    I just wanted to know who is the craziest biker on this forum. I've got one functioning and one in the works, so I guess I only have one bike. It's funny, all my friends think I'm crazy just for having one! :)

    One of the neat things about these is how little room they take up. You can have a fleet in the amount of space a car takes up. Not that I would suggest it. I have 3. But one is for field use only.

    i've got 2. one i ride all the time, and the new one i'm selling.

    got a spare motor and a ton of bike parts, plus 4 other bikes without motors, and they ain't gonna get motors, either.

    and a few boxes of odds and ends i pick up, like antique glass lenses, air filters, gas caps, weird things that might go on a bike someday.

    i'd be building another right now, but i gotta move soon, so it's on hold till i get settled.

    once i'm in my new place, gimme a few months, i'll probably have 10.

    Say this a lot but is the exact truth at the moment. Have one I am ridding. One I am building and one in planing. (and a 2 smoker BGF with broken mounts I should work on)

    Gonna send this link to Neat Times. I bet he has us all beat together! lol

    I have eight finished bikes. Five of them will be for sale as soon as the weather warms and all the snow has melted. I figure that will be around the first of April when I get back from Arizona.
    I have to keep at least three. One for me, one for the wife, and a spare if someone stops by and wants to go for a ride.

    Howdy Amealnet. I would hazard to guess just past expiring or shortly before, lol

    Have a friend in Holland who laughs at me when I send her pics of my builds. She always tells me "only old people ride those" Last year had a guy flag me down in an angry manner who asked me "aren't you a lil old to be ridding that?" I am 44 or 45. Have to ask the baby's Momma.

    I really enjoy talking to older folks about MBs. They really appreciate and enjoy seeing them. Will tell you storys about the MB they had way back when.

    Might just be me but in answer to your question, I say never!

    " and a spare if someone stops by and wants to go for a ride."

    I Have Five Bikes. Love Them All. Number Five Has A 4 Stroke It Runs So Smooth. There Was A Thread About If You Have More Than One Bike How Do You Pick With One To Ride ? I've Had Three Buddy's Who Don't Have There Own Mb And We Take My Mb's And Go For A Ride, And After A Hour We All Switch Bikes, So We All Can Feel The Differences Between Frames, Motors, It's Fun Being Out Riding With 4 Mb's That I Built. This Year Five. This Is So Much Fun !.wee.drn2usflgbrnot

    Never to old to ride a Bicycle, especially as Motorized Bicycle!

    Maybe we should have a poll to see what the average age of the members is? Myself, I am 60.
