I have seen guys with as many as 14 bikes.I had a Suzuki Madura 1200 once and a parts bike.You have to have a parts bike because buying used parts one at a time costs too much.That makes sense.The guy bought mine and the parts bike and he pulled a trailer over 300 miles to get them.I said did he have any questions about them.He said no, this made 11 of them he now owns.So that guy is a collector. What I am talking about is owning more than one for different kinds of riding.I have a c50 t I want to get rid of.Nothing is wrong with it.But I also have a 1500 intruder I love so don't need 2 similar bikes.I bought my 92 interstate not long ago.It is too heavy and a little too tall.Touring bikes are all heavy.I think I could buy mick o pegs and cut the seat down an inch but does it not seem dumb to own a bike that is seldom ridden.Nothing beats a Goldwing on the open road.And if the trunk and saddlebags are full its going to be as heavy as a car.But cruising along at 75 and the bike feels like its going 45 is the way to go for long trips.I read the signatures here.How can a person utilize a 78, 2 82s, a 1500, honda shadow, etc for example? I really just want one bike that does it all. I have ridden since 1972. I still haven't found that bike.Do you guys feel guilty owning a bike that gets ridden only for special occasions?
