    I don't have pics of all, but my bikes have been:
    My "kid bikes" - Honda MiniTrail both a 70 and a 50, Honda SL100, Honda CB200 (all of which I would be delighted to have now, btw)

    Then in the late 80's after many years of no riding I bought a 70 Honda CL175 K3 and got that running.
    After that:
    '89 Sportster w/ 1200 conv
    '87 blue Honda Magna
    '79 Yam Xs650 SF
    (and also this 80 I now have as project)
    2002 Suzuki SV650
    2007 Sportster XL1200L

    so now I just have the 07 Sporty and the 79 XS.
    Actually, I do have pics of some of those...maybe I'll access and post them later.
