    There are quite a few of us that include dirtbikes. I have a KTM Freeride and a TW200 (which actually seems quite popular) in mine...

    So, what would be in yours?

    I assume a HD would not:D

    Ooh, I didn't think of adding an electric. I like having things that ride differently (at one point I had eleven different surfboards, no two alike).

    Uhh, just because the last number is ten doesn't mean you included only ten. Good call on the Katana and the Confederate.

    That's actually what I had in mind with this. If you can have ten and unlimited capital, you have the ability to change them out... as a matter of fact...

    I think I'll kick my CB500X to the curb. It's the poor man's Multistrada, so why own both?

    So I've freed up a spot, because this is a dream garage and I've got the mad skills to go with my bikes:

    CR500 supermoto for the track

    So here's the new list based off of edits from the last post:

    1. Kawasaki W650, Modern classic: I think I gotta go with the Kwacker, despite currently owning a Bonneville because they just nailed the look better. Sorry Bonnie.

    2. CR500 Supermoto track bike.

    3. Vincent Black Shadow, uhhh, is any explanation needed.

    4. Suzi TW200, off road funbike

    5. KTM Freeride, adult off road funbike

    6. Ducati Multistrada, two words... Pikes Peak

    7. Big Bear Choppers Titanium, how the FXR would be built today if EB was still with the company and the bean counters left him alone. I'll take both fairings and removable bags please and thank you.

    8. Beemer R60 with Steib Sidecar, to get my side hack side on (I've owned two)

    9. Gasbox BMW R80, but make mine a jockey shift please :wink: http://www.pipeburn.com/home/<wbr>2014/06/25/83-bmw-r80-the-gas-<wbr>box.html

    10. Vespa GTS300, probably overkill, but I do want a classic scoot

    No worries :D

    I limited it to 10 because otherwise it could get out of control. I also like the mental challenge of figuring out what would be out and what would be in.

    I posted a "you can only own one bike for the rest of your life" thread over on Road Warriors once. It was more of a mental exercise about what is most important to you in a bike. But about a quarter of the responses that I got were "No way, couldn't do it." I understand the desire to own a bunch. I will never do it myself, not just because of finances but b/c so many of them would sit too much and I can't justify spending that much money on vehicles in light of my values (and profession, I don't think my congregants and Bishop would be happy with 10 bikes in my garage when there are people who need basic amenities.)

    Out of curiosity, have you ridden a Confederate?
