Re: At what point --buy motorcycle ?
Tinkering on them is 80% of the fun for me too. I make my builds complicated intentionally so the building process takes a long time. My first bike took 8 months. Now it is done and I ride it here and there but it mostly sits and I start building another one.
I have had my share of motorcycles and they are the opposite for me. Way more fun to ride and less fun to tinker on. I would consider them two totally different hobbies.
