Question how many of you have more than one bike?

MH,

I was thinking today about my riding buddies. Ed has two bikes, my other friend Mike has four, my brother in law has four. My brother in Montana has two.

How many of you have more than one bike? Do you ride them all, or are some just garage queens? Why do you have more than one?

The thought has crossed my mind: maybe add a touring bike to the stable some day, a real long distance steed with capacity to go camping, etc. I am not ready at present, but it could happen. Garage space is a big issue though.

What say you MH?

ciao,
Lucydad

Currently one but many times in recent past have had two or more including sportbikes, dirtbikes and quads.

Everytime, it winds up getting to "one , one ride" syndrome and I clear space in the garage. You just do not ride multiple toys.

Now ask me if I regret selling them.

I have 8.

xr50, pw50, xr80, xr100, tw200, dr350, 2 chinese knock off mopeds. My ratio of 5:3 running:not running is the most favorable scenario I have ever had. Thinkin of picking up a Ducati or Harley pretty soon too.

I have also owned an 89 GSXR 1100 and a 2001 ZX6R

Can't have just one.LOL. Each bike has a different ride to it. cruiser for cruising, dirt for off roading, sportbike for highspeed run, mini's for minifun, supermoto for mix of street and offroading, 4 wheeler for donuts. LOL. I love everything but can't afford much.
