256 if you count Mazda RX-7 rotary engines as 6 and not counting small engines. So Joe is still on the radio, I quit listening to AM1500 when they booted Jason Lewis. Now Jason's on 100.3 FM ;D

There are old bikers and there are bold bikers but there are very few old, bold bikers.

100-110 not counting loose motors just lying around.... 160 or so if they count too.... way more if 2-strokes count double.


256 if you count rotary engines as 6 ....

I guess 2-strokes do count double.

24 for me.

2 cars, 2 bikes(does it count if they are completely dis-assembled?) a motor going into a go cart soon, and 2 wheedwhacker motors waiting to be mounted on bicycle frames.


If they don't count if they dont run...then i'm at 20.
