Now 62 and started riding when I was 15.

1970 Suzuki TC90
1975 Honda CB250
1987 Honda VT700 Shadow
1988 BMW K100RT
1995 BMW K75RT
1996 Honda GL1500 Aspencade
1995 BMW K1100RT
1991 Honda GL1500 SE
1990 BMW R100RT
2008 Suzuki DR650
2000 BMW R1100RT
2014 Suzuki DL650A Adventure
2001 Honda GL1800

So counting the two I presently own:
5 BMW’s
5 Honda’s
3 Suzuki’s

The order is only partly sequential as several of them were owned concurrently.

I'm not planning to hang it up anytime soon, but I'm pretty sure the current DL650 and GL1800 will be my last bikes.

Hmm.....might not have the years right exactly right on all of them but it's close and within the right generation of the model.

Street bikes
87 Yamaha QT50 (me and @GLFlyer had one at 15 when nobody else had wheels....35 mph top speed and we owned the town....we went EVERYWHERE :) )
74 Suzuki GT750 (Water Buffalo....got if for mowing a guys lawn all summer.... my first motorcycle capable of freeway speeds
89 Yamaha YX600 Radian
78 Honda CB400 Hawk
....10 year gap...no street bikes :(
89 Yamaha YX600 Radian (found it for $600 in Ohio or Indiana or something.... @GLFlyer flew up there as a jump seat pilot and rode it home to me....1000 miles non-stop through rain and cold with a helmet that was too large and no rain gear...I offered to rent him a truck but he said he wanted an "adventure" and put 1000 miles on it in 24 hours.... took me 8 months of owning it to put 1000 miles on it at home. )
97 BMW R1100RT (first touring bike)
02 BMW K1200LT
01 Honda GL1800 Goldwing
13 Honda GL1800 Goldwing (still have)
06 Suzuki SV650
05 Yamaha R1
04 Suzuki GSXR750 (still have)
07 Suzuki GSXR600 (still have)
08 BMW F650GS
15 Yamaha FZ-09 (still have)
15 Honda Grom (still have)
08 Suzuki GSXR1000
12 Kawasaki Ninja 250 (part owner...was a team endurance race bike)
16 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT (still have)

Dirt bikes
98 Yamaha YZ125
01 Yamaha YZ426F
07 KTM 450 XC-W

Guess I had a half dozen kids dirt bikes for the boys when they were younger too but not counting them since I didn't ride them.

I like bikes. I buy a lot of them used....lets you experience a few more of them without paying the new price tag.

I will likely win the short list contest.

Started riding in 2008, age 55. Three bikes:

2007? Suzuki GS500F, 15000 miles

2010 Honda NT700V, 72000 miles

2009 Honda GL1800, 11000 miles so far

I've had the Holding a little over a year now.
