$10,000 06' Suzuki GSXR 1000 - Farmington, UT 84025 - Aug 7, 2006

2006 Suzuki 1000. This bike is perfect! It has 1000 miles and has had its 500 mile dealer service. (Expensive) It's been adult ridden, all wheels have always been on the ground. I use it as a cruiser/commuter. I'm selling it because it was purchased without proper consent of a Loving wife. Apparently, "Do whatever the Hell you want," doesn't mean what I thought. Call me, Steve...(801)867-XXXX


I'm reminded of my then-fiance' telling me, "Since we're engaged now, I really wish you'd get rid of that motorcycle." It was a Triumph Bonneveille 650 I'd bought new at 16. I really liked the bike but I loved her so I got rid of it.

I traded it in on my first Goldwing! It wasn't exactly what she meant. Isn't it amazing that we're not still together? :D

Thats why I have rules for dating. Only date a gal that has her own scoot :) worked for me as I have the best wife around, great looking and can ride her own bike which she has :) well I did get her a newer one recently after she was out of the saddle for 5 years due to we got pregnant :) Now she rides everywhere just like before.

When my wife and I bought our home, she said that I could furnish the downstairs any way I wanted.

One man cave later (READ: Home theatre), she laughs about it to her friends.

IMHO, if you're really prepared to marry someone, her feelings on something like this shouldn't come as a surprise. Having said that, I guess it's better to find out comparatively early.

Back in '86 when my wife and I first started dating I had an '85 LTD. I'd drop her off at work and pick her up from work on the Wing, and we'd occassionally cruise around a bit. She didn't have any problem with the Wing at all... I sold the LTD in '91 after I got back from Korea and the bike needed more in repairs than I had money to cover...

Fast forward to the present...

In March '06 I finally managed to get back onto a Wing (courtesy of the lady in the Jeep Grand Cherokee that ran over my Ford Escort - the insurance money became my down payment!).

Now she won't ride with me at all! Says she trusts MY driving, just not the other drivers!

How do you deal with THAT?!?!

I never believe in coercing anyone into riding who doesn't want to. Of course, I'm single and there are lots and lots of willing passengers from which to choose. In your situation, I'm not sure presenting that alternative would be prudent (or healthy). You may have to make a decision I wouldn't want to face.

It's going to be tough on a marriage when one partner start spending untol hours on your newfound/rediscovered hobby when the other's home alone. Better you than me, my friend. Better you than me...
