I don't collect bikes, per se, but I do own a few. Mostly because I like riding bikes. A lot.

I don't still own every bike I've ever had, but I do still have a number of them. I've come to think of my collection as a kind of no-kill shelter. I've done my best, in some cases for decades, to ensure that they have all been well fed and cared for, and have also seen to it that they have each had a chance to run around off-leash out in the woods now and then, too.
