YAMAHA 60

What can I say...my first. 

Yamaha 100 Trailmaster, 1967

 This is the same type of Bike that I bought from Ira Dahm, only mine was yellow. 

Kawi 71

 That's me chanting to the sun god (actually pushing my hair back)and Bill Koppler playing god. Kurt Moseley clicked the camera. That's his MG in the back ground. Note the plastic pot plant next to my front wheel. This was shot on Serena St. in Linda Mar.  Man, I miss those pants!!

 As with of all of my bikes, this one was especially fast. Note the custom made chrome twin expansion chambers. I beat most of the big 350 Hondas of the
day. 

Yamaha 500 Mack III

It would turn 12.5 seconds out of the box. Never got any tickets on this one, they couldn't catch me. The front end wouldn't stay down. The older I get, the faster I was.

 My tour bike. Gary Kellogg and I did an epic journey into WA state loaded down with back packs to climb in the Olympics. This bike was horribly slow but always reliable. 

1984 Honda V30 Magna

I loved this bike, and it was fast.  Had the smoothest gear box I'd ever felt. V4, an expensive way to build a motor. Man, wish I still had this one. 

HONDA CB1400

  This bike can out handle most any bike on the rode. It has gear driven cams, 41 mm forks with big springs, carbs are jetted and breath completly freely, open pipes, redlines at 13'500 rpm, wide sticky tires, radar detecter, stops and turns on a dime and is my favorite color.     

Honda 599 a.k.a. Hornet

 CBR F3 600cc engine, had this baby for almost a decade.  Still see this bike around town, as I sold it to a local. 

Kawasaki Z400

My current bike, more in keeping with my senior years.  Lightweight, not as much horsepower, but still fast!
