I took her out to her trike this morning & showed her the ring of fire I bought her & installed. She has wanted this since Aug.. Then she looked over at my bike & saw that I also installed a ring of fire. I told her I got a good deal from Hal by ordering 2 sets. HaHa.
Meesh Surprised me with lots of stuff. I (we) got Tour Master rain gear, a Stop N Go tire plug kit, Garmin 2610 W/harness (when they are produced), a 2 GIG card for the Garmin, and a $250 gift certificate to buy what I "NEED" from HDL. That is about it for the bike.
Now on the other hand, she got me gear wrenches sae & metric, an honest to goodness real punch and chisel set, a random orbital wax polisher, some Cd's for the bike, and then the usual suspects: underwear-T-Shirts-and trinkets. She also gave me a couple of pre paid phone cards (wonder what possessed her to do that).LOL
But the best gift of all, was her being here with me, and telling me just how much she loves me and plans on being here till eternity.
I had to edit this, as I did not really say how I feel. The Quality of the Christmas Spirit, should not be measured by what you got or even what you gave. It should be measured by whom you are and whom you are with!
Sounds like everyone did well. I have to agree with 'crazy' about buying sooo much chrome for my bike and lucky to get dinner. And Bulldog, I gave my SO and big kiss as thanks for everything she's done for me, too. Merry Christmas to all.
No chrome or lights, but my wife bought me a Sirius radio system for the bike. Plus, she let me order a few things from HDL yesterday, although I forgot to order the ground loop isolator. We'll see if it's needed. Also ordered a dual band amateur radio antenna and cable assy to put on the bike. Looks like I'll be busy installing things for the next couple of weeks
Best christmas i have had in about 13 years. My 25 yr old son finally came to see me in my own home for the first time.My 21 yr old daughter was with us christmas morning for the first time in 13 years.My wife gave me a pair of Sidi sympatex GT boots and bottle of Glenbreton Rare single malt (of which i am sipping a wee bit right now) my other 21year old daughter gave us tickets to the bike show in toronto next week. I am a very fortunate man.I hope all of you had as good a christmas as i did.
Cheers *tipping the glass* Ric :beer8:
What a great Christmas!!!!!! Fixed lunch for our three sons, one daughter-in-law, granddaughter, one girlfriend and a mom-in-law.
I received my Christmas present on the 16th(white1800). But my loving husband worked hard on it the last day or two and installed a CB, Polk speakers, handle bar relocators, Highway pegs, trunk lid organizer, gerbing heated controls, spoiler brake run harness, fish side stand. Waiting for the rest to be shipped out. :wink: The rear spoiler will look real nice on the white. I have already made a list for more items :twisted: I need more chrome :!:
Like others, my christmas was going on for months. Christmas eve I recieved my temperture switching rely control to show the air temperture every few minutes. Tomorrow my wheel balancer should show up. Wonder if the little lady will go shopping or something before the UPS shows up!
No new bike (didn't need one), no new chrome doodad (got plenty already). I did get a new Craftsman roll around tool box. Very nice. I also got to spend the day with loving family and friends.
I think that most of us on this board already have everything we needed for a Merry Christmas: Family, friends, health and security. The rest is just icing on the cake. Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and gave thanks for what they have. And to you, Bulldog, you're a lucky man. I've never had the pleasure of meeting you but I sure hope to get that chance some day.
Your SO got a sister like herself that is single. Sounds like my kind of woman! Better take good care of her...they aren't a dime a dozen.
I good woman is hard to find!
Happy Trails & Ride Safe,
Well has to surprise myself.
Bought a new Diamond seat to increase my ride time. Loving it. Also had to take advantage of the T-day sale at HDL and picked up a Millenium Jacket (silver of course) and a new helmet. So was a pretty good Christmas. Let's ride...
I took advantage of the Turkey Day sale at HDL and then put those items under the tree. Kury Transformer boards, Kury, brake pedal, Kury driver pegs and Baker hand wings. Now there is another sale....what else should I get my wing ????? :lol:
Shirts, shirts and shirts. Oh, and some pants! Seriously great stuff. My Mother-In-Law and Father-In-Law always give money and since my birthday was the 12th, I just added that money to the Christmas money and got some accessories on their way! Got a cut little RC car to chase the Daughter's cat around the house with, the COMPLETE 007 James Bond DVD collections (YES!!!) and my Son, Daughter and wonderful Wife!
Blue Trawler aka Bruce Gordon surprised the heck out of me by sending me a set of Closetchef's cargo keepers for the saddlebags from http://www.chriscoacc.com/
I couldn't believe it. What a great friend.
