I got this before the monster, love both of them and they are actually different enough to be nice complements. Initially it was a decision between them and I found a lightly used 9T for a good price first but then later on I found a monster w/ termi's lightly used for a great price so now I have both.

He's in the US so he's probably paying less than you are for 1 bike in Ontario!

Isn't that the truth. That was just my twisted sense on humor.

It's about a total of $3,600 a year for house insurance, car and truck-1 full coverage, and 8 motorcycles-4 of them full coverage. I think I pay about $300 a year too much for the house.

I buy a new bike every few years but I can never seem to find time to sell any of them. I like them all.

I'm just speechless and embarrassed to tell you how expensive it would be to insure your lot here in Ontario.

Currently I have a 2006 CBR 1000RR, M1100 evo, and a '15 CB500X for touring.

I try to keep my stable down to 3. Having more makes me feel like I'm wasting the bike and the money I pay to insure it. If I could, I'd only own 1 fun, reliable, beautiful bike, but I found that 1 bike can only meet 2 of my 3 requirements, so I have to own 3 bikes to meet all combinations: reliable, practical (passenger friendly, panniers, cost efficient, and comfortable), and sexy. My CBR is sexy and reliable but not practical; my Monster is sexy and more practical than the CBR but unreliable; my X is practical and reliable but NOT SEXY.

@1UglyBastard
I agree!
As for your X being practical and reliable: I see a joke in that comment but will not elaborate.
