    How many bikes have you owned?


    Just sitting here thinking of all the motorcycles I have owned on this cold day in Fla. ( I know its colder up north) I count 17 in 42 years so thats close to one for every 2 1/2 years.. Both street and race. Current inventory is four.. Three race one street, no wonder my wife says something has to go.. and I agree, I am out of space... I am sure someone can top that? Cheers

    Re: Now many bikes have you owned?

    Some of you guys are such whores.

    I started riding in 1987 at age 28, but took a number of years off to pursue other interests before getting back into it in 2009. Was never into the dirt thing, don't ride in the winter and started riding track only four years ago, so I don't go through bikes that fast.

    Also, while I might have room in my garage for more bikes, I don't have room in my marriage.

    1983 Suzuki GS650L
    1989 Kawasaki EX500
    2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250
    2011 Suzuki GSX-R750 (current)
    2006 Yamaha R6 (current, track bike)

    Aprilia RS125

    Ducati 900SS
    Honda VFR800
    KTM 300EXC (Current)
    Honda CRF250R (Current)
    Ducati HM1100SS (Current)

    Worst investment (so to speak) was the RS125. Worst mechanical experience was the 900SS.

    That SX125 (136) was a fun ass bike. I'd say I miss it, but my YZ125 does the job well.

    I forgot it was a 136...the only thing wrong with that bike, for me, is I’m not a good enough rider to do it justice. Vet novices and amateurs need not apply.
    Btw sorry I demeaned one of the (exact) bikes on your list, in my list haha I posted first

    You didn't demean it haha. I have to figure out what I am going to do with that bike. I am going to do street duty with either the GS500 or the GSX750. Haven't decided yet, but I am leaning towards selling the GSX750 and using the GS500 for the street.

    Now many bikes have you owned?

    That thing would be perfect for someone who wants a decent street bike but lives in a place where it’s likely to be stolen. In other words, it isnt as bad as its reputation and value would indicate
