Savage ... owned 7 of those, still own I think 3. More like 3 frames, 1 complete, one rolling chassis, one frame in a box and enough parts to build 5 bikes LOL.
Welcome.
Cool.

That's a lot of Savages!, I'm Mr650 over @ suzukisavage.com. I have not been there in a long time.
I think the alcohol gas got to my carb, I went to ride it, pulled the prime & gas went everywhere, so it's been parked a couple years. The Bolt-R came up when my old riding buddy bought a Kawy 1400 Concours. He has several bikes & had a shoulder injury right after he got it. He couldn't ride for a long time & the Bolt just sat w/ 25 miles on the clock...until yesterday. I paid cash, he loaned me a helmet & old, expired tag & it now has about 120 miles on it. I got the title & some spare parts. The Vance & Hines slipon was like a $350 bonus.

I am of course Srinath on savage too. I raked out a savage ~10-12 yrs ago. I plan on doing the same to the one I have now. The rolling one may get the FE out of the runner after the FE is done.

I have owned 44 bikes so far in my life, with the vast majority, 17 being GS500's. 2nd in that count is savage, with 7, 5 eliminators, 4 nighthawks, 2 katanas, xs650s, MZ 660s, virago 535, etc. Ninja 600, bolt, shadow 700, virago 1100,  VX800, sv650, sv1100, GSXR1100, GR650, XJ1100, maxim700 - Yea I know it is 50+ but I dont count bikes without titles, and some of these bikes I owned multiple times. Like sell it to someone, and buy/trade back for something else types. 44 is unique vin count.

Cool.
Srinath.

Srinath, your reply left me wanting to create a list myself. But Damn- 44 bikes? You get around!
-Keep riding. That solves most problems.

A few years in the 00's I was selling 10 bikes a year. I've sold bikes having owned it less than 24 hrs total. Like get it home Friday night and gone by saturday. Start that list, its always fun.
Cool.
