That is great, MS can be a debilitating disease and glad that it doesn't stop you from riding...

I love my bikes so much, I doubt I'd sell either. but I do want a third. naked bike, like the streetfighter 1100s or speed triple 1050.

I'm not a big person (5'5") so riding a zx14 or 'busa isn't attractive...

The short answer: I go with my gut, ride the one that "calls" me at that moment.

The longer answer:
I have an FJR, a ZX 14, and the CBR 1000. I have three battery tenders and ride all three year round.

The FJR for overnight trips, and I do this four or five times a year. That's not the only time I use it, but mostly.

The ZX 14 and the CBR is a toss up and I'll ride them equally. Except if I am trailering a bike somewhere, I'll take the CBR because it is lighter and easier to load and unload.

I have not done track days, but if I do, I'll take the CBR of course.

I have 6 right now, 2 street(04 600rr, 04 636), 2 dirt(yz450, yz250), and 2 minis(xr50, thumpstar)

You've got to have backups.

On a serious note, i ride enough to not worry about storage, ill just take whatever i can find the keys to first.

I second that... I want a 600RR track bike real bad, but I also want one of those for the street haha. The girlfriend wants a bike to ride as well so realistically it'd have to be something I'd let her ride haha.
