This is a great point! I have bikes that I'm sure people say (behind my back), "Jeeze, what's he doing with that POS?"

Well, I got them because they made me happy (not making a Collection, just liked them and wanted to ride them). I've been told the proper term for this is a "Vanity Collection" which I think means that the group of objects doesn't have a theme (Brett Horton can correct me here).
