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...........

I got lucky and got a wife who likes motorcycles and wants to ride with me, she had always wanted to so I just got her one, and now teaching her to ride. I have not got her a tw yet I got her a ke 100 duel sport to learn on first....once she really understands what it means to go for a ride she will get the obsession and you then can get all the motorcycles you can afford with the excuse she can ride them to;)

Yeah, teaching my wife to ride was a ton of fun. We did a 800 mile ride a couple of years ago, and it was one of the most fun rides I ever did.

Remind her that you could have chosen a Porsche in stead of a T-dub, then she would really have competiton for the "fun ticket$", if that is the issue...
Actually, my wife is more miffed about my TW 200 Forum addiction than the bike [;{l)

So, What is her major complaint about the TW purchase?

My my wife was not overly thrilled that I bought a TW but it has everything to do with worry that I might get hurt. She wants me to have fun and never complained but I guess I can understand her concerns. I don't worry too much about my abilities but I do worry a lot about the other idiots on the roads. Nothing I can do about them but to ride safe and ride like they are out to get me.

If your wife is like mine and just wants you in one piece then prove you are safe and keep the rubber side down!

So I take it you purchased this bike without discussing it with her and/or getting her approval. How about apologizing - sincerely. If you don't you'll just be another dick husband.

I explained to my fiancee what a TW is, what I intended to use it for, and was really honest about why I would enjoy one. She knows I do a lot of 1/4 mile racing and her rule is nothing faster than a 14 second bike and no 70MPH+ interstates. May seem strict, but it's a small price to pay for a great fiancee and I still got the exact bike I wanted. Honesty and communication. I'm new to this though, so I'm no expert.
