I bought the same Triumph Street Triple back after one year. I missed it as soon as I got rid. Luckily for me the garage where I got rid of it hadn't sold it after a year so I bought it back for a good price. It still makes me smile every time I get on it.

Apart from donor bikes I have never had the same bike twice. Never really thought about it but I always like to change to something different.

2 x Transalps (one 600 & one 650)
4 x Africa Twins (just bought younger and younger versions)
3 x Varaderos (1 x 125 version :P )
2 x Deauvilles (1 still with youngest son)
2 x F800GS (still got one - shouldn't have sold the 1st one :whistle: )
2 x Fazer 600 (a '98 model and then an'02 version)

Never bought a new bike. Been the 2nd owner of several of the above machines, plus two that I currently have, a CBF1000 and a F658GS Twin.

Think thats about it.
