expanding my stable

So. Much to my surprise, while at a dealership showing my better half the '09 1700 classic I was interested in she walks over to a Nomad and says "if were gonna make payments, we might as well get that" couple of hours later, and I drive off on a brand new ride. 100 miles on the odometer and I put every one of 'em on there. I'll get pictures up soon, but I was too busy riding today and I'm leaving early tomorrow morning for a week. Now however my '03 VN750 is her ride.

So, introduce the lady to the board. She can sponsor you so you can stay.
It's kind of amazing how different wives can be.
If I got mine into a bike shop and got her to look at a bike I like, she would say, "SO?
I'll be in the car." She would probably be rolling her eyes.

I do LOTS of dumb stuff. Riding is only one of them.
