That's a pretty decent quantity to not have a single I4 in there. I bet that's pretty unusual, especially given how some of the others you have are pretty rare out there comparatively speaking.4 V-Twins, 3 Triples, 2 V-4s. 2 Flat 6's, 2 Thumpers, 1 Parallel Twin
Wow! Impressive.I am not going to "challenge" you, but I own/have owned a few of the Red S's.
Currently in the garage are Miss Busa (02 Hayabusa) two DR650's, one Blue and one Yellow, a DR125L, and a water Suzuki, a DT15C (outboard motor) and 4 wheel Suzuki's include two XL7 and a Grand Vitara. My son has an Equator pickup, my daughter has an XL7 and my other son has a Grand Vitara.
My garage has three garage door size Suzuki MC posters on in it. My kids have been described as those Suzuki Kids. People have asked if when I get cut if little red S's come out instead of blood.
I had a DL1000 V Strom, a Suzuki Reno, 5 Grand Vitaras, a Suzuki Sidekick, an Esteem and a Swift and two Suzuki Outboard Motors, a DT150 and a DT200. My two son's first bike was a GS500.
I have worked for a Honda dealer, raced both Yamaha's and Kawasaki's, owned a Benelli, a Honda, a Kawasaki, a BMW, a couple Yamahas, a Bridgestone, and own now a 250 Ninja, and a 70 Lifan.
Does the above make me eligible for acceptance in the Mr. Suzuki run off?
Well, I haven't been completely faithful to Kawasaki Heavy Industries over the years. There were some Suzukis, a Yamaha, a Honda, and a catalog minibike along the way. That said, I've owned nothing but Kawasakis since 1999.Something tells me Tim K. will win this with Kawasaki loyalty. He seems to like them old or new. Not a bad thing really.
That's one way to look at it, but it's like pulling for 32 NFL teams each week. I'm a loyal Texans fan!Brand loyalty is like having a whole box of various types of chocolates and only eating one. 'em all.

My comprehensive list of past and presently owned Kawasakis by year:
1973 S1A Mach I
1978 KZ1000 Limited
1984 454 Limited
That's nine, which ties me with Stephen. So far, I guess that makes us the co-rulers of Kawasakidom.

Did I say that out loud? Never mind!That's one way to look at it, but it's like pulling for 32 NFL teams each week. I'm a loyal Texans fan!

Oh, and the list of things were just examples, you know, things that may pertain to each of us or not.
I don't root for brands much, just the individual racers. After all, no way I'm going to continue rooting for a brand when they sign some jerk (Fabrizio) to ride their bikes. I'd rather root for a good racer on a crappy bike (Rossi on Yamaha) and hope they do well.That's one way to look at it, but it's like pulling for 32 NFL teams each week. I'm a loyal Texans fan!
