1999 Suzuki SV650. Sold it two years later to get a 600RR, because I tried to be like the cool kids in Florida and have a supersport. I loved my 2005 600RR, but honestly I bought it to be cool. I don't regret selling this bike, and in fact sold it for $100 less than I bought it for, but it was definitely a solid bike.

Beautiful! Bought a yellow one just like it in July of 2003. That was a total game changer at the time. I even had a deposit down on a new Duc 749. While waiting for delivery I saw the 600RR in my local dealer & it changed my mind immediately.

I still think she was a beauty!

Still diggin the 03-06 looks, simple lines but perfect...

I miss that engine, it had nerves, on the 07 things are easier and more dull...

Only have one pic of it left. Ya know when people used to use film?


Year, Make, Model: 1988 Yamaha YSR50/80
Date Purchased:1991
Why you sold it: Moved across country. Didn't want to sell it but didn't have room to take it. Thing was sooo much fun. If you don't understand the saying it's better to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow you've missed a lot when it comes to learning to ride. That thing had an 80cc kit, Toomy chambers, and would do 70mph max downhill in a full tuck with a strong wind at your back. Still so much fun. 2 stroke powerband. Short wheel base. 12" wheels. 160ish lbs. All had you dancing on the shift lever like you were Wayne Rainey and hoisting it on it's back wheel out of corners still partially leaned over like you were Kevin Schwantz. You may have only been going 20-30mph but felt like a GP hero.

My consolation for selling that bike after I moved.

Why you sold it: Car at stop light decided to reverse into me as he had a last minute change of mind to switch to the next lane over which turned left. Of course, he stated that he didn't see me. After this incident, I thought it was time for a change. Traded it in for current '14 600RR. I'm still a fairly new rider with about one year and 10k miles of combined riding experience.

Date Purchased: December 2007 - Just passed my full bike test and wanted something shiny, cool, loud and with enough torque to have fun, but not crazy power to kill me :D
Why you sold it: Started going on more progressive rides with the Institute of Advanced Motorists, and I was dragging pegs round most bends... it just wasn't an 'accurate' a machine as I wanted, so I bought the RR4 in '09 and sold the Kawi in '10

Thanks!
It was a 200-70/15 Avon. The standard size was 190-something, but it left a huge arch gap. Quite a few people in the US went for a 200 to correct the speedo error, so I did the same when I needed a replacement.


There were a few who put car tyres on the rear instead though... said it didn't affect the handling much!
Lunatics!

Reason Sold: High-sided at the track my second track day out...totally my fault as I thought I had enough skill to slowly grab the front brake and correct my line mid-turn/full lean somewhere between 60-70 mph. Walked away uninjured and rode the bike off the track in fact...

Question: How do I attach a picture without it being an attachment so you have to physically click on it in order to see it?
1) Click to "Edit" post
2) Click "Go Advanced"
3) Click "Preview Changes"
4) Click on the first image
5) Copy the web address in bar located on top
6) Paste it within your post
7) Wrap the pasted link with " [img] " at the beginning, and [/img] at the ending.
8) Click "Preview Changes" to see if this worked (should have)
9) If necessary, repeat steps for additional images
10) Click "Save Changes"

(Steps 3 - 10 are only needed if not "Editing")

The attachment will still be there on the bottom, but this will also enhance the image as intended. This is the only way I know, unless someone can update with additional guidance.

Example attached below:

Year: 2001
Make: Honda
Model: NSR150SP
Bought: End of 2012, for $1000 AUD. Sold it becuase I bought a new 2012 CBR250R in early 2013 I think then sold it a year later and bought my 03 600rr for $1200.

Cannot find photos of it at the moment, but identical to this:


Ride carefully - You are invisible.
FB | YT

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

Current: 2012 Street Triple R
Sold: 2001 NSR150SP | 2012 CBR250R
RIP: 2003 CBR600RR

Alright, count me in.

'87 Yamaha Virago XV535.





Saved it from decades of sitting in a shed from a relative as a freebie with GAS in the tank the whole time. Took some serious rebuilding of the carbs and cleaning but got it chugging!

Picked it up Oct. 2012, sold Summer of 2013 to jump on an '04 Ninja 500 and get myself suited for a CBR.

That's the first moto I owned. I learned on this guy when I was still in single digits, however:

Obviously not my photo... 5 points to whoever identifies it first.
