Grow Up?!?!!

So my wife wants to know when I'll grow out of this "phase"...

I still constantly talk about things I want to "do" to my bike and our 2 vehicles, and I spend time drooling over bike porn "Oooohhh...look at the centerfold of that Ducati 1098!!"

She's been with me for 19 years, so do I go ahead and tell her it is a forever thing?

>My wife is actually really cool, I just wanted to start a long thread and see the funny answers...<

Re: Grow Up?!?!!

At my house its called the "M" Word and its not to be spoken unless its just to say I'm going to ride my motorcycle. I suffer from the same bike porn addiction that you do... Carbon Fiber... yummy

Re: Grow Up?!?!!

An old girlfriend of mine once asked her grandfather what he was going to do with his life. He said he'd figure it out eventually. He died the next day.

My hero.

Re: Grow Up?!?!!

I have no plans to grow up anytime soon. In fact, I think I'm getting wilder as I get older. If that's possible.

Grow up, what for? My mother on law is always trying to stop me riding my motorcycle. I keep telling her you only live once. You can't keep one life in the bank, you have to spend it.

Re: Grow Up?!?!!

My father used to say, "to grow is to give up", I agree. If growing up means giving up my toys, my play time and fun in general, forget it! Being a responsible kid means I get more time on the playground

Just tell her it beats divorce counseling...

Re: Grow Up?!?!!

hahaha, when me and my girl got together she didn't think that it was an issue, now after a lil while all I hear is why do you ride so much why do you want to do all of this stuff to the bikes, stop spending your money save it for your future.,....and to be honest I believe that you do with your life what you love I happen to love ridding and will never give it up

Re: Grow Up?!?!!

my wife has realized that it's not a "phase". I also make sure buy her stuff for her hobbies so she doesn't feel left out. i'm thinking about buying her a new 1krr also. i she doesn't like it i guess i could ride it.

reminds me of when I rode my 600 home when I was married when we didn't fully "discuss the purchase"
I was shopping for diamond ear rings that weekend. They were not little ones either.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love being single?
