Collecting Superbike Memorabilia

I was just wondering how many of you folks collect memorabilia. I'm a huge sports memorabilia fan and collect mostly baseball and motorcycle racing stuff. Example is a wall of AMA and MotoGP racing autographs. I also collect the racing bikes and different scale models from bikes I've owned. Is anyone else this fanatical or am I obsessed?

I've saved motorcycle magazines from the late 70's, 80's, and early 90's. Mostly for the hop-up articles. I had planned on getting some older bikes and making street racers, but I don't have the space or time.
