bikes are relatively cheap these days; I say diversify. If anything else, you more evenly distribute the miles between multiple bikes and not only will they last longer will less miles, but they're being used for a specific application such as they are designed.
For instance -

I have five bikes at the moment, all of which have reasonably specific applications

KTM525 - exclusively for racing and off road riding
Speed Triple - weekend hooliganism, trackdays and commuting
BMW 1150GS - travel, groceries, commuting
CB400F x 2 - scratches the vintage itch for me and my wife loves them

I need something like a Bonneville to fill in my streetbike gap though....
