You can only ride one at a time!
You only really need 3-5 at the most
Never say too many!
"Too many" is when you run out of room. Our one car garage has 5 motorcycles and a mini-bike in it, including a work bench, beer fridge, etc. We have three bikes under the deck, and a mini-bike in the gardening shed. Officially, no more room.

1978 GS750(x2), 1983 GS1100ED (slowly becoming a parts bike), 1982 GS1100EZ, 1983 GS1100ESD
I have 2 currently, the GS and the CB900f. I'd like an enduro or dual-sport, an older Triumph 650, and maybe a Moto Guzzi Cali 1100. Not sure whether I will have all of them concurrently.

At least two more besides my 750. The FJ1300 for my touring and maybe 81 GS1100E with a built engine....oh and a 450 enduro to go riding off road with a couple of my girl friends, they are still bugging me to get one yet lol. Just no extra cash yet sigh.
1980 GS 750E Bought new in Feb of 1980
Been a GSR member on and off since April 2002
Stuff I've done to my bike 1100E front end with new Sonic springs, 1100E swing arm conversion with new Progressive shocks installed, 530 sprockets/chain conversion, new SS brake lines, new brake pads. New SS fasteners through out. Rebuilt carbs, new EBC clutch springs and horn installed. New paint. Motor runs strong.
How many is enough, you ask? One more.
I had a DR650 as my only bike for the longest time. At first i thought it was awesome that that bike could do everything, but after a while I realized that it kind of sucks at everything, too. Now I had a Honda for my dirt needs and a GS for my street needs.
I have two bikes at the moment. In a way it feels right, but having only 1 garage spot for 2 bikes and a car makes me wonder what I'm doing...

How many bikes a person would like is one question. And the answer to that is based on how many different riding styles and riding conditions.... and at how many locations ... and distances in between those locations.
But there there are other questions also:
- How many available spaces to keep a bike?
- How many insurance policys?
- How maybe many loan payments?
- How many batterys to maintain.
And when you exceed one of those, THAT is too many.
