One is never enough...That is all.

 

No, not all, 'till I've had my say. :D

True, one is not enough, but three is too many, so two is the perfect number. :prof:

That means I win and you lose, but I'm happy to share that wisdom. :thumbsup:

Agree with all of you.

What we have is not a sickness....don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Because if they try to, it is they who are sick.

Saw that, thus my comment.

Three has been too many for me.

I'm not that familiar with Euro street bikes but it appears you have two similar?

Anyway I make do with a '14 690R for off road/exploring BDR type stuff and a '03 Z1000 for Arizona slab as well as cross country.

:cheers:

The Aprilia and the Ducati are different bikes in every way. The Duc is my art piece. Gets ridden on special occasions and only when it's perfect weather. The Aprilia is my go to street bike. Love my Beta 4T but now I want a 2T to go along with with it

I had a '06 WR450 and have often considered adding a 250-300 2-smoke, but the single tract around here I can navigate on the 690 with a bit of effort and it's just circles anyway. 100 yards from my shop is the Coconino and from there I can travel much of Arizona, Utah, and beyond just kissing slab. Well, except that part over the canyon.

The Z I bought new in '06 and has been in about every state west of a line roughly from Michigan to Louisiana and does the Devils Highway at least once every year. 

For me, that is perfection, what else could a poor old geezer want? 

:cheers:

Everyone finds their balance.

Motorcycles are tools. If one did it all maybe I would only have one...nah that's no fun. Collect them all!

Simple math formulas...

The number of bikes you should own =

N + 1
(where N is the current number of bikes you own)

Subject to:

S - 1
(where S is the number of bikes, if owned, would cause you to lose your significant other)

I agree with 3 Dog Night:

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number wu-uuuunnn.

what really sucks is when you do all kinds of riding you end up with a bike for every disaplen. I have a dirtbike, kart track bike, sport bike, flat tracker, and now I want a dual sport. Wish I just liked mx.

Exactly it's why I have 4 bicycles...TT, Road Race, Crit and MTB.....If I had the space and could convince my kids to quit college and be barista's for the rest of their lives I'd take all that college money I'm forking out and I'd have at least 10 M/C's.  I'd love a 300 2T, a trials bike an Adventure bike, and don't get me started on street only.  I've been pretty good about keeping my addiction in check. I've had at most 3 street bikes at any given time.  My Ducati 996 is a special bike. It's IMHO the most beautiful sport bike ever made and this one is special. If I could it would be in the house on display :)

I'm up to 18 now. Three are my main goto bikes. The rest are older bikes ,mostly from the 80s to just fiddle on and play with.
