Disappointed

It always dismays and disappoints me when some one says, I have to sell my MV, Ducati, ................ bike as I just don't ride it enough. Well, ride it!, that fixes that problem! If I can ride this lot on a regular basis, surely you can ride yours. Its not that difficult, I'm an average bloke and I'm on one on a daily basis. Anyway, I'm off for a ride.

Aspirational but rarely a 'biker' from start. --Let them flip bikes like real estate, whatever...

Agree, and I have raised that very point before.

I think it is a cop out or a means to hoodwink a prospective purchaser into buying a bike that the seller seeks to make a profit on (as Edward alludes). Those of us who love bikes will ALWAYS find, or make time.

Another one that craps me is the 'I'm getting too old now' and the seller is only 50!! Friggin' idiots. Fair play if there's genuine medical problems, but in the main, baring severe arthritis, I'd be riding even with an oxygen tank in a back pack!

Thing that pisses me off is when the wife says you need to sell a bike or an item.
Arent we entitled to have fun? A hobby? A passion? What is that BS....

And if you dont, she's gonna be mad and deny sex for a week to "teach" you a lesson.
*Great way to ruin a marriage over something so silly.

Watched a couple episodes of Pawn Stars, so many times some retard walks in like: I wanna sell this bequase my wife doesnt want me to have it anymore.
I gonna sell it bequase the wife said so.
Like wtf.. stand your friking ground. Pathetic.

Makes my blood boil.

Or when a woman learns to know a guy with a motorcycle.
Dude is riding for years, but when the woman shits out a kid its suddenly a big issue to keep riding.
YOU WANT YOU SON/DAUGHTER TO GROW UP WITHOUT A FATHER!!!

Or am I off topic now...

Thanks, BGS.

You've just re-confirmed my reasons for not marrying again.

Lucky you didn't go any further or SS703 might have 'shifted' it to another thread.

Spot on BGS! spot on. The ex and I rode bikes for twenty years, I was riding when we met. As soon as the baby appears the explosion happened. I stood my ground but it cost me my sanity and a fortune to keep my bikes and work shop. I learnt from that and have never gone down that path again and never will. Twenty years now and its just me and my bikes.

...or you could marry a woman who says: Why would you sell it? It's paid for, it doesn't cost us anything and you like it. Now, just when is your girlfriend showing up?.....(wife #3)

Lol, don't get me started...been married since 1987, lots of ups and downs, it is not easy.

Given that, here in the Houston, TX USA area, well, frankly the combination of sub-tropical climate, flat/straight/congested roads, and very aggressive cagers makes riding a motorcycle "challenging". Summers are the worst, but I have high quality mesh gear, use wicking base layer, high air flow Shoei helmet, and recently added Klim mesh/armored riding pants. And, I get up early and ride early before the heat builds. Key point: you have to be motivated, and also adapt.

Winters sometimes feature a month, or more of constant rain/gloom/cold/wind: so frankly the bikes sit waiting for good weather windows. Spring and fall and early winter are prime riding season. Venturing to the northwest towards hills/curves is rewarding, but many miles. Similarly, the coast can be beautiful Freeport- to Galveston. So yeah, some places take more determination. I grew up riding in southwest Colorado: riding paradise except for winter (then ride your snowmobile). YMMV, EOM.

I have to say that I have the exact opposite...

Yesterday I went to buy another motorcycle. I suggested to sell one of the others and she COMPLETELY disagreed. So I am not allowed to do so. While she encouraged me to buy another Dainese suit earlier this week. And just to add to the story before I left to the specific dealer... well... you get my point

Black... you have the wrong wife. That is the only thing I can say.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.
