I do try to both bikes once every week. just depends on the weather and how tired I am.

I day dream about what would be my next bike, but I barely have time to ride two...

Just curious what you gents do.
I set mine up on rotation and get in two rides per bike each week from spring to late fall here in Texas. During the winter months December through February, if we have a warm winter, I usually ride each bike at least once a week. With a cold winter like a couple years ago it was a challenge but I could usually get each bike out at least every ten days on a decent day and put some miles on it to stir up the oil.

I have let my bikes sit for up to one month during the winter while overseas with no ill effects, the batteries stayed up and started the bike right away.

Not complaining at all but having five bikes in the garage has it's drawbacks. One of them is always due for registration, state inspection , oil change, tire change or other needed maintenance. Everything seems to hit in clusters where you're wrenching more than riding. I enjoy spining the spanners too but would rather be off on a nice ride if the sun is shining.

I would say two, maybe three bikes is really more than enough. Anymore than that is overkill and the insurance premiums are a pretty good hit each month too.

Man, you speak the truth! I have 5 bikes. Tags for the bikes alone are over $200/year. I only insure my BMW S1000RR now. Had 'em all insured, but at about $30/mo each (that's relatively cheap since I'm so damn old!), I was having to graze on the lawn to afford to eat!....Have to insure 3 trailers and 3 cars/trucks too. Tags are a big enough hit by themselves.
