The Seven Day Challenge. Bike a day for Seven days.

After much thought I have been able to put together a list and accept the Challenge.

I shall not give the bikes a certain day of the week as you just never know when the need will arise.

I will begin with my wish list and end with my current rides.

Bike One:  Honda Z50 Monkey or a CT70, I Just can't make up my mind.

Or the CT70


Bike 2:  1986 Yamaha SRX6, the high school fantasy that I should have bought.


Bike 3:  1960's BMW R25, 26 or 27.  White or Black, doesn't really matter.


Bike 4:  1996 Ducati M900 Monster,  If the dealer had done test rides I might of bought it...  A 2011 Monster 796 in satin silver would also do.


Now for my Current bikes, as I could never part with them.

Bike 5:  The newest in the garage, 2009 Kymco Xciting R250i.

Bike 6:  Lets get dirty, 2009 BMW G650X Country.  It deserved more than a 3 year run...


Bike 7:  Last but by no means least.  1996 BMW R850r.  Every time I ride the bike I'm reminded of just how much I love it.  It's not perfect and maybe that's why I love it so, or maybe it's just that my body is so familiar with it.

I get the thought every so often that I don't really need 3 bikes and that I should sell it, but a short ride later those thoughts are distant memory's.


I like a lot of bikes, but none stick in my mind like these.

See you on the road.

Awesome list of bikes you have there.

That little Z50 or Ct70 would be a hoot to scoot around on. A lot of fun packed into a small nimble bike.

Thank you for arising to the challenge.

That is really a rather eclectic list. You can even say that about the list of current bikes. I remember riding a CT70 back when I was in middle school and immediately wanted to get a job to get one (never did).

Ah, so that's what you were clearing a place for in the garage.

I can tell you put some thought into the seven bikes. You have a bike for nearly all seasons or reason to ride.

@Trobairtiz, Glad you like the list. The little bikes would be a lot of fun.

@RichardM, Thank You. My fascination with the CT 70 my have something to do with seeing some cute girls riding them in my youth...

@Circle Blue, Yes the scooter needed some room. I had planned to introduce it to the blogging world sooner, but have had some fatal computer problems. Soon though.
