that Hillman the first time I brought it home. Didn’t go down too well as I still hadn’t got my car licence by then!

    Actually after having a closer look on the lappy, I think it's a Hillman Avenger rather than a Hunter........... My brother used to have an Avenger and it was common to see it parked up with the bonnet open lol..........he upgraded to a Fiat 127 - another rust bucket.

    You've got some great photos there mate - great memories no doubt

    I agree... some classics in there that are worth a small fortune today.

    I started out working at St Kilda Motorcycles when I was 23 and they mostly speclialised is cafe racer singles and I spent a lot of time with the historic crowd (Mostly Jap)

    I was a nut for the GPZ900r and had about 10 of them (mostly to do up and sell).

    Most of the bikes I had at the start digital cameras were not about and I have not scanned the pics.

    I'll have a look later for all my bike pics..

    Here is a list of some of my favourites.

    Kawasaki GPZ900R

    GPZ900R racebike that nearly killed me at Broadford.

    ZX6R 97 model (loved that bike)

    CBR600f4

    YZF750... classic and loved it and was from a time when there was some of the best Superbike racing

    XR250 92

    sr250 built as a cafe racer

    TS250 my first bike I would ride on the road.

    RD250 air cooled

    CBR250RR racebike

    CBR250R racebike

    And many more shitters and projects and bikes I bought from auction to do up and sell and others I have completely forgotten.

    First bike was a 65 Trophy with 66 Bonnie head on it with dunstall 2 into ones single leading shoe front brake woeful.
    Then went to WA to work in the Mines, was on the list to receive one of the first black motor Kwaka 9s to come to Aust.
    Boat was late holidays were due so ordered a custom black 750/4. raced them in different guises over the following years
    some ended up being 10.5 sec bikes, One was nearly full Yosimura spec, Then had a rest , next was a V4 750 honda didnt like the 16" front wheel,
    Too twitchy on corners, brought a cb 1100 r only 6 came to aust, fastest production bike at the time 1981.,,,,,280 kph and 10.5 out of the box
    Worked at a lot of Honda dealerships throught Aust, Then I got Married and the bikes went on the back burner lol
    would love to race historics


    As for being a fast rider , Id say take it to the track safest place to speed everyone
    going the same way, cant beat it, tracks Ive raced on were Wanneroo, in WA
    then Hume weir , Calder, Winton, Sandown and even had a chance to do some
    laps of the mighty Phillip Is curcuit
