I have two now, but if I were in a slightly better financial position would have three. And if I had a larger garage (and bank account) I'm sure I would have six or more.

I've had as many as five in the past and it wasn't too many years ago that my garage looked like this:



Oh, and spelling word for the day: "you're".

Ha! My brother-in-law had more than thirty motorcycles shortly before they sent him to prison for stealing $58 Million. Actually, what he did was loan shark that amount, but the DA wanted to hit him hard. Of the $3 Million in cash he had on his dining room table when they arrested him, less than $500,000 made it to the police station. Curious, no?

This is the same brother-in-law who was at one time a member of Murder Incorporated.

Otherwise, a very nice guy.

Of course. Motorcycle collectors are always nice guys, even when they are wiseguys.

LOL. Outside of the fact that he was a loan shark and a member Of Murder Inc., there was nothing wrong!

I currently have one bike. It is a perfect bike for me and have often thought that I would never sell it. Then it occurred to me that one thing that might be better than a single bike, would be two bikes. Maybe someday.

I have the 73 Honda, the Kycmo 150. And I have a 78 Puch moped. Does that count as three? Two and 1/2?

I'll give you 2.5 if you'll let me count my Specialized Hard Rock mountain bike as a half and the unicycle in my garage a 1/4.

I don't have any of those bikes anymore. I occasionally let other people ride my ST2 when I'm riding my 888.

Unfortunately, that car bounced off of a tree and was totalled in September of 2004. Now I have this:

Well, if no one else want this one, I guess I will have to put my dibs on it. Scott please have this shipped to Cochabamba Bolivia ASAP!

Excuse me? I could too, and while I'm at it, I'd take your new bike :P

Well anyways I thought that car was his current Mustang...which I've CLEARLY laid dibs on here: http://www.msgroup.org/forums/mtt/t...&whichpage=2

I see you think you have claimed it...however I am sure Scott would not let that go to you...he knows that your ninjette would be properly jealous. Therefore I am sure he will let his mustang run free in the mountains of Bolivia.

Keep in mind that the Mustang is a California car and might not meet the emission requirements for Bolivia. Reducing emissions is very important at high altitudes.

My love knows no limits and I have plenty to give to both the Ninjette and the Mustang if Scott decides to part with it

Lorenasa, I hear that American muscle cars are great in a straight line, but not as good in corners... Do you think it would be the perfect car for the Bolivian mountain roads? I think that Mustang would be better off in the hands of an experienced felony speeder like me, tackling the American interstates

Degaboh, I see your Ninjette no longer satisfies you? You really want my 800-pound hunk of metal now? And since you couldn't tell the difference between a Honda S2000 and a Ford Mustang, I'd be wary of giving you either of them
