How many motorcycles do you own?

Daily riders, dirt bikes, fixer-uppers, whatever. How many motorcycles do you currently own?

Damn, Steve, I'm jealous. I only have two, both keepers. I still need to get one more to be average according to the "Statmaster".

Hey Rick, Don't be! Maintaining that fleet is a real PITA! Then you have to ride em all a little every week or they get jealous...and...well a motorcycle fight in the garage is worse than any cat fight I have ever seen. Would love to get rid of a few but SWMBO says that each one has 'sentimental' value and won't allow it. Go figure.

Now she is a keeper. I hear ya about about riding each one, it's tough to give them both enough attention, but it's fun trying.

Well 6.. but that is between my wife and I.

Mine:

92 FLSTF , 89 K100RSABS , 2004 K1200GT

Hers:

90 FLHS , 2001 R1200C

Shared:

1966 R60/2


The 66 R60/2 is a great 2 up putt putt bike to go to yard sales and take an occasional diversion down a dirt road or across a field.

The Harley's used to be the flagships of the fleet. We toured alot on them. Over 200k miles on mine and over 100k on hers. Since buying the BMW's, they've seen much less timeon the road and have become the bikes of choice to cruise around the city at night. They do it well too.

The K100rs is Mr Reliable. Do anything bike. Ready for cold and salty roads, a rainy ride to work, a long haul or a short blast. Starts right up with I swear a half a press of the button. Great bike to just have around.

The K1200GT and the R1200C and the main machines that my wife and I ride now. 16k miles since March on the GT. With a Two Bros and a Ztech chip, I totally love my GT. Best bike that I have ever owned.


The one that I shouldn't have sold is a 78 R100S in red smoke. Wish I still had her.
