I started riding 13 years ago in 2004 and have owned the following:
1993 Kaw EX500 (ninja)
1992 Yamaha Seca 600 (owned 2 days lol)
1982 Honda Magna
1982 Yamaha XJ750 Seca
1986 Kaw Concours
---Then in 2012 when my ex moved out I went through a crisis....
1997 Suzi Bandit 1200
1999 Suzi Bandit 600
1982 Yamaha Seca 650
1993 Yamaha Seca 600 (yes another one)
2006 Kaw Concours - Still have
2005 Honda Goldwing
2006 Honda Goldwing - Still have

I flipped a few bikes when the ex moved out...3 in like 8 months. One of which was a total rebuild. I also bought that Bandit 1200 which was insane. Never comfortable, no windsheld, just twist the throttle and hold the eff on. Now I have my two touring bikes, that I'm wholly satisfied with. I can go camping an hour away, or ride to california...either way on either bike, I'm good.

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)
04 Yamaha FJR1300A (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.
Picked up another bike on Sunday (Yamaha FJR added above)...figured I'd update my list. Not sure of the long term plan quite yet but I'll probably thin the herd a bit to make room for it. I'm thinking the FJ-09 will go as it gets ridden the least.
