    '79 Daytona Special. What fun!! Not actual bike in photo but almost identical setup. Bought new for $1495. 5 years later the dealership STILL had the other one marked $4995. Doubt he got that much.

    yes... that RD was a keeper for sure. I'd be kicking myself for selling that one too.

    I've bought and sold tons of bikes... but this is the only one that I even remotely regret selling.

    My high school sweetheart, a 1997 CR250. She was a monster.

    Bought an 86 FJ1100 with my Army enlistment money, sold it stupidly 2 years later in Germany. Probably alive today cause I did though...

    My 2008 Honda CB250 Nighthawk. Fun little bike! Would have been perfect for my wife and friends to practice.

    Could only afford one bike and wanted an adventure so this one went. It was close to mint condition. Fantastic motor and so fun to ride. Maybe another will come around. 1986 FJ1200.

    Sold it in 2014. A 1984 one owner with 10,000 or so km but I just couldn't bear to see it deteriorate any more and don't have the time or facilities to strip it down and rebuild it.

    My 07 KLR I sold when I moved this year, had almost 30,000 miles on it. I miss that bike something fierce. Looking for another right now. My goal was to achieve 100,000 miles on it, but due to a job transfer, that was cut short.

    Of the thirty or so bikes I've had, this is the only one I really miss. It's an '82 Honda FT500 Ascot. I rescued it from a guy's back yard, put a few hundred bucks in it, and rode it for a couple years. I sold it about ten years ago after it started having constant electrical issues. I saw it on Craigslist later and the guy had turned it into a bobber project. :dunno

    There are two, the lc4 400: a sweetheart of a dual sport, and the fuglystrada: best motor ever.

    This one.
    One of only 40 sold in Sweden.
    The non-standard paint job is due to me dropping the bike and making a big dent on each side of the tank.
    I intended this to be just a temporary quick fix, but I kind of liked it so I kept it that way.
