Bikes owned before your Road Star

Years ago i started riding with a Triumph Bonneville that i chopped. Then came a 1948 HD Pan Head springer, wish i had capt it.The next bike was a brand new Kawasaki KZ 1000 that i put kerker exhaust on and rejeted the carbs,still the fastest bike i have ever owned. I then moved to N.C. 2 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and bought a Kawasaki 1000 LTD and spent 10 yrs. riding the Mtns. I moved back to FL. and bought a Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom that i had four 4 yrs. and traded it on the 07 Road Star Silverado Midnight i now own.

Rather than detail all of the bikes I've owned over the last 40 years I will give you a rough tally.

3 x Triumphs
2 x BSAs
12 x Jawa/CZ
7 x BMWs (airheads and K series)
1 x Royal Enfield
2 x MZs
1 x Honda
2 x Suzuki
1 x Kawasaki
and finally my Midnight Star.

Think I will have the Star a while yet.
