How many bikes have you had?

How many bikes have you had? For me it depends on when you start counting. I had 2 YZinger50, 2 YZinger80, KX80 and a RM80 before the age of 10. The first bike I bought was a 1974 TM100 that I traded a RC car for when I was 14. Then there was 88 yz250, 92 KX125, 71 RD350, 74 CB450, 93 GSXR750, 95 ZX6R, 99 R6, 01 CR250, 99 R6, 01 R6, 94 F2, 01 YZ250, 02 RS125. I think?!?! So, thats like 20ish.

Bought 7 last year alone + the 3 I had = 10 in the last 2 yrs. Sold 4 of them and have 6 left + 1 I bought last Saturday........although THAT will change in a matter of hours.....and I'll have another one.

And I won't count the ATV's or previous bikes.
