Re: How many riders own more than one bike?
I feel no one bike can do it all, but there are some that come close. I have the following:
1. R1200RT: Touring, grocery shopping, taking the Misses out 2 up.
2. S1000RR: back roads, starbucks, bike night, sport class bike hyper bike
3. Dorsoduro 750: Hooligannisum de jour, upright comfort, city errands, v twin rumble, jump trails.
I feel these bikes give me a wide range of coverage.
I had 6 bikes about 2 years ago (Daytona 675, 955i and RVF 400). The S1000RR covered what the 2 Daytona's could do, the RVF400 was to small ride. I like having 3, seems perfect, wouldn't mind adding a Harley XR1200 to the mix because I think they're neat bikes, but I have a feeling I wouldn't really like it because of the poor handling and weight.
