So Many Bikes Since the Concours

My last post was in 2018. There have been five more motorcycles since then. I bought a 2002 DRZ400 in 2018, a 2003 BMW R1150GS in 2018, a 2015 Honda CB500x in 2019, a 2008 Triumph Speed Triple in 2019 and this year, I bought my dream bike, a 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE. Man, that’s a lot of bikes. There’s been a fair amount of riding, too, but no long trips. More to come on all of these.

What’s extra crazy is I still have the 2008 Speed Triple…and it’s paid for. So now I have two Triumphs and a Ural in the garage, making this the best motorcycle fleet I’ve owned. Speedie is amazing. The Ural is now the motorcycle I’ve owned longer than anything else, and then there’s the new one…the Scrambler. I really don’t know how to describe it…but I basically don’t need anything else. It’s amazing.

The first ride in the canyon on the Scrambler 1200 XE…my dream bike.
