To those of you with more than 1 bike.....

Hi all,

I have a 2007 312r and i love it. I have the option at the moment of buying a second bike to keep her company.

Its a 1998 Aprilia RSV, great condition, probably test riding at weekend. Good price and have the money etc.

So my question is.......

Is having 2 bikes as good as it sounds or do you find yourself using 1 more than the other and feeling bad that the other is not being used as much? I like the idea of having a twin as well as my f4 as i have had several ducatis in the past and enjoy twins as much just worried that it may be a bit extravagant having 2.

Your thoughts and comments welcome!

Cheers, Al.

Hi Alan, in my experience even you can enjoy 3, I have an F4 750, a Ducati MH 900e and a BMW R1200s
and I really enjoyed all 3 very much , I can go out every week at least 2 days.

I have a few also and yes you can enjoy each bike. I ride with different people with different bikes. So it makes it easy for me. Not as much fun riding the MV when your with Harleys. So the Victory makes that easy plus all the Harley guys wish they had bought the Victory after seeing it on the road.

For me two is perfect. One's a Duc 1098 and the other is a shitbox I built. For Sunday afternoon putt putt I ride the shitbox as it's way more comfortable. The Duc I ride when I need a shot of adrenaline and need to remind myself what an old lousy rider I am. I also enjoy fiddling with both. Keeps me busy.

mine have all tended to be various styles, not all sportbikes, for example.... so that helps work my way around them, different bikes for different types of rides.

suspect you'll have a favorite at some point.... but that would be a cool bike to have, so if it's a good deal, give it a go!
