2009 Kawasaki Eliminator 125 A blast to ride

93 CBR900
2000 Wide Glide
2010 Tri-Glide
2004 Hayabusa

I'm probably forgetting some, but I still have the Wide Glide, and Tri-Glide, and Hayabusa. Next year I may buy an Ultra Classic as I don't care for the tri-glide. I want an RC-51..

Honda cub 50 (I'm a believer in starting small and when you can get crossed up and correct it then you can move up) ;)
Honda super 90 (boy I was in high cotton, it was the deluxe model with chrome fenders and blinkers!)
Kawie Z! 900 (ok I cheated and skipped a couple of classes) MTC 1013 pistons and cams and Morris mags the first month I had it BUT it took me a year to go from the four pipes to a Kerker 4 into 1!
Yam DT 400 (I think it was DT street dirt wheelie king)
Yam YZ 250 R
Suzuki GS 750
Yam FJ 1200 (one of the best super tour bikes in history)
Honda CBR 1000f Good handler but no power. The only bike I ever bought used.
Kaw ZX 11 Good power but no handler
Kaw ZX 9R First bike in the 9s and a good handler and I did some 1000 mile days
Harley FXDWG Wide Glide (Whoops I have no excuse that anyone could understand) Oh and I take it back this was used too

Moto Guzzi Spada
Moto Guzzi 850cc Le Mans Mk 2 (Had her for at least 10 Years, took her out to 1000cc, hi lift cams, 40mm Dellorto carbs etc)
Moto Guzzi Daytona, a disappointment after my Le Mans, no bottom end so it had to go
And here is where my long relationship with Suzuki's start
Suzuki TL1000 R bought new in 2000, (another big disappointment, no bottom end either after my Le Mans so didn't last long)
Suzuki Hayabusa, 2000, stonking bike, bottom end plus top end but...900 miles to a back tire, which I couldn't afford back then, ironically, I now get around the same with my supercharged Busa haha)
Suzuki 2001 GSXR 1000, bought new, awesome but quite tall in the saddle compared to the Busa which I felt I sat in rather than on.
Suzuki 2004 GSXR 1000, bought new,
Suzuki 2005 GSXR 1000 bought new....the one! awesome in every respect and back to feeling like I was sat in it not on it. Had to go tho before I ended up in jail so bought a
1969 TL 1000 S to try and calm me down, worked to a degree coz it kept trying to kill me on long sweeping bends when it would start wallowing then throw a temper tantrum, had the rear shock replaced, front forks worked on etc etc but nothing worked so I thought oh well, I would rather go to jail than be dead so started thinking, what was the best bike I've ever had, my 2000 Busa was the answer so in 2013 I bought my beloved 2008 Gen 2 Busa and the rest, as they say, is history and I now have a 325 bhp fire breathing monster which I will never part with. :race:
