My wife runs me through the standard three phase deal:
1. Me: Hey, I think I'd like to get a new bike! Wife: OH HELL NO, you're not getting another F-ing bike.
2. Days later... Me: But I really want a new bike, and gee wiz, it has ABS. Wife: Well then just go right ahead and get the GDamn bike (this means better not dare get the bike)
3. Days later... Me: I guess you're right, honey. I can ride this one a few more years. Wife: Well, I love you, go ahead and get it if you really want it!
This can take several weeks. Oddly, green lighting my new GSA only took her one sleep. I closed the deal at the dealership hours later that same day... Hmmmmm.... Could she be cheating on me?
Actually, now that she has her own DR200 to ride, she has a whole new appreciation for riding and my MC sickness.
