    How many is too many?

    Iím a little embarrassed to admit that I picked up another TW yesterday. I broke the news to my significant other. It is clear to the both of us I have a motorcycle hoarding problem.
    I picked up a 94 all stock TW With 5700 on the odometer.
    The price tag did not include any commas.
    After a couple kicks it started up, and after a few hours of troubleshooting I got the lights signals etc. to work. Itís a little noisy I adjusted the valves itís a little better. Tires are good. Should be able to pass Massachusetts strict inspection protocol.
    I donít exactly have a plan for the bike. Although I have been pressured to apply for the TV show hoarders.

    I'm not sure how to answer this question. How many do you have now in total? Sounds like an amazing deal.

    The formula is # of motorcycles you own + 1

    The number I have is 2, TW and a Radian +1=3. My brothers TTR225 is currently in my back yard. I don't know if that one counts.

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    So you have MBS (Multiple Bike Syndrome)? Do not worry, many of us have this same affliction and it's nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed of.

    You may be able to get by with some parts bikes to save some money. Then if you accidentally get them running you have a couple more.

    a woman who acts as gestapo at one of my storage units told me I had an inordinate number of motorcycles for one person until I asked her how many pairs of shoes she owned and then she promptly shut her mouth

    There is no such number that would equal too many motorcycles.

    Infathomable.
