    My Dad had a Triumph when I was a little girl. I have no idea what year or model it was; late 70s is my guess. I wish I had the bike now. I have a photo of me on it but I don't think you can tell what model it is. I don't even know what happened to it; sad.

    If I remember right, the last year of the right hand shift, 74'

    It started first or second kick every time, Boyer ignition with a single Mikuni carb. What it did not do was stop. You can see the front disc wear.

    How could I have overlooked my '66 R69s? Sold it to put a new roof on the house. Priorities were upside down.

    I wish I would have kept my minty 2002 Honda Valkyrie standard. I loved that bike and still miss it today.

    I miss my 71 Honda CB350. Not all that great of a bike but it served me well while I was in college and dating my (then future) wife. Funny thing...she had been dating a guy who rode a BMW, an early 70's/late 60's airhead. Wonder if it was the Honda that won her over??

    I miss my Norton Commando, Honda CBX, and Ducati 900SL (Superlite). I miss the Ducati the most.

    And another one....Image (4).jpg

    Sorry about the image size!

    The rims/tires aren't stock obviously...this little Suzi began her career as the race bike for a shop in Bellevue, WA. It was pretty fast...in a straight line.

    Wish I had kept every bike I've ever owned, like the Brittish motorcyclist I met one time. He kept every one of the 52 bikes he had ever owned. The first was a '52 Ariel Square 4 that he used to get his motorcycle license in 1952.
    I asked to meet his wife.

    I wish l had my father's Triumph TR5T. Which was really a BSA. It was the first motorcycle l was ever exposed to. I was 4 or 5 and remember sitting on the tank and having the sensation of flying. Dad also had a '53 Indian but l never saw that bike run.
