My 1st new bike is the 2015 H2. I have owned a 01 zx6r (was stolen) and currently own a 02 zx9r and 08 GSX650F.
My bike is not '01, it is 2000. Ordered in late 1999 and received it April 2000. This is the only year where the speedo has an indicated 220 mph. Why did you only had yours for only 6 mos. I couldn't believe mine is almost 16 years old.

My first new bike was a 2003 Z1000. I fitted a set of Mivv pipes to it, that was an awesome sounding machine. The H2 is my second new bike.


My first bike was a Honda MB5. There have been about 40 other bikes between then and now... The shed currently has the H2, a W650, A K7 GSXR600, A '83 RG250, a MT50, a Z50 and a Yamagamma project bike...

What do you think of the MT-09? A mate at work is looking at possibly buying one but is concerned with the fuelling. Also, have you done any pillion riding at all?

This bike was the most thrilling moment at the time for me. The only thing I did to the bike was purchased a spare set of rims and had it powder coated in polished aluminum finish. This thing is still very powerful to me. I only put in less than 2000 miles so technically it's not even broken in yet. I still think it is one of the best looking bikes today. And yes, I still own it.

KawieH2R Thank You, I have owned a lot of machines and they were all Great


The 2000 ZX-12R had Winglets on the side fairings 15 years before the H2R


Your bike is a collectable right now with the low miles and original owner status


At the moment I have only one bike, a 2015 GSXR1000 and I Like It A Lot!!!

The picture of the SR 250 brings back memories for me , I brought one before my 17th birthday and almost polished it away as a sixteen year old boy ( in my head I was a bad*arse biker )
Impressive as your list is its crying out for a classic, be it Japanese from the 70s or 80s or even an old Triumph . Try one ,at first you will think it's a dangerous ,under braked ,rubber framed , pile of cr*ap with pen springs for forks but slowly like an older woman you will fall for her charms.
