1983 - something my dad bought from grand auto store that had 5-star mag wheels (did my first wheelie on it, immediately after i learned how to bail before you land on you neck while attempting to wheelie)
1986 - some 10-speed from kmart that managed to last me 5 years without oiling the chain
1991 - some toys-r-us mtn bike that i replaced stickers and convinced everyone i had a giant iguana... which got stolen when i was in the driver's training trailer on a saturday morning.
1994 - rigid aluminum trek mtn bike with grip shifters. i think it was the first year grip shifters were offered from trek. surely biking wouldn't get any better than this!
2000 - spec rockhopper pro... 80mm of rock destroying suspension!
2003 - santa cruz heckler... somehow its the biggest but lightest bike i've owned since the raider's last superbowl win
My list is pretty short, but I've loved riding each of these bikes...
Nishiki Sport - Sold.
Bianchi Strata LX - Retired and sitting in my garage, but rode heavily before getting hooked on mountain biking.
2001 DiamondBack XR1 DBR - Ride every other day
2006 Titus Moto-Lite (Aluminum) - I broke the swing arm mount on frame. Titus is repairing.

Whew, that was a lot of work. I think I'll lay down now.
Murray 24" BMX Cruiser in about 1982
Kmart-special hot pink and neon green MTB in about '90-'92
Sears branded "cross"(training) bike with MTB style and road wheels in '93, rode that thing all over Seattle when I first moved here.
Blue Shogun MTB, bought from Play It Again Sports in Northgate in '94, my first messenger bike and it came with those silly Scott MTB aero bar things (which later got cut off to about 20" wide for serious high speed whitelining)
Some kind of Diamond Back MTB, was neon orange when my friend bought it from a pawnshop at first and Pike, then he painted it rattle can green. Under heavy messenger work the rattle can got roughed off by constant locking and banging and the bike ended up a lovely multi-layered orange/green/bare steel mix. Lasted forever.
Kona Hahanna full rigid, tan, with the original Project Two fork. Great bike. Bought used from a friend mostly stock, ended up spec'ed with full XT and Syncros group with a CK threaded headset (purple, of course) before it got run over in Seattle's beautiful Lake Union neighborhood. It gave it's life for me, as that accident was the closest I have ever come to death (that I know about).
GT Avalanche, brushed aluminum, with a Ritchey rigid steel fork and the surviving remnants of the group from the Hahanna. Purchased for me by the driver in the above-listed accident's insurance company. Sold when I switched jobs and need some scratch, still regret selling the Syncros tubular cranks, seatpost and bar ends that were on it.
Kona Fire Mountain, red, the last year they were steel. Another great Kona frame, lasted through two years of messenger work, ended up full XT/LX with Salsa highlights. Replaced the crappy R(eally)S(uspect)T(echnology) fork with a Project Two rigid.
Iron Horse SGS Sport ('03). First freeride bike, not bad. Broke the frame after two seasons.
Kona Smoke Commuter. Yet another great steel Kona, still have this bad boy, which just became nearly all XT.
Iron Horse Yakuza Waka-Gashira. Not bad for a freeride hardtail, but ultimately too piggy to do it all. Sold it last September and still in the market for an All Mountain bike that can handle freeriding.
Iron Horse Yakuza Kumicho. Good in a way, but too big for me. As an aside, I will never buy another single pivot bike.
Fetish Cycles Obsession DJ/park bike. Fun, light and single speed all the way!
'06 Transition Dirtbag, newest member of the family! It sports many aof the parts from the Kumicho, with Azonic Outlaw wheels and an X.7/Saint/RF Diabolus custom group.

Old-School Knight Rider themed Big-Wheel (plastic wheeled, plastic-bodied trike, direct-drive front wheel). I was TINY when I had this. 3 or so.
A huffy kids' bike for my 5th birthday (1984). Don't remember the model. All black and BMX styling without actually being a BMX bike. Had the number 7 all over it. Fixed gear, coaster brake. Ditched it when we moved in '88
Huffy Challenger. Typical cheapo 20" BMX bike. I got it for Christmas in 1986. I was still riding it in 1990. I don't know what happened to it.
Brown Raleigh Three speed. Old, probably late 70s. My grandfather found it on the side of the road (to be picked up by trash truck). I thought it was lame, but it was alright. I wonder if my parents still have it. Hmm... I got it in '90 but my dad made it his soon after since I didn't ride it.
Blue unknown-brand heavy-ass 10-speed road bike. probably from the 70's too. Same pile the raleigh was in. This bike was HOT STUFF for me. And it was fast as hell...until I tacoed a wheel in a pretty high-speed wipeout on gravel (I don't know what I was thinking riding it on gravel). '90 to '95.
Mt. Something x-mart mountain-bike. Mt. Hood? Mt. Horn? Mt. I bought-it-at-kmart. Whatever. First actual mountain bike. Put through hell and back. Got it in '94, stopped riding in '97 when I got out of high school (and then I got fat as hell, got married, etc). I broke it out in 2002 again, had to replace a bunch of stuff. Destroyed the freewheel rear wheel, needed new cables, new brakes, and the BB was disintegrating. Kept riding it, eventually BROKE the front wheel (broke a spoke, cracked and bent the rim, and tore the tire completely open) doing some off-road crap. Threw it away. I was done cycling.
2006 Next Power-X DS 26. Wal-mart. $60. Awwwww yeaah. August '06. Started commuting for fun and fitness. Broke the rear freewheel in about 6 weeks. Sold on craigslist for $25 as-is. I was hooked again.
'99 Diamondback Sorrento, late Sept. '06. $100 used at the LBS. Awesome bike. Just got in from my first snow/slush/ice commute. I've put a few hundred miles on it already. I love it to death! Still have it.
'98 Diamondback Outlook, Early nov. '06. Almost free on craigslist. Guy got it for xmas in '98, and then never, ever rode it. I replaced the cheapo freehweel rear wheel with a cheapo (yet more bulletproof) Shimano/Alex freehub wheel. Great bike at a great price. Still have it.
