It is a Sickness.

I am very ill, I have the sickness. Just added New left over 2015 Versys 1000LT to the fleet. Now the garage has a 2017 Versys 300X, and a Versys 1000LT competing for space with my 2014 FJR1300 and 2014 V-Strom 650. I need counseling. Got a super steal deal on the V1000LT. but had to drive 1300 miles to get it.

It's not a sickness...you admitted to it! It's only a sickness when you deny.

The way I see it, you still have a little more room in that garage!

Oh my GOD. is this Heaven they talk about? LOL. lucky guy.

FJR1300 is my dream bike. Definitely something I want to get but just waiting to build up more experience. 2017 650 is my 1st bike and I've had it for only one and half months. Can't wait to add an FJR. Monster of a bike.

As the years go by the FJR is getting a bit heavy. Don't understand why it has gained weight in the last four years. That is why the V1000LT came home.Might have the FJR up for sale next springs. Will see, keep an eye out.

And that is not including all the extra stuff on the FJR. Top Box, Crash Bars, etc. So the real life difference is well over 100 pounds.

Well as I see it you have some nice bikes and not enough people to ride them-you should send a few of us plane tickets-we can help with that problem

It is a sickness to have so many similar bikes. You need more diversity in your stable.

Here are some of my stables over the years.

That's why there is now a 527 lb. V1 now sitting beside my 905 lb. Gold Wing.
