    98 yammy divvy, which was restricted (young gun back then) learned my trade on it, first big bike bla bla bla, 8 years later and a 636, superduke, r1, and tuono owned i realised they are not as good as i thought they were, footpegs took a pasting, as did the centre stand, and the exhausts. still can see why people own them though!

    GSX400F was the worst bike I've owned, it was comfy but the handling was crap, you could take the same bend lots of times and it would be fine then for no reason it would tank slap like a bastard. The Tuoldo is probably the next worse bike but only because I can't ride the bloody thing sensibly. It doesn't like going slow and is always on one wheel. After 3 years I still love this bike

    2008 CBR1000RR. I hated this bike. I could never get the body work back on correctly. Sold it 2 months after buying it.

    my first bike was a harley davidson 150 that didnt run . my mom bought it for me when i was 8 and we never got it going . Id push it in the back yard and then jump on befor it stopped rolling .

    biggest pos ever .

    that was almost 49 years ago

    next bike was a 73 kawasaki 125 i think enduro . not a bad bike . crashed on it tho . hit a dog at night and flipped it , got up and rode it home

    Then the fork seals,
    Then the brake master cylinder,

    I bought it as an in between bike just to tide me over it nearly bankrupt me.
    That must have been some size of carb to suck all those bits and bobs in.....A master cylinder or christsake!!!!

    Triumph speed master. 550lb mini-cruiser with that 865 parallel twin in it. Dumbest purchase of my life. I though I could use it to acclimate to cruisers. dumbass. Thing couldn't get out of its owned way and handled like a garbage truck.

    CX500 ('82). Great commuter, and trouble free riding with no chain to faff with. But when it rained brake pads magically turned into wooden blocks. Then leaning bike into turns it had a neat caracteristic of feeling like it was suddenly dropping. Scares the living daylights out of you - the first few times - whilst really quite safe, which is the safest way to get riding excitement!!

    Great engine though, albeit it gave a little wobble when rev'ed on standstill due to transverse V-twin.

    Yamaha vStar 650. Underpowered, undergeared, overweight and vibrated like crazy. Also couldn't lean for shite into corners without the footpegs dragging.

    Triumph Sprint ST (1050) , far too civilised. I told myself and the wife it would be a more relaxed way to ride, dull would of been a better word.

    Suzuki gt185 , bought it after I crashed my rd250 into an invacar ( google it kids )
    Was the biggest pos ever , and they were all like that , would get to about 65 ( mph) in 4th then into 5th and it would start to slow down , pogo suspension , crap brakes , but it had air horns on it , ones that played different tunes ,cool as

    The other hated one was also a Suzuki dr650 rse that I bought to slow down , Christ I hated that thing , crap build quality , crap design , crap bike , suzukis are crap , mostly

    Not really had a "bad" one.

    Had to tweak a few to make them suit me, but not had a real pig.
