We have all had one at some stage of our lives. Mine was a Yam XS650, not but I dislike the bike, it’s just that mine was possessed or something! Really grew to hate it.
I wont mention the HD! (never again)!!!

My worst was a 1978 Kawasaki KH250B5 that I hand in 1986 for a while.
About as dependable as Arthur Daley or Del Boy!!
For the 15 mins at a time I could get it to run properly it was lovely.
Most of the time – junk. Broke down 3 or 4 times in 7 miles once!!
The centrestand collapsed etc etc etc etc
Never had another Kwak…now Yamahas..another story altogether!

The worst bike I ever had has got to be a crappy Yamaha RXS100. Damn deathtrap that used to wobble badly when it was going anything but in a straight line! Rear suspension was shagged! No stand, centre or side. Use to have to lean it up against a wall! Unreliable? It used to spend most of its time in the shed cos it was well and truly knackered!
Rebel with a cause!
The roads are my race track!!

Funnily enough I have quite fond memories of an RXS 100 although the one I rode was quite new and in good nick.
My worst bike was an old ’84 GPZ 750 – absolute rubbish, went like a bag of spanners and didn’t really handle at all.
Eventually blew it up following my mate on his 916 !! Bought a Fireblade the following week October 14, 2004 at 10:02 pm #20739jimz1Participant
The worst bike was a 85 BMW R100RT unless you are planning a world trip or sit back wiyh the oipe and slipers Dont Touch.
Best Bike Yamaha YZF1000r Thunderace the one I drive now.
