Saw this and thought it worthy of note.

Happy Wife = Happy Life

My motorcycle habit is always discussed and preapproved. I just continue negotiating until I get my way.

Mileage sure doesn't add up.


Wife knew I was way into motorcycles when met. I have no worries about posting an "I am whipped" ad like that.

+1 I was riding motorcycles for a few before I met my to be wife at age 13 or so I think (Junior High). I made it clear to her before she agreed to marry me many years later that the person you are considering marrying would not be the person he is now without the life lessons learned and the skills acquired over the years riding, racing and working on motorcycles. And that I would be making the decision when it was time to stop if ever before my demise. I don't use this verbal prenup as an excuse to do stupid things with our finances or my life. I just know that I set my own limitations and I have her support. :good:

My wife is also understanding about motorcycles. Our first date over 30 years ago was on my prized Honda GL400 in Japan. (I was an English teacher for a few years) We still ride 2-up but of course the DR is doing the duty now.

How 'bout some examples of "good" ads. There must be some out there.

Sorry, no pictures...

To the Drunk Hottie who fell off my motorcycle
I met you at the bar last night, and we hit it off. Ya we were both a little buzzed, but you seemed as into me as I was into you. Things got to things, we made out a bit, and you ended up going home with me on the back of my motorcycle, which was awesome because that doesn't usually happen to me. I luckily had the extra helmet with me and let you wear my bike jacket while suffering the cold on the way home. I was feeling pretty happy and lucky to say the least.

This is where things got crazy.

I don't know if you slipped, or thought I was taking you home to kill you, or if your're just plain crazy and had a change of heart, but all of a sudden you let go of me MID-TURN and went flying into the bushes at about 10-15mph near the park by my house. I was so freaked out!!! when I looked back to see you fumbling in the bushes I could only PRAY TO GOD that you didn't hit the asphalt or something worse.

I really thought you must have been hurt at least a bit, but as I turned around to come check on you, you took off into the unlit park running full speed with my helmet and jacket still on! I parked my bike and looked for you for over 2 hours calling your name until I was so cold I had to go home or risk freezing to death.

WTF

Im sorry for what happened and I really hope your're ok, really I do, but seriously WTF. Running into a forested park in the middle of the night like that....I really can't begin to guess what you were thinking, and you weren't that drunk, but i suppose my "crazy-bitch o' meter" wasn't working at the bar that night, and from the speed you took off I can only surmise that your're not that hurt. I would like my expensive bike gear back though, I hope it kept you warm during your psychotic episode, but it IS mine and I kinda need it to get around in the winter. If you could return it to the bar for me, check in with your shrink, and promise to never come near me again that would be great, cause you scared the #*$% outta me and are costing me alot of money.

Sincerely,
Very cold/poor motorcycle rider who will never let women near his bike again.

this is actually directly opposite of cool, but it is funny as hell and its my favorite.

when somone mentions a new or modified Powerband i love it, sometimes i even call just to hear what they say.

take this poor kid, Stage 2 powerband :CSpit: :rofl: :rofl: :s_rofl

He's got one of the two stage powerband units? :OMG: Rare! I wonder if his band is blue or red.... wait, silly me, it's green of course. :rofl: Also "racing clutches"? There should be a line around the block clammering for this machine. :spiteful:
