What's the worst bike you ever had?

I spent some times talking about that with friends last week-end and laughed a lot .
My worst was surely my first bike. XL80s 1985. I was 13 years old.

The other bike was an RZ350. The first one I bought was in mint condition but parts fell off at an alarming rate. I used Loctite everywhere and finally had enough. I sold it and bought another one and same thing. After that, it took me a long time before I'd consider another Yamaha. The new Yamahas are so good that it's hard to believe the same company made both bikes.

It does everything, just not very well. It is a sheep in wolf's clothing as far as getting off-pavement is concerned. A big, fat, heavy, high-geared, low-powered, no-suspension sheep!! BAAAA! Great for around town. No way it will keep up with the little squirts... they even have more suspension travel on their 50cc Cobras!! It will make someone very happy for the price I have on it. It is just a piece of factory "dual-sport" misleading hype which has forever turned my stomach on 'Zukis. BAAA! My dumb mistake...

An evil handling machine with a nasty motor that would not put power to the ground. This bike taught me never to buy a 1st year motorcycle. This lesson I apparently didn't learn very well since I bought a WR 400 in 1998.
The Yamaha purchase didn't haunt me like the '81 Honda did.

In its defense though, I didnt do a whole lot of maintenance work to it.
The absolute worst bike EVER though was my 95 XR600. It was a dog, a pig and any other animal name you can think of. Had to have someone pull start me every ride and dumped more money into the motor than I could have bought a new bike for.
I can still recall the days of sitting at the bottom of the hill...
Buh-buh-buh..(kicking it) me - SH*T!!
buh-buh-buh.... Me- Sh*T!!!!!!
buh-buh-buh.... Me- SH*T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
