I bought my first Kawasaki in 1973.
For bikes my favorite is my newest, a 2008 Kawasaki ZZR600- my 70s and 80s bikes were less reliable, vibrated more and had weaker power, braking, shifting and handling. The air cooling made me sweat more in the summer.
I still own a 2002 Honda Shadow 600cc cruiser, with the old style V-twin, 4-speeds, but newer water cooling, and about half the vibration of my previous 1978 Yamaha XS650.
For the dozens of bikes you have owned or ridden, which few stand out the most?
“Do…not waste time protesting the self-inflated showmen and bloviating bullshitters who populate our culture. It’s more fun to marvel at them, to appreciate them, to be grateful for them, and to mock them relentlessly. ”-from the 2010 book American Freak Show by Willie Geist. "He wondered what difference any of it would make two hundred years from now." -from the book Cyclops by Clive Cussler.
