so far

Kawasaki KH 125 (mate snapped the kickstart)

Honda CG 125 (utterly fantastic learner/commuter bike)

Yamaha Divvy 600 (first big bike - did the job but heavy and under powered as restricted to 33bhp)

Kawasaki ZXR400 (first restricted to 33bhp then full power - great fun but far too small for my lanky 6ft frame)

Suzuki GSXR 750 (loved every second on it - only sold as laid up for 2years after op.)

Honda FX650 (lightweight upright bike after near enough 2 years of not riding after op - absolute pile of crap, leave well alone)

Honda VTR Firestorm (stunningly well looked after, V-Twin torque was amazing but 70mile tank range was not!)

Honda CBR900rr Fireblade - only had for 3 weeks and cant get enough of it. Blisteringly quick, agonisingly beautiful in yellow/blue and I get butterflies just thinking about riding it.

Never had more than one bike at once.

Honda CB50J (£105 without MOT.) - Did it up, Kept for a few months and a few hundred miles. Traded in once I passed my test. Wish I had kept it as there is only one left in the UK...

Suzuki GSX250 (£225). Kept for about 2 years and less than 2000 miles until mounting student debt forced me to sell. Rotted real quick, aluminimum disentigrated and electrics were awful, but it went a lot better than the similar on paper CB250N.

Honda NT650V (£3600). Kept for 3 months and 4000 miles. Nice bike but a bit big and bounced around scarily...

Kawasaki ER6F (£4200 new). Kept for 18 months and 36000miles. Perfect bike for me. smaller and easier to ride than the Deau. More fun too but that tank is much too small. Comfy upright riding position, nice beat from the exhaust. Surprisingly good wind protection from the fairing (considering).

Kawasaki 250R (£3600 new). Kept for 15000 miles and 9 months. Thought it would be cheap to run and go 2 days on a tank (which it did). However much less fun to ride than the ER6. Economic on tyres. MPG better than the ER6 but not outstanding. Insurance ridiculously high. Very cold and wet ride when not in the summer.

Honda NT700V (£6200 new). Kept for 15000 miles and about 9 months. Tyre wear and petrol consumption was surprisingly high. Lacked the sparkle of the BMW. Beautifully comfy and warm though and the only bike I had suitable for touring the UK in the winter (or in a very wet summer either).

BMW F800S (£3600 s/h). Still kept. Currently done about 20000 miles and just over a year. Not the best bike for people with Chronic Osteoporosis when in traffic (my bones ache) but good fun and a great "do everything not too bad bike." Much cheaper to run than any of the above bikes (including the 250). Belt drive is particularly good feature. Petrol tank is too small.

James 125 two stroke,  BSA B31,  BSA Gold Flash,  Norton Dominator 99.

If I still had the above bikes I would be a rich man.  A break from biking then :

Kawasaki GPZ1100,  Suzuki GSX 600F,  BMW K75s (rubbish),  Honda CBR 1000F,  Honda Pacific Coast,

Suzuki Burgman 400.

All the above gone;  Present bikes are Kawasaki ZZR1100 and Honda VFR 750FL.

 

Wish it would stop raining and I could get my pension and go for a ride.
