How many bike models could you recognize by sight?

    New to the bike world and hadn’t realized the amount of brands and models of bikes being so extensive.

    How many different models of brands would be on Irish roads do you roughly think?

    How many do you think you could easily recognize? Would you be doing very well to know 50% by sight alone?

    Ah it's easy in Ireland, especially in summer. Gsxr, cbr, cbr, cbr, cbr, gsxr, GS.

    Think I might be able to recognise make rather than models you couldn't really mistake a Harley
    And all Kawasaki are green except my faster black one :-) Suzuki are Blue Honda Red
    Certainly no mistaking a Honda 50 :-) :-)

    Honda 50
    I came closer to getting killed off one of those than I ever did on the suzuki :-) many years ago

    Stopped at the junction and when the lights went green I went off in a wheelie
    Running along behind it holding on to the bars :-)

    But we had stuffed a Honda 70 engine in to it if memory serves

    Ah yeah those were the days :-)

    A disgustingly large amount of cruisers and touring bikes, probably a lot of ADV's too.

    Street bikes and racers, probably not so much.
