Stupid to destroy good equipment or even worn out equipment. There are lots of people who'd love to have that bike if they could afford it. Just blowing it up seems like arrogance and waste to me.

When I proposed to the woman who's been hanging around here for the past 43 years I told here I'd probably always have boats, airplanes, motorcycles and guns and I'd probably move to different areas in my career so if that was a problem we'd probably better not get hitched. She said she wasn't sure how much she liked sailboats but agreed to all that. I did and she's still hanging around here. Anybody who's planning on getting married and changing the person they're marrying is nuts. It won't work. Now I'm not too sure about marrying a very wealthy woman because I didn't get the chance to try that. But other than that... Oh yeah, don't go on for polygamy because you get more than one mother in law.

People don't beleive me but I saw almost the same thing when I was about 10 years old, My dad and I were at a junk yard to get parts for our car and a guy came in and asked the owner for a sledge hammer when we all went outside he was destroying a CHERRY 1956 Chevy, the owner asked him WTF and he said his girl friend said he thought more of the car than her!! He should have kept the car LOL!

I would never have married a woman that did not at least like or accept Motorcycles.
My wife rides, and I would not have it any other way.

I never met a Goldwing I did not like.

I am not buying in on that one at all.

IF that is the way a marriage has to start, it has already gone up in smoke before that bike made the video.
Agreed John... You will note we never see the supposed owner OR the demanding wife.

Having said such: I will say that I'd blow up my wife if my bike demanded it.

I mean why not? When I was single all my friends accused me of blowing up my girlfriends.

Ain't no way. Recently got married, took my then girlfriend on her first m/cycle ride on my old wing. Now repairing an Honda Magna 750 so she can learn to ride on her own. I rode that bike up the road, it screams...

I just hate the color of the bike, but WOW what acceleration!

Yes, she does have a sister

Wendy would skin me alive for getting rid of my wing, let alone blowing it up.

Although I would consider it if my ex wife was on it at the time.
