The most viscous thing I ever rode was a KX500.
That thing nearly ripped my arms out of the sockets at the shoulder when it hit the powerband. Scared me ****less and I never rode it again.
I'm a big lad and you virtually had to sit on the fookin petrol tank to keep the fookin front wheel anywhere near the floor...!!!
Would love another go now though...!!!
No bike for me anymore but if I live closer to work (later in the year if things go well) I will talk Mrs Unit round for somthing for somthing for the weekends and a summer time commute.
Was thinking of somthing I can work on and learn how to fix and tinker with myself. Need to build up my skills for restoring a classic 1990 Porsche 911. Figure this is a good place to start.

I rode this for about 2 years
cagiva mito - Google Search
And passed my test. Went to the shop and signed up to a part ex and a finance deal for one of these straight away.
aprilia rsv mille r - Google Search
Took it back within an hour.
I would have killed myself if I'd have kept it any longer.
Booked driving lessons that very afternoon and got my old bike back.

Great post @thfcire and F**k me respect to @Adam h...
I got into bikes as part of my mid-life crisis some 8 years ago when I did a Direct access in a week, and now have three, nicely wedged together in a single garage....
Triumph Tiger '03 (not the new one more like a GS) use this for touring have done Pyrenees, Pico's, Alps, Stelvio Pass, Scotland etc.
Ducati ST4 S, Sports touring for weekends
Blade '06 model - Sunday morning's and trackdays, Brands x 3 and Silverstone x 3 so far.....
If I knew how to paste some pics I would, they're all black and they are my passion when I'm not trying to arrange Spurs banners....!!!!
For my 50th in a couple of years going to the Himalaya's on a Royal Enfield Bullet with 4 mates....

I have always been into bikes ever since i was about 8 when my step dad took me on the back of his brand spanking Triumph Daytona 595 (which at the time as the most beautiful bike I had ever seen, in a goldy yellow too)
when I was 18 I told my mum i was going to do my CBT, she went mental, although she has a full motorbike licence and told me not to do it, so as any 18 year old would i went and did it!
my first bike I bought from a friend of mine, he bought it when he was living in itally, but i had been imported with English plates, it was a Honda NSF125R 88 model, loverly bike, the first day i got it I went for a ride with my mate on his kwaki 400 and my little 125 (which was more like a 180, after my mate and his dad bored it out) kept up with them! The bike was sooooo juicy though and with only a little tank i was filling up every 50 miles!
I eventually got knocked of the bike which was no fault of my own (hit and run) at about 70mph which luckily only resulted in a ruptured ligament in my thumb, but it knackered the bike
I sold the bike for spare about 6 months after buying it! As I was using the bike for cummuting I had to buy something quickly and ended up with a Aprillia SR125 scooter… that was pretty nippy but sooooo dangerous as there was no weight on it and at the time I only weighed 10 stone!
Unfortunately now after crashing the scooter in a patch of diesel I had to sell that and have nothing now, got a car, but I will do my CBT and full bike test this summer I think!
