I'm right there with the OP .
3 in the garage, and a 4th is my son's awaiting for me to tear into the carburetors...like 2 of mine.
'81 CB750K + '00 ZRX1100 + '99 SV650= 10 carbs to play footsies with by the end of this month. Meanwhile, my Vstrom sits in the garage looking at the other 3 and laughing at them.
When I told my wife I was buying another bike as a retirement present for myself, I got the expected."You already have 2--how many do you need?" spiel.
I asked her how many shoes and purses she needed. No answer.
When bike shopping she she alternated between being disinterested and pissed-off. FJR1300, Versys 1000, Super Tenere, and Africa Twin were all being considered
Until... she saw the stupid-cheap price I negotiated for my leftover/new '14 DL1K.
Then..all of a sudden, she brightened up and was all smiles. It wasnt that I was buying a bike that did that--it was that I was getting a bargain! She was all on-board with that!
Wwe've been together 51 years, married for almost 44. I'm still learning...
