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.

1 for each style of road riding, still think I need a naked bike to round out the fleet but the other 1/2 disagrees. Maybe she'd go for a classic Beemer?

In the garage

It's almost a done deal.. 03 K12 GT to go along with the
01 R1150GS, 95 R100GS and R90S.

Any one longing for an AIRHEAD project .. I have three that I'm selling.
I just don't have the time to wrench ..rather be riding.

The Pencil has his K1200RS, R1150R and K75
I have My K1200RS

We also decided a stealthy black K1 and a VMax were essential to keep things interesting along with a diesel Bobcat 753 for power gardening, snow plow duty and maintaining the neighborhood balance of power.

The Bobcat is easily as much fun as any bike but the vistas are somewhat limited.

Life is good but the weather isn't. Best Holiday wishes to all.

So you have a '74 R90S, wow!

Was this the bike on the cover of Cycle magazine with the question: Is any bike worth $3,000? or something to that effect, then the article went on to say it did everything better than most bikes.

well...

1977 CB400f Supersport
1979 CB650
1982 CB750f Supersport
1982 CB900f Supersport
2001 Triumph Daytona
2003 Aprilia Tuono R
2004 K1200RS

The 750 was my first bike, the 400 I bought from the original owner with 10k miles, the 900 I bought for the seat ( long story..) the 650 I adopted out of symapthy ( my 13 year old needed a garage project anyway ) the Daytona is the last of the " good " body style, the Tuono is one of the limited production bikes ( #203 out of 225 ) and the K is my "going places " ride.

It all makes sense to me, at least.
