How many bikes do you own?

Two, C10 & C14. Would love to add a ZX14R to the stable, but in my current physical condition it would cripple me.
Maybe one day. Would also love to have a WingThing and a big Trail bike, maybe a KTM1290 or similar.
All I need is the money and a bigger garage.  :motonoises: :great:

Stared the year with five (Should never have sold the ZRX) but now I'm at four bikes in my name.  The C14 and Z900RS are the ones that I ride and the 500 and 250 Ninjas were bought for my kids but I end up servicing and riding them while they are away at college.  Eventually, the kids will have those bikes put in their names when they graduate, just like I did for their two older siblings.

Let's see... the C10 morphed into a C14 a while back, I have one that you pedal around the neighborhood, and another that you pedal but doesn't go anywhere...  ::)

I am sure i have answered before, but now i have a new answer

the beloved 09 C14 is still underneath me.  and after an extensive once over by the local shop, it is reborn with a valve job, brake job, new fluids top to bottom/front to back, head-oil-leak fixed (no smoke on start up), and new Q3+ tires...this thing has me falling in love all over again

and behind curtain number 2...a wonderfully blue 07 ZX10r that is my new trackbike.  with a full titanium Leo Vince' under seat exhaust system, cloth-tape wrapped headers, Q3+s, double-bubble wind screen, and pushing a nicely sounding 168hp...

after years of running 600s, mid-wght twins, and such at the track, this is my first superbike...albeit a couple generations older

but then again, so am i...a couple generations older... ;)

Was 3, now 4.....

'86 Connie (salvage)
'95 Connie
'02 KLR
'67 Honda CL77 Scrambler as of a few days ago

I'd love to have a Yamaha DT-1 2 smoke, but decent ones are getting rare and they're commanding top bux, at least around here they are.

I'm at 9 bikes. Retired and that's what keep my sanity. 2 Harley's , 1 Conny (1999) and 6 BMW's. Running out of space in my shop! I tell my wife it's tough to get the bike I want to ride out from behind the others and all she says is "poor you"..., Then I shut up!!!. Love the 19999 Concourse, my latest acquisition.

I'm currently at 2, and considering a 3rd. The third bike would be kept in Chicago for use when I come visit family (every 4-6 weeks). My current bikes (GS & K16) deliver on what I need from a bike. The third, if there is to be one, would be a fun bike.

Something in the naked bike category. Ducati Monster, or the Vmax.

Any other suggestions?

Currently 3, all running and in excellent condition:
1978 BMW R80/7 with a full luftmeister fairing and Michelin Pilot Activ tires.
1990 BMW K75 RT with a full fairing Avon Road Rider tires.
2014 C-14 Black( the fastest color) with a Michelin Power pilot on front and RS2 on the rear.
I bought the Connie in June 19 because I wanted ABS Traction control, a modern powerful super sport bike.
Got a Steve flash, RDL saddle, bar backs CeeBailey large windscreen. The Connie is bad A$$!!

No. The heading says 'bikes' - that implies 2 wheels. Maybe you're starting a collection of 'ikes'

2009 1400GTR
2009 Can-Am Spyder

1992 1000GTR

Two, 2008 C14 Truly the fastest color! And a 2018 Gold Wing Tour DCT Pearl White also the fastest non-color! Both fantastic motorcycles! Both very fun to ride.

Never had more than 2 at any given time.
09 ultra classic and C14
then C14 and Honda Valkyrie

As for your fun bike go for a Vmax 1993-2008 most fun you can have with your clothes on...

Four bikes in the garage:
'01 C-10 that needs to be put back together
'04 Honda CBR F4i
'05 FJR ABS - will be sold this spring
"14 FJR ES

I plan on selling the C-10 and 05 FJR. They are taking up room and I rarely ride them. I should sell the CBR - not the best ergo set up for my 68 year old body. Plus, it's a ticket magnet. It's no fun until you get over 6000 rpms. By then, there's usually flashing blue and red lights behind me. Been thinking about an adventure bike. Maybe a Yamaha T7 or the new KLR. That however, may be a bad decision for my body. Between the blood thinners and oral cancer meds, I should not go riding in the dirt. I bruise badly and don't know how or why. A hard crash for me would probably be fatal. Still, I can't get an adventure bike out of my mind. Some guys never learn.

My wife thinks I should get my totals down to one bike, but that's not going to happen. I guess I'm not growing up, just getting older. No one gets out alive, so live hard, go fast and take chances. So far it's worked for me. Besides, who wants to die from cancer. That sounds a waste of good life experiences to me.

Got my second one this winter... Sweet deal on a 2006 Electra-Glide, it's going to sit by my 2012 C14. I am keeping an eye out for a used 650 V-Strom to round up the lot and have something for light dirt use.

The Japanese and American bikes play well together. And yep, they're both farkled to the max.

Up here, in the Great White North, lots of people own the sport and the custom. I am blessed to have a shop that maintain both properly.

With good maintenance, the sky's (and the wallet's) the limit!

With the exception of perhaps an extra bike purely for dirt and/or track days, I am convinced that owning anything more than 1 bike is evidence of an inability to commit to longterm relationships and a failure to make good choices for owning the proper bike in the first place!

(Note that I may revise this position once my son get his bike out my dang garage and there is room for a complement to my current wisely chosen, longterm MC relationship.)

it's a kz750b twin, no kz650b. I never had a 650. It's a missing link in my collection :(.
Your's is a beauty.
Lucky grandpa my daughter is 12 and don't care my Kawasakis. I'm 58 now and hope to finish my Kawis when work ends and freedom begins 😁

I'm sorry Bruno,

I jumped the gun on ya.... I get excited about anything with "KZ and 70s" in it's name. :giggle:

I also have 77KZ650 Custom project bike....... I'm slowly collecting parts to finish it.
If my grandson maintains interest I'll likely make that one his.

Best Regards
Bob

No gun on me, Bob. I like the Kz series too. :)
but think I love the 2strokes even more.
I forgot I had a 650sr I sold last year. Here in Austria no one seems to like this bikes.
I only got 750 Euro. Not running but original paint and exhaust.
Keep the Kz650b its amazing

Best regards
Bruno
