Was never particularly attracted to motorcycles but inherited Dad's old, rarely-used moped. Required me to learn how to wrench on it as the newfangled Internet gave me access to other moped riders. One thing led to another.....

1977 Cimatti Citybike
2003 Tomos A35, kitted to 65cc with performance pipe (imagine 42 MPH with 25 MPH-capable brakes)
1997 Tomos LX Classic, kitted similarly. Constantly leaded transmission fluid, AKA, "Automatic Chain Lubrication System"
2006 TGB Laser R5
2009 Genuine Buddy 125. My "around town" ride.
2009 Genuine Buddy 150 Blackjack. Belonged to, and abandoned by, ex-wife. Still got it.

Since I was rebuilding motorcycles given to me I could not guess how many I've owned. Two years in a roll our DMV told me I'd need a business license to sell any more bikes. I was told 5 was the rule and I had sold 8 that year already.
Bikes I've owned more than 4 months still has to be 25-30.
Started riding on the street in 1970 without a license.
