Bikes I have owned
Click on any picture for a better view.

1972? Suzuki FR50
1978 to 1979
 Everybody has to start somewhere. This was my first bike.

1974 Honda TL125K1
1979 to 1981
This classic Honda trials bike was one of the best bikes I ever owned.  It could go anywhere and do anything !

1976 Honda TL250
This not a picture of my one but it looked the same.  The extra power was not worth weight, the TL125 was a better ride off road.

1978 Suzuki GS1000E
My first big bike, I still have the number plate, 46DYD.

1979 Suzuki GS1000L
My first custom style bike.

197? Yahamaha 400 twin
It may have been an XS400, this is not a picture of my actual bike.

1976 Honda TL125K2
This not a picture of my one but it looked much like this.

1986 Suzuki GN250
The first new vehicle I owned.

1986 Suzuki LS400 Savage
Way underpowered for a 400cc and scraped the pegs in corners way to easy.

Tony learnt to ride on this bike.  This picture show my mother on the back !

1990 Honda/Suzuki 250
A Honda XR250 motor in a Suzuki 2 stroke frame.  Couldn't get the motor to start.

1986 Honda TLR250
1996 Current
The only 4 stroke Trials bike I have seen with monoshock suspension of this era.  The ultimate wheel machine this bike holds true to the spirt of  original TL125.  I still have this bike and don't plan to ever sell it as it is just too much fun.

Not a picture of my actual bike.

Used this bike in Zaporizhzhia as basic transport due to Ukrainian vehicle onwership laws.  A very dear and close friend was kill while riding this bike.  The worst day of my life :-(

1986 ИМЗ УРАЛ 8 (or translated an EMZ URAL 8)
