1) My 2002 R1 needed a new rear tire so I'll just trade it in for the 2004 R1 while I'm here.

2) I don't want to spend $300 to change the gearing, change and speedo healer on the 2004 R1 so I'll just get a 999 instead.

3) My registration on the 999 is still Arizona and if I get caught here, I'll be in trouble. If I get the MV, it would be CA registered.

You know, the scary thing is these are things I've mostly told myself and at the time believed it.

How about NOT told your spouse.

" The Agusta needs to stay, but I need to buy an R6 for the track, because the F4 is too powerful to race and I may crash on it"
True story...she actually bought it.

I think Allan's got the best list so far. Me, I usually cop out with the old faithful "you want me to be safe don't you" for everything from motorcycles to Marchesinis.

I'm particularly proud of my latest effort, however. You see, the Spencer Pro school is in Vegas the week of our anniversary, so I said "Honey, you can let me go the Spencer school as an anniversary gift and then join me for the weekend and I'll take you out to some shows." I'm signed up for the school now and I got credit for being a loving, thoughtful husband. I love it when a plan comes together.

My wife said that I could never ride a motorcycle, so told her I was only going to get a scooter - which was an Aprilia RS50 two stroke. I told her about my next bike - Ducati 750 Monster - as she was falling asleep. She was quite unhappy when she heard the delivery truck in the driveway the next morning at 6am. Once I had a real bike I just swore that I would never get another one as I added to the portfolio. Basically I've won the battle of attrition...and lied like a rug. Actually, my wife is great to tolerate my obsession.
