What a wonderful for a ride yesterday.....Wife needed potato's for soup asked me to go....Well Away I went to town for the 5 lb bag of potato's....Trouble was took a side trip....100 miles later home with the potato's....
She went and got her own potato's and got the soup going...Well me and my bag of potato's have learned a very lesson....
NEVER TAKE A WING TO GET POTATO"S....This wing could get me a cold bed....

Yeah, I know............I was told to get a Sunday paper yesterday. She doesn't read the rag, just wants the sale fliers in it. Sunday morning paper run, 46 degrees and sunny, not many days left till snowbound.............about 100 miles and early afternoon return....... :wink:

Happens to me all the time, except I usually go 150 to 200 miles and get back after dinner. Cold beds and spare rooms are getting to be the norm for me....Oh well.

The wife loves to ride....But when she is making dinner for the family I guess the potato run was not the best move....

The trick here is to ALWAYS take much longer to do any erands while on the bike. :lol: I tell my wife that there is a space time continuem warp thing-a-ma-giggy feature built into every motorcycle such that it always takes much longer to get anything from the store or from pont A to point B. She now expects it and if there is something really really important, or really really time critical, she is sure to warn me ahead of time so I can plan accordingly or take the cage.

When I call her from out on the road and I tell her that I should be home in an hour or so, she now knows that means 3-4 hours...minimum. No more arguments, no more cold meals, no more sleeping on the couch, and everyone is happy. Works for us! 8)

Similar thing happend to me about this time last year. Quick trip to the store turned into a 450 mile run.
It probably wouldn't have been so far, but the Gulf of Mexico got in my way.
OOPs.

OK ,I give up. How the he-- do you guys get outta the drive without the wife. If my wife needs something form the store, she'll let me go in the cage, no problem. If I start to go on the Wing, she says "forget about the store, lets take a ride." :lol:
