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.
