Re: How many bikes do you own?

Two running and registered:
1990 EX500 - Daily rider with 95,000 miles and counting!
1988 Honda XR600 - Recent acquisition that is plated for street, though only to be able to legally ride to the trails.

Parts bikes:
1987 EX500 - paperwork problems forced quick retirement
1989 EX500 - frame with extras
1995 EX500 - complete no paperwork
2004 Honda CFR450 - Picked up for a steal to swap the front end over to the XR600.

Bikes of the past:
1991 EX500 - Bought as a derelict from another member and completely rebuilt for my brother, currently registered and being ridden by him.
1988 Yamaha FZR400 - The result of wishful thinking, sold after a few months of sitting around collecting dust.

1990 EX500 - 145,000 miles as of November 25th, 2019
1993 Ducati 900SS - The real canyon carver

Interesting looking at the results that after your fifth bike you just accept you have a problem and keep getting more with no shame &#x1f602;
