Pal John's motorcycle collection

My riding buddy John's 43-bike collection rolled out into his driveway at his home in Virginia. All are museum quality, all are tagged and registered and get used in a rotation cycle. Made for a cool photo, just thought I'd share it.

Need more pics and details. Right now it's likely to believe the bikes on the end are KLRs.

First thought that came to my mind as well. However I don't think that John has a problem with this

He was probably forced to buy that place, just have a driveway long enough to park all of them.

Oh man, I can't name them all....but there are a whole lot of rare Ducati's in the mix (Mike Hailwood Replica, a Paul Smart, MH900), Guzzis, BSA's, Triumphs, Ariel Square 4, '47 Indian Chief, Lots of BMWs in including an R69S, Harleys, Hondas, Laverdas....about the only thing missing is a Vincent and a Brough Superior.

He put son this event 1st Sunday of every month in Clifton, VA, and his collection is just 5 minutes away.

My place looks just like that...minus 41 bikes, the gates and the fine trimmed lawns.

That's quite the collection.

Very nice. More pictures would be great. Does he get much time to ride them in between visits to the DMV?
