I'll bet you miss the truck. The rest not so much. Or are you still married?
Still have the wife and she's a keeper. I do miss the bikes but this isn't a safe place to drive let alone ride! Hell, let's shoot for January to have coffee. I'd love your experience/knowledge on registering my '67 Spider as easily as possible. I do have the title currently in my name so that's a start.
Best and enjoy the holidays,
Frank Di Gioia
You guys just do not understand wives. Marriage is about training. I have spent 36 years training. She now does everything. Goes to wineries on the weekend (I hate wine), drives the SUV everywhere we go(I hate the SUV), Keeps her hair perfect by never riding with the top down(I do not know the top went up).
As you see the training is complete.
I have met Todd's wife several times and I get the feeling his wife and mine are mental clones of each other. His wife keeps Todd on a very short leash and likes to carry a whip when Todd starts to forget who is in charge. Admittedly my wife does not use a leash but has an invisible fence collar on me.
Like I tell all the 20 something youngsters, if you are going to get into motorcycles, you damn well better do it before you get married so you can bring it to the marriage agreement meeting as a pre-existing condition.
Cars and women seldom mix, but when you find one that does....back in the day I had two different "serious" girlfriends and a wife give the old ultimatum: "It's me or that car..."
My current wife of 40 years is an angel that understands boys and their toys. I am truly blessed.
Lucky guy, two girlfriends in addition to a wife.
At the same time?
LOL, I wish I could have afforded two girlfriends, a wife and a few Italian cars at the same time back then...
Obviously, I could only afford the cars.
Good morning and Merry Christmas to all!
After reading this post, I have come to the conclusion that you are all just slightly crazy and very lucky to have wives that at least try to keep you all in some sort of control for your own benefit. I love the humor and learned a few things along the way. Keep up the great humor
That was the beauty of the X back then, it was Italian, looked sexy, and compared to anything else not badged Ferrari, Porsche or Lamborghini, cheap enough that you could have one of them and one girlfriend! A few Italian Super Cars, wife and a couple of girlfriends was either over-compensating or mid-life crisis!
I'm broke and married with 4 kids...my X is the closest thing I can manage to an Italian super car, to deal with my current mid-life crisis!
Mine are more for the "over compensating" reason.
Yesterday, my wife told me she didn't get me a Christmas present because I'm always buying parts for my cars and her present is she doesn't complain.
I consider that a win!
So your only present to her was the fact you don't complain about her spending habits?
Dr., if you're married, you already know the answer to that!
That's exactly why I'm not married, and can 'afford' to joke about it.
Well that sounds like an invitation to go crazy on parts and upgrades! "Don't worry, they're just my Christmas presents to me, from you. Thank you Dear. Love You."
A brave man who does not mine sleeping in the garage.
Comforted by a pile of new parts surrounding him on the garage floor. A seat cushion for a pillow, a fender to wrap his arms around, and lots of neat little stuff to count instead of sheep.
It took me 47 years to find her but my wife encourages my car habit and actually boast about it to her friends... She even redid the garage as a birthday present a few years ago...
