I still try to justify how many bikes I have (3 GS's of various vintage, one with a sidecar, a DRZ, and very soon a DR650 - and that doesn't even include the Dude's bikes!) and can't seem to come up with a good reason to keep them all.

Oh well, they're still staying!!

I picked up a 99 Dr350 to keep the 690 company. I think they are going to be friends.

I don't fully understand the question.

I hope I never have to cut back to two thumpers.

If I couldn't ride, I'd like to have two (of my ex race bikes) on display.

Currently:

Honda Z50 Minitrail '73 (Mini thumper, street rego, 105cc. Lusted after as a young child)
YZ250F (Midi thumper - great bike)
525SX - (Full Motard, conversion)
450EXC - Trails. Had the most fun in ages recently, riding with childhood friends on super challenging tracks. My first ride with them for over 15 years!
525EXC (long story, can be road registered here, basically a spare...)
690 Enduro (The most "Thump" I've ever owned - feel like I'm a kid again on my TT600...)

Most of these bikes are basically worthless to sell (Who wants an '04 SM, even with slipper clutch, CR gear box, fancy brakes, 2 sets of wheels and a pile of alternate sprockets?) And priceless to me (I've made it on TV, racing in a world famous {in New Zealand} street race on it).


I need a 690SMC, and probably a Husaberg 570......

Sky "big shed" Pig.

2x2 I don't have to justify them to anyone but myself... if I had a larger garage, I'd have a few more.

KLR Barbie bike with lots of scars...and a triumph TR650 Strada...

Waiting to see the little duke IF it shows up here...I probably a buyer..the 390..the 690 is too close to the TR IMHO. Although I'd like it too I'm certain.

99 KLR and 08 TE610.

KLR will go everywhere the Husky will, at 1/2 the speed though, and I don't think I'll ever ride 700 highway miles on the Husky in one go...
