    You've ever left your house to do anything other than get a motorcycle, and come home with a motorcycle.

    Your turn.

    Done that.

    Decided to get rid of a bike. Loaded up a couple days clothes and what not, and my title. Told Mrs “Going to get a bike, call ya in a few days”

    Came home 6 hours later with a new bike.

    it takes you longer to "gear up" and "gear down" than the actual time of your commute!

    Relegate your nice convertible to living under a cover outside so you can fill the garage with motorcycles AND get a 10x20 storage unit to hold even more motorcycles.

    Your most prized possession is a KLX that both of your children learned to ride motorcycles on!

    Your bikes get ridden daily and your truck sits on a tender.

    I was at the parts counter getting some oil for a late-in-the-year oil change (I dare not say what type of oil :hide) and the guy at the counter was asking if I needed any fuel stabilizer for winter storage. One of the sales guys that knew me overheard and chuckled, saying something to the effect of "You might sell him that for his car".
