Who all here has more than one motorcycle......and why?

This really goes for everyone who has ANY motorcycle.

I've got a 06 YZF600r for commuting , 2up riding and long distance rides. Its comfy, quick enough to have fun on and a great all around bike.

I've also got an 07 R6v for track mainly with a little street time when I want to act like a child. For the track, I'll never out ride it's capabilities, and aftermarket for it is HUGE!

Old pic of course...
R8P9784m X2 zps6747c096


I've got a couple of pit bikes for well...the pits lol Also a great tool to teach the kids on and have fun on myself.

If I could afford more, I'd have more for sure.

1994 Duc 944 SS/SP - because it is THE perfect street bike in my mind
2006 ZX10R track bike - because liter bike
2003 CRF490R tard - race/track because motards make life better
2004 CRF230F street legal - (soon to be a tard as well) play bike, pit bike, trail bike

I have a self imposed 4 bike limit in place now. Pretty happy with the current mix.

I have the VFR for pretty much doing it all. It's a jack of all trades, master of none, but I love the fat girl. I also have a GS500 that just sits in my garage. I don't ride it much on account it's got some rod knock.

I have 8 bikes. and why? easy, I had 7 and then I bought one more. Lol

But seriously all have different purposes. A little duplication and overlap but not much. Cruiser, full dress tourer, adventure texas, adventure west coast, (2) dual sports, vintage MX and two stroke enduro.

I didn't know the number off the top of my head. I went to my Geico phone app to count them up otherwise I probably would have forgot one. I have bikes spread out over 4 locations.

XR-50 street legal with a 125cc. told my self I did it so i could ride on street alot more ... have only taken it out once. TLR because it is uncommon and "old". still rails and wheelies. Also, V-twin! 07 FZ6 - comfy cheap, quiet, gets less attention than the TL "lazy cruiser" bike if you will.

I also have an Aprilia scooter and a RSV1000R race bike. Every bike fills a niche in almost every form of riding. I may still need to get an adventure/touring bike to complete the list.
