    Re: Bikes you regret selling??


    I knew the TLR posts were coming... I will never understand.

    On my own regrets list?
    91 KDX200. I restored it then sold it for 800. Dumb.
    2004 KTM 12sx. Really pretty and purposeful bike. Tried to kill me one too many times, but I miss it.
    Honda RS125 GP bike. I was one with it. I wish it were in my living room.

    That's it. so, all small bore 2 smokers. Hmmm... My garage is lacking.

    Honestly, I got into my second TLR after owning my first for a few months before it got totaled and wanted to have another go at it.

    By the time I got my second one, did a partial restore and was able to start riding it my shoulder was so far fucked and with the bike being as uncomfortable as it was, I was glad to see it go. I just found no real enjoyment in riding it.

    Honda RS125...sort of.
    I have a longer list of bikes I regret allowing to be stolen.

    I don't truly REGRET selling any motorcycles I've owned, I do however regret letting go of my BMX bikes from the early/mid 90's. With my son really into bicycles lately I was hoping to find some deals on old bikes like the ones I used to have but damn they got pricey. I must not be the only nostalgic guy out there.

    Had a few GT's, Diamondbacks, Robinson's etc but my Redline Proline was by far my favorite. Looked just like this one:

    Dammit I miss my RL20-II. Why'd you have to go there...


    Bonus points for the same wheels I had on my Haro. Both bikes stolen.

    My tl1000s was a ton of fun. That motor is one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of spinning up on the street! There's something about that twin and the torque and how easy the front comes up...

    All my oil cooled GSXRs over the years
    89 Gs500e, first bike.
    Real 1992 Zx7-r
    94 cbr900, bought it back 2 years after I sold it, still own it
    94 vfr750, sweet sounding with those cams and the NACA side vents looked cool
    87 fz600, still haven't seen another one and that was years ago.

    Oh and my little red Bandit 400 with 5,600 miles

    The Hayabusa I had for a minute, if only for the novelty of having an unmolested first year. Still on NESR though.

    Garret the Busa is in good hands! I spent that first winter going through the bike OCD style - SS lines, geared down, new forks, rebuilt calipers/masters, plus a bunch of shit I am forgetting.

    This bike has a serious appetite for tires.

    Last winter I sent the injectors to Fla - bikes runs better than ever, turns out the injectors were well off. The plan for this winter is synch the TB, have a custom tune made and give the clutch some attention - I think the plates are showing their age.

    I have had it to TN twice, I think it now has 29k on it. Currently commuting/freezing my ass off.

    2010 BMW s1000r. I sold it because it was killing my hands, enough vibes to make them numb. I've had carpal tunnel surgery since and wondered about getting another one.

    Long way from being kitty cornered and removing the exhaust to fit on a 4x8 trailer in upstate New York in October! I think it had 16k miles when I let it go. Good to see its a solid performer

    '89 FJ1200. First bike I rode cross country. I convinced myself I really needed the high-tech stuff coming out - you know, radial tires, liquid cooling .
