Just my opinion, for what little it is worth…
My top 10 Great Bikes
1. Yamaha RD350YPVS – best bike I ever had, pure fun.
2. Yamaha RD500YPVS – best bike I never had, go bang at 20k apparently
3. Vincent Black Shadow – Do I need to explain?
4. Ducati 916 – The best looking bike ever? Pity I’m too fat to fit on one properly!
5. Triumph Bonnerville (Proper one…)- Just look cool and sound lovely
6. Honda C90 – 20 million people can’t be wrong – can they?
7. Honda CBR900R Fireblade – Wild and still amongst the best.
8. Suzuki RG500 – Just nutz!!
9. Honda RC30 – Engineering on wheels – looks stunning, sounds spine tingling.
10. Mot Guzzi LeMans – Blunt instrument, but beautiful somehow, rode a V years ago and loved it.
What is everybody else’s top 10?
My worst 10 bikes
1. Kawasaki KH250 – The worst bike I ever had the misfortune to own, but was sweet for the few seconds it would run Ok. Buy an RD!!
2. Honda Goldwing (especially the 1800)- Just not my “thing”
3. Most Harleys (Except XR models)- I don’t “get” the whole Harley thing, I am sorry. Can I still go to Daytona?
4. Aprilla 6.5 – Just horrible.
5. Suzuki LS650 Savage – why?
6. BMW K1200LT – Too big, too bank manager…
7. Kawasaki Z750 Twin – How could the people who gave us the Z900 do this?
8. Honda CJ360T – After the CB450 Blak Bomber this was just a bad bike.
9. Norton F1 – Not the racer – which was just awesome, but the overpriced road bike.
10. Ariel 3 – Funny, but wierd.
Sorry if I have upset anyone. In reality there is no such thing as a bad bike, just levels of good!
