    How to get wife off my back about buying TW200

    OK so what can I do to get my wife off my back about buying a bike TW200. I have even bought here a trip to Hawaii and yet she complains.

    If buying a bike causes a divorce, then you probably need one. I've had around 70 bikes and three wives.

    I told my wife that she should consider those motorcycles that I buy are in the place of girlfriends. Interestingly, I still have the motorcycle but not the wife!!!!
    The bike was a 1984 Honda V65 Magna. One kick ass motorcycle. I always said that there were no mountains in California for a V65, just a slight change of tone in the exhaust.

    Put your bike up for sale in Craigslist. Tell her you're sorry and you should not have bought it. But don't sell it. Keep reluctantly riding it just to be sure it'll run if someone comes to look at it. Complain frequently how no one seems to come when they say they will and why no one is buying. Complain that it's probably because of the rotten economy.

    Then look directly and deeply into her eyes and tell her how much you really love her. Etc, etc...........

    Ya gotta finish the loop, it's your only way out!
