I currently have a VT250F2D, Nothing special, 4Stroke. (was my first bike, gave it to my sister to learn on, she crashed it, and tore the sump CLEAN off it). I fixed it up, and have it as my weekend warrior !
My sis now has a 97 Model Fireblade (Tiger colour). Very quick !!!!
(You wanna know quick, Very few ppl could keep up with her, partly because she weighs 42Kg, partly because she is suicidal !!! - She was asked by Action Suzuki for sponsership for Bike racing. She turned it down for some reason.
Bike I had most fun with was a GPZ750 Turbo.
Bought it for $1200, rode it till the Head Blew.
Thing was like a mildish 2 stroke but could lift the front wheel at 140Km.
Last time I checked, I had a Violet Pearl '98 Harley Fatboy sitting in the garage collecting dust. I haven't used it since mid August - damn magazines, never get any leisure time anymore! That's it, the computers off and I'm going for a ride. Magazine, what magazine?
Hmm well i've never owned motor bikes but i've had my fair share riding em, going on the back of em and working on em.
Ok here goes riding:
Puch Maxi Moped (Man that thing was a laugh, had a race with me on a Mountain bike and him on the moped he won not much. I've ridden it a few times was only 14 at the time good fun.
Honda SL125 - First real bike ridden it around my mates back yard and went on the back of it with my mate riding Illegal no licence and only like 15 at the time, was a blast.
Dad has owned a Suzuki Bandit 1200 half fairing bike, friggin punchy as downlow not the best in the top range. Still nice bike in black.
Next bike was the ultimate YZSF 1000, 5 valve 1002cc and 145hp's of power, man this thing flew. 225km/h was a piece of cake top speed of 275km/h. Had to sell this baby for the EL we have now.
Have been on GSXR-1100's and the best bike in my opinion is the CBR 1100XX black bird, that thing was a gem.

Mint condition, fully restored 1972 Ducati 750GT - Conti pipes, Dell O'rto carbs and, finally, completely overhauled the PMG-thin wiring and turned it into something workable. Might sound sacreligious, but I think the sound of a Duke twin at full noise is the sweetest sounding mechanical symphony.....

There's no better feeling than going for a ride up through the National Park along the beaches from Wollongong. When I get back from the Vic Hot Rod Show next week, I'm taking some time off and heading away with a group of mates on their Harley's. Should be great, can't wait!
