Post a pic of bikes you've owned in the past

I came across pictures of some of my old bikes and it occurred to me that maybe a thread for "pictures of bikes you've owned in the past" might be appropriate. Here area few of mine:

Early on it was evident that I like low handlebars:

1982 Suzuki GS550M Katana.

There were others including a GB500 and a 1990 Pacific Coast but I don't have pictures any more.

Jan 2022 EDIT: This thread started w/ good intentions but then fizzled. A year and a half later it seems to have come back to life so an edit is in order:

I finished the the '75 CL360. 378cc w/ Suzuki pistons, CB500T tank, Kawi Ninja 500 forks & swinger, Yam R1 foot pegs, and other junk bolted together. Took me so long to finish it that by the time it was done it really wasn't what I wanted any more... so I sold it.

And replaced it w/ a '04 BMW R1150R Rockster. However, like @DesmoDog says below about his Aprilla, I just couldn't seem to bond with it. It was a wonderful bike w/ lots and lots of power, comfortable and dead reliable but not bonding w/ it and physical issues related to getting older brought on its sale.

Nice rides mate - friend of mine had a PC800 for a season, we called it The Beluga. Rode like the thing was on rails though, comfy as heck.

#2 was an RD 350 track bike made out of three bikes (so does that make it 2, 3, &4?). It's #907, I haven't got any good pics of it

#4 was a Honda Hawk... if I have pics I don't know where they are

#5 May have been a KDX250, not sure of the exact order around this time.

Ducati Bitsa Yes, it's a hardtail. An early picture, progress has been made since the photo but it's another stalled project at this point. It was my answer to the over tired, underbrakes, over sized choppers that were so popular back in the day.

#14 2015 Monster 1200S

#15 1991 Ducati 851 My dream bike back in 1991. Here it is from last Monday, it filled in for bike #16 when that one wasn't ready for a trackday.

#16 2003 Aprilia RSV Mille R which I set up for track use. This is how it looked when I sold it because I just couldn't bond with it.

But the big news is, the beloved Monster 1200S went away to make room for... wait for it... another non-Ducati. The streak is officially broken.

2020 Moto Guzzi V85 TT. A bike better suited for how I imagine I'd be spending my retirement (in 2021)

Then I started looking for a M900 Monster, as stock as possible, when I stumbled across this and decided to replace my RSV with it.

And that's it for now, but things may change in the spring...
