As a little fella (early 1970s) Honda 50 shared with my big brother.
Then a two stroke Yamaha 80 with the cool chrome rear springs
Mid teens and L plates a Yamaha 185 chook chaser
P-plate bike was an RZ250R
Off P-plates and traded to an RZ500R (insane, bonkers, death wish)
Went off bikes for many years but rode some mates bikes.

We used to buy those things just for the engine. Dump the bikes and fit the engines into TQ speedway cars  ;D

Bloke in my old club has one sitting in his garage.. his brother bought it new, snowy got it off brother... rode it for a year... been sitting in shed since mid 80's.....

I also know of a late model TZ500 sitting unloved with a complete rebuilt engine.. Mounty restored it after it sat for 10yrs, crashed it 6 mths later at Oran, then beat Shit out of the bloke behind the garages that cut him off.  Then he sheded the bike and its still at his dads

Back last xmas I was visiting family and got my mum to take a photo of me on the new FJR. It was taken in the exact same spot she had taken a photo of me on my GS1100G in 1992, 23yrs earlier. Ahh, how nostalgic.  ;D

I imagine that the one finger braking technique wouldn't have been as effective on the 1100. :D

Yeah, the one finger pose.  8)
The GS brakes were pretty good in their day and grabbing too much front once saw me on my butt wondering what had happened. The FJR is a whole different world with interlinked ABS stoppers. No chance of locking up the front and spudding in on this beastie.  ;D
