This I can relate to, somewhat. Mine are all offroad expeditions though... I love ATVs and dirtbikes, but sadly there's getting to be fewer areas to ride them. 10-15 years ago I could literally leave my house and ride ALL day and never hit the same trail twice. It was all private land and everyone was ok with it as long as you acted with a bit of common sense and didn't tear anything up. These days though, they all want to close it off and arrest you for trespassing thanks to a few idiots that have no common sense at all... I can't say that I blame the land owners, but it still sucks for the rest of us.

I'll post a few pictures of my "stable" later.

Here's my collection as promised...

These are all current:













I also have this one for the road, but it doesn't get out much... Needs tires and a few other little things. One of these days I'll tear it down for a rebuild using custom fenders and maybe even rake the frame!



These are some of the others I've had in the past...











On another note, the KX250 and XR600R were recently stolen the recovered 6 days later. The KX is in bad shape now, it was under water in a pond when they went to get it. It's all scratched up, seat cut to shreds, one radiator is crushed and leaking, handle bars, top tripple clamp, and sub frame are bent, engine has no compression and is full of water, etc. I doubt it will ever be fixed. Even if I collect restitution, the repair estimate is more than another used bike would cost... The 600 isn't quite as bad. Mostly cosmetic damage on that one and will be fixed either way, restitution paid or not. It's probably my favorite...
