Why never enough motorcyles?

Postby sparrowhawwk » Mon Dec 09, 2013 2:24 pm

Couldn't stop myself. Just added another 83 to the collection. No time to see how it runs for a couple weeks. Probably paid too much but I wanted a parts bike if it comes to that and the motor etc. is supposed to be good. Bike has braided brake lines and looks to have been maintained well before the crash. :roll: If it works out ok I think I'll convert it to a Standard. I have all the parts I think.

It's a man thing.
My wife and daughters have an insatiable appetite for shoes and handbags, with me it's motor bikes.
Have you got too many motor bikes? Count your wife's handbags.

Sheesh. Just a few years ago I never thought about owning (or riding) a motorcycle. Now I own TWO!!! :shock: An '86 Wing with a voyager kit and a '95 Wing with a California Sidecar Kit. An FYI...I am thinking about selling the '86 if anyone is interested.

Bikes are like boats, ....different boat/bike depending on what you are doing :)

Wow! I am impressed. 83 bikes to add to your collection. You must be outdoing your wife and daughter for handbags :roll: But then.... "this goes with that!" and "that goes with this!" So many opportunities, and so few bikes :lol: :lol: Do you change your clothes so that they do not clash with your motorcycle colour? And then say: "I have nothing to ride (with this outfit)!!!

Well Redial, I think you've been sniffing too many exhaust fumes! But it's funny anyway! Great image, trying to figure which outfit matches which bike! But imagine what plate renewal day would be like!

Nothing a matter with having more than 1 bike that's for sure

"Hi, my name is motorhead1977 and I have MBS - Multiple Bike Syndrome" Currently there are only 3 in the garage. But only because this garage is so much smaller than my last one. One can never have too many bikes, just not enough room for the bikes you'd like to have. :D

I currently have 2 bikes in my garage. My 1990 GL 1500 and a Suzuki VS 800 Intruder. I use the intruder for a daily driver and the Wing on weekends or roadtrips. Whoever dies with the most toys wins. That's what I have always heard.
