I never had a bike I truley hated, my 1st dualsport was a 1971 suzuki TS125 , it was just too old and never ran right. My 1st true street bike was a 82 honda 450 Hawk, Great bike to learn on, and only cost me $200.
My favorite bike to date, which I still have, is my 2001 Suzuki SV650. I never could find any downfalls to that bike, small, fast & fun (Its starting to show its age with over 40k miles). I had a 2007 FZ6 last year, but never felt comfortable on it, the bike and I never meshed right. So, I traded that bike in on my 2011 FZ8, in my opinion it has better looks, mid range power and comfort that the 6. Its really growing on me and I feel it will become my new favorite bike after I get a chance to put some real miles on it!
(why don't we get the naked version of the FZ1 in the U.S.? Who needs a fairing anyways?)

It is possible to Ride safe and still have FUN!!!

Bike I hated

Had a 1971 BSA Lightning Scrambler in Creamsicle orange that I tried really hard to like, but it was just impossible. The worst bike I ever had, and the first one I ever bought new. Electrics sucked. Gauges worked whenever they wanted. Oil-in-the-frame backbone cracked at the base, leaking oil directly onto my rear tire. Carbs leaked no matter what I did, and I'm convinced that the cases were porous.

After giving up on it as an owner, I sold it to a guy. As he was loading it onto his truck to take it away, he dropped it from the bed onto the primary case, crushing a huge hole into it. I know he looked for a replacement primary cover for months. Dunno if he ever found one or not.

The only bike I ever had that I hated full time. I had a 1948 Harley panhead that I hated kind of intermittently when it wouldn't start, but that wasn't a full time thing like my hatred of that BSA was.

I can't say that I hated it, but it was a heavy top heavy pig and if it was not for the comfortable riding position I would not have kept it for as long as I did. It is basically a SV650 with a huge tank and heavy everything else.

Hi everybody,
Hope all are fine.. Actually this topic is only for motorcycles. I like all Products of Honda mainly for its stylish and gorgeous appearance. And I am having Honda Shine and my favourite too..Other makes are also good but according to me Honda is my best forever.
