...and it didn't feel that horrible when I had sold my scooter before that.

I have lived so many great moments of my life with that thing. About 40.000 miles ridden in just three years. That Kawasaki Z750S was a thing of beauty, a truly remarkable machine, that just wanted to keep going, no matter what.

It's never, ever let me down. Not a single moment. I went to many countries with them, with highlights being Lake Como, and the Swiss alps, as well as few trips to England.

That bike had a mind of its own, and I find myself having a shared history... with a machine.

Now, before anyone starts posting pictures of "this is the room of those who care", the reason why I'm posting is this: surely, I can't be the only one here having created kind of a "relationship" with a moving vehicle? I'd be interested to read your stories.

My bike, that bike, will be sorely missed.




Cheers

I had an 85 BMW K100 for over 100,000 miles that I felt the same way. Outlasted many girlfriends and one wife, hauled everything that could possibly be strapped to it including livestock and took me all over N America comfortably and quickly. Still miss that bike.

I had a '68 Camaro which I was fully restoring from the ground up. Over 7 years I went through 12000 dollars and 4 girlfriends. Every time one of them said it was me or the car, I told them; Well I'm not selling the car.  Wow! Finally on the 5th one, the car went away. My wife and I just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary last Saturday.

Why'd you sell it? Bigger bike? Car?

About 40.000 miles ridden in just three years.

Wow...A Frenchman quoting the distance in miles only! Now that's a first for me.

Bikes are not my cup of tea, but I did form that kind of "relationship" with almost every car I bought.

Let's say I also have kind of a love affair with the UK.

Why did you sell it then?

I started riding on a 50cc moped, but have moved on to bigger (relatively speaking) things now. However, I still miss that moped. It made a hell of a racket to get up to its top speed of 60 kmph, had barely any brakes, and was rusting in parts. However, my friends and I have so many stories from our late teen years linked to that moped that we all miss it, and it pops up in conversations even now, a dozen years later. I was crestfallen when I returned home for xmas in 2007 after a brief stay in the US, and found that it had been sold by my dad for the equivalent of $20. I would've paid ten times that!
