How many wheels?

Curious about your other vehicles. I'll start.

4+4+2+2+3+2=17

The Lockjaws have 17.

1) '05 Ford Focus hatchback
2) '69 Karmen Ghia (trying to sell)
3) '08 KLR
4) '73 Honda CB450 (sort of trying to sell?)
5) Kawasaki trike for the bruiser.
6) Huffy cruiser for the Mrs.

If you'd like, I'd be curious what you miss, too. I miss my 96 Dodge Dakota Pickup and my Kymco People 150. The rest, don't miss at all. I had a Geo Prism once. Don't tell anyone.

I'm refusing to use bicycles.. Motor vehicles, only..

Six motorcycles=12
Scion xB - 4
Toyota T100 - 4
Honda TRX250 Recon - 4

total of 24...

On top of that is another pair on my boat trailer, 4 on my push lawnmower, 4 on my riding lawnmower, a pair on my snowblower, and an unknown amount on my Polaris snowmobile.

I didn't actually count it, or the lawn mowers or snow blowers.. My push lawn mower's wheels, snow blowers wheels, and boat trailer's wheels are just along for the ride.. I guess I could have put the riding mower in with the other stuff since it carries me, but since it's not "legal" to drive down the road or trail, I left it off.

I only counted the legal motorcycles, car, truck, and quad.. In other words, something I can ride to a tavern.. Which still confuses me, since I ride my snowmobile to the tavern more than any other vehicle.. (different "rules" when it comes to drinking and snowmobiles) My snowmobile has lots of wheels, but none contact the trail.. (and I don't get hammered on the sled.. I enjoy stopping for a beer every hour or so, but far from actual "drinking".. Remember, I'm from Wisconsin. We get a quantity discount)

How about some pics of this massive collection? That'd be awesome to see! Do you display them or are they all packed away safely?

Oh, and for me it's:

2 cars- 10 (1 spare each)
4 bikes- 8
8 mtrcles-16
1 extra KLR wheel- 1

Total 35
