    It’s a Kawasaki ZXR with a ‘body kit’ not the best bike but it looks cool.

    Zedsdead, First 2:

    Triumph Bonneville?
    Suzuki RM250 (or is it a 125?)

    The last 2 I’m a bit lost I’m afraid.

    not bad.

    First is a T120 Bonnie (the real deal) race tuned and when it stops raining gets daily use – managed 3000 miles onit last year.

    Second is indeed an RM250. 1988.

    I’ll give you a clue for the last 2. 3rd is classic Italian. 4th is Classic Jap 2 stroke screamer…

    You’re getting close….

    I love that photo of you bounding over the hill druidh. Moto Guzzi? Is that a spot lamp on there too?

    That hill is on the "old" main road near Mallaig. It’s recently been bypassed, leaving it even more free for fun.

    It’s a Ducati Darmah, with a Dunstall fairing which I modified to fit (remember Dunstall? they had a big tie-up with Suzuki GB at one point). And yes – that’s a Cebé spotlamp. I seemed to be involved in lots of night riding, so it all helped.

    Still lost on the 3rd one, can’t think of any Italian’s making offroad bikes off hand!

    Is the last one a Yam RD350LC?

    It’s a Duke? 😕

    Hmmm, need to up my knowledge on old Dukes it would seem (says a Duke owner!)

    Wow! Katana – *dribbles even more*

    My dad still wears the old wooly socks over his boots like the photo of you there. Looks like you’re having fun, hehe

    mboy, it’s a Garelli enduro cross. Quite rare apparently?

    Zedsdead

    RD400 then?

    Not an RD350LC as the LC stood for Liquid Cooled (iirc).

    Is it a triple? Just the two inlets that are visible seen set to one side.

    TZ750 or something like but i thought they were LC too???

    Btw i got the RM model and year right before i saw the answer (honest)

    The last one is an RD200DX. When I was a young boy this was the bike of my dreams. I’ve been rebuilding it for the past 20 years lol. Always something else gets inthe way. One day….. one day…..

    The Garelli I bought when I was 13 for £3.50 from a mate. If only I could find more bikes for that kind of money…

    Yeah, only noticed it was air cooled after I’d posted that! Ooops

    druidh – do you still own any of these?

    You’ve had some really nice bikes. I’m a bit of a collector, hate to let things go. I get it from my dad. You can see what we do here. He’s just bought a rather nice milling machine.

    I sold my last motorbike several years ago. It was a 750 Paso. I just got into other hobbies and never found the time to ride them. I guess I have the time again now (as of this coming Monday I’m not employed) – I just don’t have the inclination any more!
