Your Motorcycle History

Inspired by another thread, I thought it would be cool to post some pictures and a brief description of previous motorcycles you've owned.
Sort of a timeline showing the path that brought you to the K1600.

Here's my path...

1. '75 Kawasaki G5C-100 Enduro (Red) - Restored in 2002
2. '80 Kawasaki KZ440LTD (Black)
3. '81 Kawasaki KZ750LTD (Black) - No picture
4. '82 Honda V45 Magna (Maroon)
5. '86 Honda GL1200 GoldWing Aspencade (two-tone Silver)
6. '98 Honda GL1500 GoldWing SE (Two-tone Silver)
7. '01 Honda GL1800 ABS GoldWing (Illusion red)
8. ’09 Honda GL1800 Goldwing ABS (Candy Black Cherry)
9. ’09 Kawasaki KLX250S Enduro (Red/Black)
10. '14 BMW K1600 GTL Exclusive (Mineral White Metallic)

its shouldn't be the number of motorcycles you've owned but the places you've been, although I've had a few

Never made any reference that the amount of motorcycles owned has anything to do with anything....
I suggested it might be cool to see a history of motorcycles each member has owned previous to the K1600.

Why can't it be both?

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full.
All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Cool idea. If it spawns another idea, create another thread.

1. Several family mini-bikes in the '70s
2. Several dirt bikes over the years: 125cc and 250cc
3. Late '70s Honda Moped
4. '75 Honda XL 350
5. '75 Honda 750 four
6. '80? Kawasaki GPZ 1100
7. '80? Honda CB1100
Then a family, and later...
8. 2006 Honda VTX 1300 R
9. 2003 Honda VTX 1800 R
10. The Big K
