#1 1980 Suz GS450L - approximately 12k maybe? geez, been too long i can't remember. racked on about 10k on top of that.

#2 1986 Yam YX600 Radian - again, i can't really remember. don't think it was real high mileage. put on about 10 or 11k.

#3 1993 Kaw ZX6D - this one only had 3,400 miles or so (bought it back in 2000). babied and pampered. put on about 15k on it and trashed the bike (didn't wreck, just ridden hard and put away wet).

#4 2001 Suz SV650 - 0 miles. brand new. hated the break-in.

#5 2002 Hon CBR954 - something like 5k miles. i think i've put about 2k on it, half being track miles.

144,347 miles laaater, now classic 21 year old GL1100 'oldWing. Purchased m/baby in 1993 with 19 k plus change on the odometer.
Well, I bent down and intently looked it in the cyclops eye headlight that beautiful June day when I met it as it spoke to me in fluent motorcycleze "Gas me, oil me, keep me cleaned up and give me a roof over my head (light), and I'll show you the World, or anywhere else you want to go. I'll forgive your mistakes and tell you about them real quick. "
So, it's been that kind of union ever since. I truly think a soft part of me would leave my body if I ever lost that bike.

My old ugly Magna had just under 28K on it when I bought it in April of this year. The bike will soon go over the 30K mark.
The engine feels like it's brand new; the tranny sometimes feels trashed.

Amount of FUN so far? Infinite.

1. 2001 ZX6R 0 miles on it, bought it new

2. 2001 EX500 0 mile on it, bought it new

3. 2002 ZX12R 0 mile son it, bought it new

4. 2003 ZX6RR 0 miles on it, bought it new

5. 2004 ZX10R 0 miles on it, bought it new

ok lets see, I still have the 01 ZX6R, and it has 20,000 miles on it. the 01 EX500 got traded inon the 02 ZX12R that had 19,000 miles on it when a guy stopped in front of me on a green light and I totaled it. Bought the 03 ZX6RR, and put 9,000 miles on it, and traded it for the 04 ZX10R in August of this year, adn have 2800 miles on the ZX10. I expect the ZX10 to have around 6000 miles on it when it gets put up for the winter....its been a slow riding year with work and all.....
lean farther, and go faster
