Sure. I've got two Wee's at the moment. I was delirious with joy when I had 5-6 BMW's in the garage.
Mostly depends on how easily you can be satisfied.

My happiness is any motorcycle in the garage.

For me to achieve happiness, I think I need at least one bike that doesn't reliably start every day.

I have 4 in the garage. But for me, the happiness is that it is heated, well-lit, and fully equipped. If I had just one bike in the garage I'd be just as happy.
What would make me ecstatic is if 3 of the 4 had FUEL INJECTION so I wouldnt have to periodically futz with them.
Every day I go out to the garage and pat my Vstrom on the seat.

One Strom is fine for me but the others are very different, and as a group they satisfy all of my motorcycling needs. As such I am very happy 👍👍😁

Its never too late to have a happy childhood

2 motorcycles is a good number. One for all around hard surfaces like the strom and one for the rough stuff. maybe one more that's a little different say a triple or one that is in between the strom and what you have for the rough stuff. 3 motorcycles could work too. Lots of different combos could work.

14 tooth for me

A dirt bike, a combo bike (Vstrom) and a street bike (something stupid fast), add a cruiser or 5, would be perfect, but you can only own what you can afford (what the wife allows), and what your garage will accept.

While I agree a VStrom can bring smile to the face and more V strom is more smile but my experience sez each bike has its own character so:
Happiness is more like this.
