Mark, how do you decide which bike to ride any given day? Sounds like a pretty cool collection.

I think the Virago 535 looks like a Vstar 650 that ran into a brick wall, but the rest of your collection is awesome :^)

If I lived alone and was retired my garage might turn into a motorcycle collection warehouse. It takes a bit of work to keep more than 2 bikes licensed, insured, inspected and on the road - I know a few people who have several bikes and they end up riding maybe 2 at the most.

All the bikes are in Great condition and ready to ride.
I ride the one that is the easiest to get out of the Garage at any given time.

the RoyalStar and RoadStar are the year 2000 Anniversary editions, keepers.

Since the yamahas are so reliable and easy to maintain, just do routine stuff, oil and filters and a new battery every few years.

by necessity i have become very knowledgeable regarding the Carbs, cleaning and and sync etc.
getting to know the fuel injection systems via the roadliner and warrior etc.

had to learn 'the-hard-way' with the Roadliner injector system, but now not so bad to get into.

I used to live a little bit south from Joplin. I remember when the tornado leveled a good part of it. Sad to see all of the damage.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Nice collection and it sounds like you have a wealth of knowledge to contribute. I used to be a long haul trucker and stayed at a truck stop in Joplin about a month before the tornado hit. I couldn't believe the pictures were the same area.
