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.

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...

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 :grin2:

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

I have no wife.
Im not speaking of every woman out there. I can see where this topic is going....and thats not my point.

My point was that there are woman out there who do this and its disgusting. You only live once and we need to make the most out of it.
So banning someones passion, or make them sell stuff just bequase the misses says so, is someone I would walk away from in a heartbeath.

Beqause those a usually the same people who keep everything, do everything they want. But forbid their other to have any fun.

And when you have a waifu who encourages your passion, and takes a part in it.
Thats the best thing that can happen to a man. Share same passion with the person you love most.

What I've learnt; just because a person is ugly on the outside doesn't mean they are automatically nice people on the inside. Was riding my F3 today (awesome ride - bike behaving perfect!) and arrived at a turning circle at the exact same time as a rather unattractive round lady in a small car. The obese lady just exploded and started cussing and swearing at me in a rather undignified, unwarranted piggly manner because I proceeded to go through the circle before her! Not sure if that fits into this discussion, but I really wanted to share that.

Many years ago I had a friend/coworker (Willie) that owned a Lotus Elan. He loved the car. One day he came to word looking down. I asked, and he said, "I have to sell the Lotus." I asked why, and he said, "My wife said either the car went, or she would go." I asked him if he would be happy without the car? He said, "No." I asked him if he would be happy without the wife. He hesitated. I told him to keep the car and shed the wife.

I delivered the divorce papers to his wife for him.

Not sure this was actually ABOUT BGS's wife, but if we apply the 'political correctness' standard, could it be that she has the wrong husband?>:):wink2:
Well... My guess is that if a person is like that (yes a man can also be like that) then they will be like that. There will be no good partner unless they do onlly what they are told to... and a boring marriage is born!

Hey PT, there is no shortage of people are just looking for something or someone to blame their unhappy on. You just happened to be handy. T

Somebody once told me something like; If you meet an AH in the morning, you met an AH in the morning. If you meet AHs all day long, you're the AH.

What was the reason for the lady to put such a ultimatum?
Just because she wanted... Or was the car a endless money pit.

Honestly, I don't recall. This was 1975, and if I ever knew I forgot long ago. In any case, I can understand a woman making a demand like that if it was drinking or some other serious issue, but Willie just loved his car. Maybe she was jealous.



Willie eventually traded up to Jackie. She was an upgrade in every way.

It fits the discussion if you marry her and does not let you keep the F3 >:)
