Gixxus So for me.

Bikes titled in my name:

1980 50cc Honda Iowa Express (hey, the DMV said it's a motorcycle) :-)
1972 Honda CB 175
1972 Honda CB 500
1980 Honda CB 900 Custom
1991 Honda CB 750 Nighthawk
2002 Yamaha FZ1
2013 Kawasaki Z1000
2016 Suzuki GSX S1000FA

Bikes I had full access to as my brother owned them and I fixed / restored them:

1972 Honda CB 350 Scrambler
1986 Honda Rebel 450

Along with MANY test ridden motorcycles.

Not a huge list but enough. ;-)

Mythic i used to work for a main dealer so had the option of taking many bikes home for a weekend so my list would but up until about 5 yrs ago and discounting MV and ducati and some obscure makes etc.. i have ridden most of the different bikes. I have personally owned

MTX50 (first ever bike cost me 100 uk pounds to buy and 350 to insure loved this bike)
vespa (looking for a faster bike but was not for me)
FS1E (looked retro was old rebuilt it and was the fastest 50 out of all my friends and it was legal at the time dad made me sell it when i overtook him in his car)
TS125 ( new big bore kit plus purformance exhaust used to eat the clutch, never managed a full year without breaking something ended up restoring it to original and selling it)
RG 125 (as a birthday present this was stolen by my bike shop friends and returned later with one off paint job with naked lady in blues and purple flowing down the entire bike sold this to my brother who totaled it in 3 weeks)
RG 250 ( first race bike sold to upgrade to compete in 500 singles class)
RG 500 ( second race bike)
GSX-F 400 (had this for several years custom gold frame and black fairings with gold trim then it started smoking i did the valves pistons rings etc. never figured out why it always smoked was offered a straight swap with GSXR 400)
GSXR 400 (sat in my garage non runner for 2 years as parts were impossible to get for the grey import friend found me some coils and ecu while in the states on holiday got it running and then neighbour's kid offered me silly money for it)
RD 400 ( good old coffin tank got given three of them all broken and i made one good one also sold almost all the usable spares most profit i ever made. burned a hole in one piston wile on M3 in uk fixed it then sold it as i didn't trust it any more)
honda Shadow v something (cant remember much except i gave it back the same day as it drank the coolant and spat it out the exhaust it did however run fine ???)
RGV 500 ( had to have one having owned the RG series sold in mint condition to a collector as i needed house deposit)
VFR 650 ( daily ride was ok bike reliable, dependable but nothing to write home about)
Hornet 600 ( daily ride was ok bike reliable, dependable but nothing to write home about cheaper to insure than VFR)
Bandit 600 ( loved this bike until someone stole it they took the bike and the street light it was chained to )
gsxr 1000 (several on and off since 02 fav was a K6 all but one gsxr were used only on track)
MV F4 (wow until it started to go wrong then it was to expensive so i sold it)
GSR600 ( nice bike modified it with a fairing did some performance improvements but could basically outride the bike sold it to my dad who still loves it)
GSR750 ( got this one cheap from a friend. Huge mistake hated this bike sold it within 3 months was better off with my 600 so i used my dads bike a lot when he wasn't looking )
MV 800 dragster ( a nice freebie as my gsx-s was delayed almost the entire bike season. Nice bike sounded like it was going to blow up any second but went really well MV are great untill the warentee runs out)
GSXS1000F (Loving it)

prob many i forgot about as i used to buy fix and sell anything i could turn a profit on but i listed the ones i remember that i rode and considered my bike rather than business
