For those of you with multiple bikes...

How do you decide which one to ride?

I currently have two, a zx6r and 1krr. I'm curious to know how long you let a bike sit, if it's in good working order. I live in CA, so we can ride all year. I've let my zx6r sit for 6 weeks, but that's only when I first bought my 1krr.

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.

When I had 2 bikes, 600rr and current, would use 600 for work and new bike on weekends. Now new baby gets all my attention.

That would be a good problem to have lol. I have three bikes and currently i've let a family member use my daytona 955i, so sitting in my garage are the cruiser and the cbr...and now since the cbr is out of commission ill be riding the cruiser. But i usually switched off every week...wish i could clone myself and enjoy them simultaneously

I wish I could afford 2 bikes for myself but instead ill keep my dirt bike for off road fun and then get my 1KRR for road. I think I may just buy a new dirt bike when I buy my '13 blade. Bout time for a 450R lol

Well for me it's simple, I ride my RC51 on the street and 1000RR on the track. However I rode more track this season than street. So I've only put like 300 miles on my RC51. I want to sell it cause I don't use it often, but I still don't want to sell it... You know what I mean?

Before deployment I cycled through 2 bikes. I daily rode my ninja 250. Then the CBR was my weekend warrior. Now that I got 3 I might do one CBR on Saturday and the other on Sunday haha.

Nice combination, I wish I would have held on to my RC. I have two 08 CBR 1ks one for the track, one as my street/backup race bike.
