    i'd be dead by now...shot in the head and left where i fell...people that ask me which motorcycle i liked best have never owned one, or two (or three) to be more precise...i told my friend way back when that my 2001 vfr800 was the ultimate motorcycle and that i had no intention of ever spending another dime on a replacement, that was 8 bikes ago and i'm still looking...not for something better, it's just the nature of the beast...i thought of my '04 cbr1000rr the same way, sold it after 5 years and bought an '06 zx10r the next day...and an '11 zx10r a season later...like women, i remember each bike for what it was and have only fond memories of those in my wake...i'm trying to come up with a maxim on bike ownership that i can live by and they all fall short...not since the days of my youth and girls in the church choir has my attention span been so fleeting...i'll be driving home from the gym and like a bolt of lightning it will come to me, just buy a one or two year old liter bike and have three and be done with it, ah, if it were that simple...someone help me with this one that truly knows, is three enough or is there a sport touring jones yet to attack my being and psyche...zing of wonder...

    I have three bikes. My Friends call me “The Collector”. On my third wife too. Even though My Cross Country is balls out fun to ride…..the third wife is still better…..even after 26 years. Yeah…I like vintage things…..

    Gee, that sounds familiar. Have you ridden an 1125r yet? @skipbarberman is thinking about letting his go.

    The right number of motorcycles a guy should own is
    ....... at least one more than you currently have!
