One. Picked it up at a wally world for <$100. Fun mountain bike with actual suspension.

Oh, I got a motorcycle too that doesn't have pedals like a bicycle has.

Dualsport is in the works as soon as things stabilize a bit..and I start riding again. (too much fun work, not enough playing)

2..!  But there is so so SO much room for more  ridn2

2002 Honda Nighthawk CB750 - This is the third of this model that I've owned.  I think I've learned my lesson and will probably never sell this bike.
2009 Ducati Monster 1100 - I am a HUGE Ducati fan, for the noise, for the smell, for the love-hate relationship with the older bikes, but this newer model has been a dream reliability and maintenance-wise.   Doesn't mean I don't miss my old 2001 996 once in awhile but I don't miss thinks falling off (license plate holder, kickstand, random locknuts)

Three but.....

one is broke (2006 XT225 needs the valves lapped and put back together)

one is in pieces (2002 CB750 Nighthawk is now a bike in a box, I'll be cleaning parts up soon to sell. I'll offer a discount to all members of this forum. And yes the sick seat/fuel cell will be up for sale as well. Let me know if you want dibs on that before the masses see pictures.)

one is still at the dealer. (2015 Tiger 800 XCx was purchased this past weekend but some jacka$$ ran over a curb with it and bent the rim. Should get it today or tomorrow.)

The gas station is a very common stop with the way I ride the Valkyrie. lol

I keep waiting for that proverbial $100 steal for a bike that really just needs the carbs clean. Been looking for a while, still haven't found a great deal. Don't really have the need (or the space) for more than one anyway, so I'm content.

Oh, but you will. Wait until fall when everyone wants that garage space. October is the month for deals on non-runners...

Prior to this forum's big crash, there was a member who had somewhere in the vicinity of 46 CB700S's.  Yes, of the same bike.  All six colour schemes, all three years, all variations of Hondaline accessories.

I think i found that guy on facebook at one point.  I wasnt sure if it was a cb700sc store or what at first, but then realized it was just a collection. 

At the moment i have two, which is the most ive ever had (vintage vespa and bike, or crf50 and bike).  My CB700sc (for sale!) and a 2002 VFR800 i just picked up last weekend on the cheap with 113k miles on it.   bugeye1

1997 NH750
mostly used around town. took the windshield off. 




2008 dl650 (wee-strom)
mostly used on longer trips. Fully kitted-out.


Picture taken after 5-6 day trip. I was a little road-weary and rugged at this point.

6 in my garage (CA), 1 at folks place (NC)

1) '85 Honda 700S

2) '98 Yamaha WR400 (my off-road learner bike)

3) 1993 Suzuki DR650 (big kick-start only model before '96 redesign) ( my ride ADV style to Alaska when I'm good on dirt bike)

4) '03 Ninja 250 "Streetfighter" (girlfriend's learn to ride bike, MSF course soon)

5) '06 Ninja 650  "Streetfighter" (for sale)

6) '88 Yamaha XT600 (roller w/ engine and box of parts) turning this into a scrambler.

In my eyes dirt --> street bike is easier and more functional than street --> dirt bike.

Auxiliary bike in NC.

7) '8X Kawasaki Ninja Frankenbike
   ('86 gpz1000r frame, '85 ninja 900 engine)

The most expensive bike was the nighthawk at $1500, the Frankenninja the cheapest at $100

All the others except the suzuki were sub $1K

I moved from NYC to SoCal, I figured people would work on their own stuff here, and the used bike market would be a sellers market. Nope.

 There's always a tremendous amount of easy fix bikes on CL for a song.

Selling them is a difference t story.

YMMV


Edit:  I also have an electric razr knockoff kids scooter i got for free.

A neighbors kids outgrew them and he figured I'm the guy to fix it.

There's a short somewhere. When I'm done fixing it I'll just give it to the neighborhood kids
