had bikes


Some of the bikes I owned but no longer ride. Nostalgia galore ... (sob)


#1
My first street bike; 1974 BMW R90/6 with Stalama fairing and Denfeld panniers. 

Picture taken in Lill-Saivis, Lappland, -79 or -80.


Early bus
I had a 1980 Suzuki GS1000 with Windjammer fairing in 1982. It took me to Palavas-les-Flots, near Montpellier in France, on my first European tour.

Picture taken at the Saltfjell rally in Bodø, Norway.


Arctic touring
The 1980 Yamaha XT 500 was great for wheelies and winters, but not so great for Enduro (me and my bike on the left).

Picture taken on Vassara Träsk, Gällivare, probably a February day in the early 80s.


Enduro
I traded the XT500 for a 1981 Husqvarna CR430, which I rebuilt for Enduro.

(missing: the first old Husqvarna Silverpilen, and the Suzuki GS850)
