    I'm just bored.

    Hey guys I just read a thread where someone has rode 50 machines in his life..
    How about putting a few #'s up for the rest of us.. I'm thinking roughly about 120 different bikes. Give or take a few..
    I counted 100 10 years ago, So I've slowed down riding strangers bikes lately.. OMM.

    The was me. I've owned and ridden more than 50 motorcycles in my life. Sorry, I don't have many photos. lost 90 % of everything in a fire about 20 years ago.
    I started out with a Harley servicar trike then went to an R-26 BMW and was off and running on a motorcycle life.

    I don't count other peoples bikes I have ridden.

    I have been too busy riding my own to ride other peoples bikes. Besides one of the few times I did ride someone elses bike, the engine siezed as I turned it off.
    I had not been abusing it but felt really bad about it. Probably one of the reasons I seldom did it.

    I typically have 2-3 bikes at any given time. (The stay married limit) It seems that there are a few that I keep long term, while others are projects to restore and pass on. Can't say that there is a bike that I have hated really. Just some "fit" my needs better at the time.
    The long term bikes
    1980-1986 Yamaha CT1a 175 enduro--- highschool into couple years of collage
    1986-1998 Yamaha 650 Maxim-- Stone Hammer simple and reliable
    1997-present BMW R100GS-- simple, but...

    I usually don't hot rod other peoples bikes.. "EXCEPT" once...... A new yamaha RD 350 back in 1969.. I hit the gas, the next thing I saw was gas tank in my face. Since then I "DO NOT" punch any bike that's not mine. OMM.

    Hahaha..... I was allowed to ride a Kawasaki 500 triple one time. I had ridden it about a half block slightly uphill. I opened it up.....bwaaahhh(no power)......then WAHHHHHHH!!!!!!......front tire came up a little...I slid back on the seat....hung on for dear life!!!!! Lesson learned. I haven't ridden that many, but that one was very memorable. Would not want to own one.

    Hm, well, I was a motorcycle mechanic most of my life. So maybe a few thousand test rides on different bikes? Who knows. I've owned 30 plus bikes myself. My memory isn't that great.

    When in doubt, Gas It..!!!
