    One or two nice bikes in there.
    I never had a dirt bike.

    First was a BMW R27.
    Over the years, a bunch of R69S's and an occasional R60/2.
    3 1952 R67/2's (one with factory Spezial)
    Honda 450
    3 CB400F's
    2 GB500's
    One SR500
    One Yamaha RD60
    One Harley
    3 Indian Chiefs
    One CX500 I just got to resell but actually kinda liked after all.
    One BMW R65LS I put about 80K on.

    Current bikes;
    R100/2 conversion w Seib S500
    W650
    Royal Enfield AVL semi cafe (but not racer [)])

    I made up a list of all the bikes and cars I have owned over my life a few years ago. I won't bore anyone with the whole list but there were over 50 bikes and 30 cars. The most bikes of one make were small Hondas and the brand of car I have had the most of was either VW's or Chysler mini vans, lots of Sprites too.

    Ones I should not have let go--BMW 250 single that I bought for $10, 1959 or so Yamaha 250, Ducati 80cc. In cars, 1959 Morris Minor convertible I bought with 7,000 miles on it-traded it for an MGTD which was the worse car I ever owned, and my 1964 Mustang.

    I have no idea how many bikes I've had in last 42 yrs?
    Started with Honda S65 as first street bike but I had several before that.
    These are the ones I can remember

    Honda PC50,
    Suzuki M12 'Sportsman'
    Multiple Honda C100,C110, C50, C70 (you could buy them for less than five quid in early 70's, although ten bob was a lot of money )
    Honda CB72
    BSA C10L,
    BSA Bantam's (125,150,175)
    Velocette 350 MAC
    BSA C15,
    Honda CB72
    Jawa 90
    Ariel 350 NH
    Honda S90 (four or five, I forget)
    1967 Honda CD175
    BSA A10 (x2, early 50's plunger frames, still have them)
    Moto Guzzi V50 (x3 )
    Royal Enfield 250's
    Super 5,
    Continental GT,
    Continental,
    Crusader,
    Crusader Sport

    Honda CJ250 (don't have a clue how many, 15~20?)
    Panther 120 (my brother owns it now)
    Honda CB 550 F1 (x3, still have 1)
    Suzuki SP370
    Honda CB550K3
    Suzuki SP400
    Honda CB550 F2 (I like 550's, still have it somewhere )

    Yamaha DT400 MX
    Yamaha DT250 MX
    Honda XL185 (x2)
    Honda XR350
    Maico 360? (pre radial fin, sold it to a bike cop, he broke his leg first time out, thought it would be slower than 800cc BMW police bike)
    Maico 400 (twin shock x2)
    Maico 490 (x3,twin shock and Alpha 1)
    Suzuki GT500
    Suzuki GS750?(so my brother tells me, I don't remember it at all[B)])
    Yamaha XS650 (x5)
    Honda CB360 (x4)
    Suzuki Katana
    Yamaha YZ250 (vintage MX, 1982)
    I know there are more, just can't think of them at present
    Haven't had so many cars, didn't start with them until I was 28.
    Looking at list I realise why I'm broke, almost all were wrecks I re-built [8D]
    I dabble in rocket science, when I\'m not picking my nose
    The other night I gave my girlfriend an orgasm, but, she spat it back at me
