    Cool Motorcycles you wish you had kept~

    If you have been riding a while, I bet you have one. I wish I still had the Honda Mini-Trail 50......Judging by what they sell for, might have been a good investment to have half a dozen.

    What do you wish you kept?

    This should be a fun post! I definitely wish I still had my '89 Yamaha TZ250 & FZR400 race bikes!

    I have two I wish I still had today...first a 1975 Honda CB550F and second, a 1990 R100 that was transformed into a smoked red R100RS.

    I have found memories of the Honda XL 70 I learned on and the Honda XL 175 I rode as a teenager, but I'm not sure I wish I still had them. I out grew the XL 70 by the time I reach a teenager. I do kinda wish I still had my Honda 450 Nighthawk I had in college. It was a good bike to ride around town on and I really like the looks of the Nighthawk series. (sorry no photo available)

    1966 Honda 305 Super Hawk. Rode many crazy miles and took all the stupid chances a sub-20-yr-old rider tends to do. Raced my buddies up Mt. Tamalpais at night with headlights off so we could see the showers of sparks from our dragging mufflers. For those of us who didn't have the bucks for a Brit roadster, this was a most special machine: OHC, 28 hp, nimble and cheap ($600 in the day). Rode across the Nevada desert all night at 85 mph. Nostalgia? You bet! And all true.

    Oh yes, the Honda 305 Super Hawk. What a great bike. Definitely the ONE I wish I'd kept.

    Those 70's CB550's are hot resto-mod bikes right now!

    We have similar tastes. Back in the late 70's I rode a Honde 550 Four from Edmonton AB to Oaxaca MX and all over Mexico then back to Alberta.

    I still own my '82 R100RS which I just rode from Vancouver BC to Harleysville PA for the 40th anniversary rally hosted by Todd Trumbore.
    The bike was repainted just before the trip so when Hans Muth who designed this amazing machine arrived at the rally I asked him to sign one of my side covers. So a tiny bit of it's creator is now along for the ride.

    In an attempt to allay my regrets about the S, I ordered one of these yesterday to be delivered in May at the factory. It leans the wrong way in corners, but it rides pretty well.
