    We’ve all had that one bike that in hindsight we regret selling, what was yours?

    For me it was my mildly modded R80G/S with larger R100GS Bumblebee tank, custom rider seat and full staintune exhaust

    This bike was so much fun, light weight for a big bike at ~185kg wet, low CoG, and with a very responsive throttle.

    Share what your regretful sale was, it doesn’t have to be an adventure bike.

    ’82 XL250r. Nothing flash. Bought it 6years ago, cheap with a busted motor, patched up with slightly less knackered parts. Was a pearl of a bike,quiet, comfy low seat, 6speed, simple as an axe.
    Several thousand km’s later decided to move to bigger better bike. Stupid, stupid, should have just kept it.
    Bigger aint always better……
