            This is tricky. 1967 Yamaha 100 I think, 1971 Kawasaki 125 enduro, 1968 Triumph Tiger 650, 1970 Honda CB750F, 1978 Harley Davidson Electra Glide 75th Anniversary Special, 1992 Harley Davidson Low Rider, 2002 Harley Davidson Road King Fire Fighter Special and now my 2012 Goldwing. This does not take into account the many dirt bikes I have owned over the years and I still have my 530KTM dual sports bike. I still own and ride my Road King by the way.

                    Sure. How many kids growing up in the 50's started on something like that. How many motorcycles started out as a bike with a motor thrown in it. Qualifies as much as a CT 70 mini bike. :-)

                    No disrespect intended. I think Whizzers are super cool. You just never hear about them anymore. I would love to have one to restore.

                    No disrespect was taken, that's why the smiley faced was at the end. :-) I think I had more fun on that Whizzer than any of the motorcycles I've owned. I would love to have it again. Gave it to my little brother when I got old enough to drive and he let it get stolen. Not really his fault but he was in charge of it at the time. ;-) Sorry but I couldn't resist the mini bike remark. When I grew up everyone was making their own minibikes or go carts to play around on. No Hondas back then.

                  My introduction to the two wheeled world was a Honda Mini Trail 50.

                  Rode that for 2 years, then graduated to a Honda XL-70.

                  2 years later, (1975) got a new Honda CB-125. Should have bought another dirt bike, but I was stubborn. Rode that bike EVERYWHERE...dirt, fields, dirt roads, paved roads.....everywhere. No license of any kind, but I lived in a semi rural area, and it was a different era back then. Rode that bike until I turned 18.

                  Next bike was a Honda CB-650 custom. Kept it one year (while stationed at Ft. RIley) and then sold it before moving to Germany.

                  That was followed by a Honda CX-500 Custom. Got it from another servicemember who was returning to the states in just a few days, and needed a quick sale. Paid him $100.00 for it....rode that bike for 2 years, and sold it to my supervisor for $400 or so. Used the money from that sale to make a downpayment on a brand new 1988 Kawasaki Ninja 600R. Rode it for 2 months in Germany before I returned stateside...I then put close to 70k on that bike in the next two years. Shipped it back to Germany when I went back overseas in 1990...kept it another three, and then sold it.

                  Went bikeless for 12 years after that. Children (and the corresponding lack of money) kept me off of two wheels, until 2005.

                  I then bought a 1993 HD FLHS (precursor to the Road King). One year and 20,000 miles later, I traded it on a

                  2002 HD Ultra Classic. Kept that one for three yeas and 30,000 miles or so......

                  Traded IT in on a New 2010 HD Ultra Classic...kept that one for just over two years...put 17,000 on it, and THEN.....

                  Trade it in on a new 2012 Wing.

                  Two years later I still have the wing......30,000 miles so far, and I have No Intention of trading any time soon.

                      I've owned many bikes, but unfortunately no one told me I needed to keep track. How about "Lots" Mostly Suzukis and Hondas. Same thing about mileage... I just rode the crap out of them. In those days there was no internet and no one asking such questions.

                          OK, not only do we have a winner for most bikes owned, but we have also identified someone who seems to have either commitment issues or a serious addiction!! LOL! Nice list.
