Street bikes:
1984 Honda 450 Nighthawk (sold after 7000 km in half a season)
1987 Kaw Ninja 750 (bought new/noncurrent, sold after 118,000 km to get ...)
1994 Kaw ZX9R (bought new, sold after 118,000 km to get ...)
2004 Kaw ZX10R (still have, with 77,000 km on it)
In parallel with that, I bought a 1990 Yamaha FZR400 as a spare for my roadrace bike (see below) which I restomodded last year and obviously still have it.
And, I bought first a 2007 Honda cbr125r then sold it after 40,000 km and bought a 2011 cbr125r to replace it (still have it, 30,000 km on it). I ride this more than the bigger bikes.

Track/roadrace bikes
1989 Kaw EX500 (kept 4 years, sold that to get ...)
1989 Yamaha FZR400, which I still have and very much love.

I couldn't even begin to to figure this out....
In 1974 I started with a 1972 Kawasaki Trail Boss 100. That's a long way back.

My most memorable bike was my Suzuki RG-500 Gamma race bike. I loved that thing.

I also loved my Yamaha DT-175 Enduro.

My favourite bike that I have right now would be my Gixxer 1000. Fast, fun, good for track days and even long multi day highway trips.

French newbie

I am 57, living in Cannes, France. To stay short my last 4 bikes were ZZR 1400 (ZX 14 in US): 2008, 2010,2012 and now the 2014 Performance Sport with Ohlins and Akrapovic equipment.
No chance to have the H2 in France in 2015! Because of a stupid law (max 100hp). But everything should be ok for 2016 ( thanks to Europe laws ).
I plan to buy the new H2 ( in 2016) and I am waiting for the first test ride in any country! Who will be the first one?
P.S don't worry my ZZR is free ( as we say here), it means 200hp... at least!

Mine's a H2 (as is the one on order for a customer) - we did have a customer put money down on a H2R within an hour of it being unveiled at Intermot but he backed out when the noise level was revealed (no tracks in the UK or France where he could use it for trackdays because it's too loud !)

Is Pete talking about 16 H2's in total for the UK or H2R's ?
