    Re: How many bikes have you owned?

    As usual with me, it depends on how you count them.

    Bikes I've actively ridden for more than a year: 3. 1993 Ducati M900 Monster (24 years), 1962 Maicoletta 277 (2 years), 1960 Heinkel Tourist 103A1 (5 years).

    Bikes I've owned mainly for significant others: 4. 1995 Ducati M900 Monster, 1991 Honda Nighthawk 250, 1989 Honda CBR600, 1979 BMW R65

    Bikes I've ridden regularly, but for less than a year each: 7. 1991 Moto Guzzi 1000 (on loan), 1971 Honda CL350, 1964 Vespa GS160, 197? Suzuki GT380, 1971 Vespa 180, 1971 Norton Commando 750 (on loan), 1976 Honda CB360T

    Bikes I've owned for parts, as projects, or to fix up running and flip: Dozens. Mostly small-medium '70's and '80's Japanese iron, and Vespas. I did that regularly in the mid-to-late '80's as a source of income.

    Re: How many bikes have you owned?

    Since 2014

    DR350
    Kasea 50
    GS500F
    FJ1200
    GSXR750
    DR350 #2
    SV650

    (And I sort of have an '01 ZR-7... it's a long story)

    My first (DR350) is also the one I used most this last season. SV is a project that has not quite begun.. although technically I have 3 titled SV650 frames does that count as 3 bikes?

    Re: How many bikes have you owned?

    Wow, and yet somewhat comforting to know that there are idiots like myself out there in regards to foolishness of ownership of bikes of considerable numbers.

    I would keep my count of 20ish to myself out of admitting such foolishness to others. Family and friends have seen the variety over the years, however I don’t think that they ever knew of the total numbers. The total of “Functional” bike at one time I think was 6?

    What I have had & Have:
    Street, track, strip, dirt, vintage and adventure.
    Two, stroke, four stroke.
    Japanese, Spanish, Czech, British, USA and Italian.

    I know that there is a heck of a lot of bike manufacturers out there. However mine were pretty much mainstream brands. And out of the “Mainstream” brands I never owned a BMW, BSA or a Triumph. I will admit though, I have eyed a Triumph or two lately. Luckily for me my left side of my brain has kicked in and saved me. I have nothing negative about BMW, BSA or Triumph. It’s that they were never a hard target for me a guess.
    The winter time can be a dangerous time to explore the possibilities, I blame it on cabin fever.

    The greatest percentage of my bike were private purchases rather than being new from dealers.
    At this point in my life I don’t think that I will expand much more than what has been obtained to date. For me there is just no need. If I do, it could be for a new model year or a project bike. I’m kinda thinking about doing a “Rat” for a project. I think that it would be fairly easy and budget friendly. And easy to part with, without too great of a financial hit. The foolishness of the money dumped into some of these bike over the years, such financial nonsense. But what a blast with some of them.

    47 years of twisting throttles, pure fun!, and still going strong.

    Currently sitting on (4) and would like you reduce down to (3)
    The multi that I have, it gets the highest percentage of saddle time do to the versatility of modes of riding that can be done. And it can behave well in multiple climates.

    I have a very nice tard, It’s on a DRZ400 platform built with too many options that only a madman would do. I didn’t ride it once last year. It’s track ready and street-able.

    I think I’ll post it on this forum for starters.

    Anyways, today would have been a great day to have gotten out only if I was home to do so.

    Anyways, that’s my rant on this topic.
    And as ways get it when you can.

    Re: How many bikes have you owned?

    I think Scottie's list and mine support the whole "opposites attract" thing...

    Since 2000

    1976 Honda CB200T (crashed)
    1981 Honda CM400 (project)
    1989 Honda CB-1 (current)
    1987 Honda Hawk GT650
    1988 Honda Hawk GT650

    Quote Originally Posted by Not Sure View Post

    CB200T: $700
    CM400: $400?
    CB-1: $1500
    Hawk #1: $1500?
    Hawk #2: $2600

    So just sale price would have netted me a whopping $6700 (input). Add in gear, parts, maintenance, and track days, on the other hand...

    Re: How many bikes have you owned?

    In order in which I had them

    Early 70s Z50. First bike and first bike I rode on a real deal MX track at age 7. Sadly it burned in the house fire.
    1973 XR75. Replacement for said burned up 50 after the house was rebuilt. Rode this bike with bald tires and no rear brake for years. Taught me a LOT. Still have it
    1974 Honda MT125. Fist two stroke. Pounded it senseless.
    1979 YZ125 First real MX bike. Bought it in 84 and promptly learned to rebuild 2 strokes at age 14
    1986 YZ 125 First new bike. Dad said I could not race the 79 POS. So I bought a new one. OMG what a fast bike. Raced the piss out of it through the 88 season.
    1988 YZ250 Full Pro Circuit kit. Wow Wow wow. i only weighed 130 pounds.
    1986 Honda TRX250R Yeah I know. It's a quad but... It was fast Owned it until the mid 2000s
    1989 YZ 125. Fun bike but not fast at all.
    1990 YZ250 Solid performer. Raced it a bunch.
    1983 Honda VF750F Intercepter. First street bike. So nice
    1993 YZ250 Best bike I ever raced.
    1993 Honda VFR750. The flying fridge. Oh I wish I never sold this sweet machine. The sound alone gave me a boner. Still does.
    1994 Honda CR250 Back to the dirt. Bought this bike in 1998 and sold it in 2016 Not a bad bike but no YZ
    2005 Suzuki M50 Boulevard WTF was I thinking????
    2008 Yamaha FJR1300 Dream machine. For sale
    2005 Suzuki SV650 AKA Lucy Welcome to track days.
    2005 Suzuki SV650 AKA Daisy Welcome to racing
    2008 Suzuki GSXR 1000 Welcome to going really fast while racing
    2008 KTM 450 EXC-R Bitten by the woods bug For sale
    2018 Husky TE300 I'm in love Welcome to hard enduro
    These are the bikes I consider mine.

    Others in the Family
    Z50
    CRF80
    TTR125
    KLX250
    Ninja 250
    Hawk
    TRX 400EX

    Not as many as some but man did I make some memories on those machines.

    Honestly never thought I would own a Suzi or a Kawi. Managed to get a few or them. Still think Kawi sucks even though we have one.. Lol

    Re: How many bikes have you owned?

    I've had two bikes in the last 11 years:

    '07 650R
    '09 ZX-10R

    I remember telling myself when I bought the 10R that it was probably the last bike i'd ever need. I didn't know I was serious.

    On a side note, I've gone through 8 cars in the same time frame. I might be on the wrong forum.

    Re: How many bikes have you owned?

    Get to work! Your list was impressive. Along with the turn around time!!!! That's what we also want to know... How long each actually lasted! You make me look good in that dept..
    But the bike's you have owned takes the "W" in the win column!
