Yikes! My Versys is number 13!!

Made up a rather large signature for my posts listing the bikes I have owned over the years. For some reason I've thought I had over 20 bikes but no only 13 and my Versys is number 13!

Is this bad? or good ?

1. 1971 Yamaha 90cc HT-1 Enduro - My first bike!
2. 1972 Yamaha 125cc AT-1 Enduro
3. 1968 200cc Suzuki Twin
4. 1972 Kawasaki 125cc Enduro - My first new Kawasaki!
5. 1967 Triumph 500cc Trophy
6. 1942 Harley WLA 750cc
7. 1979 Yamaha 650cc - The "Versys" of the 70's!
8. 1980 BMW R100RT - Rode that bike for 19 years from Key West to Fairbanks
9. 1948 Harley WLA 750cc
10. 2002 BMW 1150 GS Adventure - Man, was that thing BIG!
11. 1973 BMW R75 /5
12. 1974 Kawasaki 100cc Enduro
13. 2008 Kawasaki Versys

I can relate, I don't know how many I've had. I usually get hit by people that need money, and the only things I'm interested in buying is firearms or bikes at prices I can either trade off or turn around by selling as I have more patience in dealing with people. Sometimes even a vintage radio like Panasonic RF-2200 which I'm listening to right now.

I was doing a count and found that I can remember 22 bikes that have been in my possession, and I know I'm forgetting a few.

13 is a single number 4. (1+3) So I think you're just fine, Versysbob and fasteddiecopeman.

Fours tend to be practical, orderly, patient, logical, earthy and even-tempered. Most fours are very hard-working and loyal; they find their greatest joy in building something that will last.

Versysbob, this got me thinking. I added up the bikes & 4 wheelers that I have had and 13 is the number of my Green 09 versys. 13 has all was be lucky for me so hopefully it will be for you as well. So don't worry it will be fine.

Thinking back, bike number 13 was lucky for me (I'm on number 17 now with the 5 listed in my sig residing in the garage right now).

With the V being bike 13 for you, you don't have anything to worry about; it's a great bike.

My toys:
'09 Versys in Cool Lime ~ '06 Harley Roadking
'95 Suzuki DR350S ~ '94 Suzuki DR350S
'09 Kawi STX15F jet ski ~ '07 Kawi STX12F Jetski
'09 Yamaha Superjet ~ '13 Ram 4X4 3500 Cummins
'09 BMW 535i ~ '10 Kubota B3300SU

Number 13 have an effect if it falls on a Friday and of course that is a myth.

However, if you bough you 13th bike on Friday the 13th at the 13th hour (1:00 PM) and you have to walk under the ladder while coming across a black cat, after breaking a mirror, while opening an umbrella indoors.

It will be more than a coincedence if you had bad luck with it.
