Another paradox there. You can never have enough bikes, but at the same time it is easy to have too many... to keep insured, tagged, with good rubber, batteries and gas and ready to go. Unless you are Jay Leno, then you have no problem.  :027: :1:

I'm no Leno and Sitll, 4 bikes in the garage and a classic car. Yes it's a budget, but not more than a cigar smoker or a wine lover or a gambler. Gas, can't ride them all at the same time, no bugger there, insurance, yes but you get rebate with a fleet  :008:
THe great thing, you can change style every week, the sad thing, smoe times one of them stay unuse for too long and that's not good.

I sold some and then added others Floyd, (there have been more) until health issues kinda forced me to sell them .... which was a VERY difficult time for me   :003:

Floydsz1  nice collection as well ..question as some models are different in the UK from the Canadian market
the very clean ZXR Kawasaki you show.. year and cc  ?    and that GSXR is it the 1100 or a 750?  looks like a
1986 ..it that an old Z1 on the end ? (:
In Canada we do get ..some.. models in all brands that they sell in Europe. There are some that probably would sell here but never come up available ..
Thanks
Keener

Rebuilt this a couple of years ago. I've had a few since the late 70,s




The zxr is indeed a RR M2 1994, race homologation model.
I believe there is less the a dozen left out of the 33 that originally came to the UK. Most went to the race teams, this one  has never been near a track, I know the full history of it and it's only done 8,500 miles.
The gsxr is 750H 1987. It now is along side my zrx in my living room.



Zrx1200 2003.
I've slightly modified it. Zx- 10R upsidedown forks , Full akro exhaust with dynajet carb kit, I got Andy to set it up on his Dyno, same guy who did my versys. Loads of grunt, and very easy to ride.
