Hey guys i was just wondering how many toys you think is to many, and how many u guys have, i have an 2007 arctica cat 400 trv, 2000 honda 400ex, 98 bayou 300 4x4, 2000 kawi ZX6r, 95 cbr 600 f3, and a dual sport bike, alot of people say that i have to many and i do agree that it is a pain in the a** and very expensive to keep them all going. even with me and my beatufulll wife working they take all of our money. Do u guys think i should downsize or do most of u have just as many.

As long as you can afford it, there is no such thing as to many.

Way to many, you should give a few of them to me. I have room! :D


If the toys are the reason you have no play/fun money then yes you have more than you can really afford. Have a few less toys and ride more!

With the exception of toilet paper, toothpaste, most clothes and food, nearly everything I buy, use and have is a toy or considered a toy by some, or fun to play with and use, TV, Stereo, PC, Tools, Guns, Fishing equipment, Camping equipment, Canoe, Bike, ATV, and lots of stuff I left out, Girlfriend too, but don;t tell her that. And I still find the need to obtain more it seems. Never Ends, I think I've Destroyed, Broken, Sold and Lost as many toys as I have a couple times over.

07 650 h1, 07 400ex, 07 honda ss motorcycle, boat, truck , car, jeep, tractor, hunting, fishing, Now that my hours got cut I have too much. It takes alot of time, money, and energy to keep them all going. I am currently trying to sell the 400ex and the motorcycle. One thing I know is that the 650h1 will NEVER go.

You can never have to much as long as you can afford it, my wife yells at me all the time. I only have an 06 AC 700EFI,07 AC 700EFI,07 AC 500auto,07 & 09 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic, 07 Sportster (hers but I paid for it) a new 30ft Bayliner boat, a 08 Silverado 6.0 Vortec Max 1500.01 Silverado 1500,05 Silverado 2500,09 Cobalt, 2001 ZR2 Blazer with 6in Superlift. Lots of guns, lots of tools. Looking into gettins a new Camaro, and a new T-Cat when all the bugs are out...It's good to have toys, as long as you can afford it you should have whatever you want.

You gotta pay to play. I got 2 Harleys, a 2000 Ultra Classic and a 95 FXDS, a Yamaha Virago for the ol lady, 2 project bikes, 09 M1000, 05 600 Saber cat, 94 Summit, 06 H1 650 4x4, a 185 Honda and 125 Yamaha 3-wheeler and a lifted 81 chevy. Oh, and can't for get the guns and Bose sound system. My everyday drivers are what take the money. We're guys, gotta have em. Toys are cheaper than woman (your wife will hate that comment) but it's true. You might want to consider looking for a better paying job. Life is good when you can have your toys and still afford to use them.

Here's my take on "stuff". You can't take it with you, so you should enjoy life while you're here. Now, toys and such can help with your enjoyment...then again, too much can actually take away enjoyment (insurance, repairs, storage, etc...). It's something you have to decide for yourself man, as everyone is different. I have a buddy who has 4 or 5 Cat wheelers. One for him, one for his wife, and the rest for friends and such to use. Well, he's gone over that peak I mentioned. He's tired of spending time and money in fixing quads that others use and all that kind of stuff. He's thinking of selling some of them.

I look at it like salt on food. It adds flavor and makes a meal taste a lot better. However, if you use too much salt then it distracts from the true flavor you're trying to taste, and can ruin a good meal. You gotta just find that balance man. Remember, the meal (life) is what you're there to enjoy...not the salt.

Remember, stuff is just that....stuff. Life should never be traded for stuff, and if your quality of life is taking a backseat due to the amount of stuff you have, then I think you answered your own question. If not, then game on!
