Think about all the engines you own, and figure out the number of cylinders. Add them all together and you get your cylinder IQ...

I own...
1992 VW Golf GTI +4
1969 Mobylette +1
1973 CT 70 +1
2005 DL1000 +2
whipper snipper +1
Lawn Mower +1
Snowblower and an extra engine +2
2010 Malibu +4

So my cylinder IQ is 16...

You & the bride make me look like I have a problem (13 were purchased in the last 2 weeks)

I'm either jealous of your garage space or feel bad for your neighbors ;)

I'm presently at an all time low!
Vstrom - 2
SV - 2
Guzzi - 2
Kawi A1 - 2
Vespa - 1
Sprinter - 6

so I'm at 15

You asked about cylinders, if it was pistons I have a few spares around so maybe 3 more.
My personal peak was 29 I think

Currently operating I have 17 cars and 27 motorcycles.

Some live in Sydney with me the others are at Rolex, it is 220 acres, I'm at a point now every time I get another bike I need build a new shed to house it.

Plenty of kids bikes, farm bikes and trail bikes.

Many of my cars are 4x4's and bush bashers to play in the dirt.

I don't sell anything anymore, I have given many away for free or just move them down to Rolex.

On top of that I have 1 boat trailer, 3 box trailers and 8 of what we call caravans you guys could call them trailer homes or something ???

In the past 2 weeks I have purchased 2 cars and a bike.

Now I have put it in writing I do believe it's becoming a problem.

Actually I would think that the more ICE you own, the LOWER your rating should be. Having said that:

GMC truck 8
Wee-Strom 2
Kawasaki Concours C10 4
2 Lawnmowers 2
Shindawa Brush cutter 1
2 Stihl Chainsaws 2
Generac 3500W Generator 1
TOTAL 20

Man....I'm dumber than I thought.

No outboards? I have a twin cylinder 6 HP (ancient) which strikes me as silly, except it goes back to the days of dirty points, automotive oil in 2-strokes, and fouled sparkplugs. Presumably the hope was that one cyclinder would keep firing and get you home.

16 cylinders in cars (6, 6, and 4)
9 in 2-wheelers (4, 2, 1, 1, 1)
3 chainsaws, 2 weed whips, 2 blowers, 3 snowblowers, 2 mowers with 3 spare engines (15)
twin outboard

So, best guess is 42

Oh, wait, lawn vac and chipper, so 2 more. 44. Maybe explains why I'm obsessive about mothballing equipment at the end of the season.
