I had a very interesting conversation with she who wants to be boss last night. As some of you know I am wingless this year as a result of selling my 85 Aspencade to get a new 1800, then cancelling the 1800 in March cuz I didn't like the folding frame option Honda was offering on them. Anyway, she who just might become boss went out last week and renegotiated the mortgage on her (our) house with out my knowledge. She told me last night that the new money was approved and she now has enough to pay for her 17 year old sons university education, seeing as his dad can't help financially. "And oh ya" she adds, "I got enoughfor you to build your dream garage", something we hadtalked about for a couple of years now. It was on our list of things to do with in 10 years. It will be 32 feet by 32 feet, plenty big enough for 2 cars and a bike. 14 foot high ceiling so I can get a two post hoist to play with the cars and bikes.She knew I was heart broken about not having a bike this year, so she figured I could be kept busy building the next bikes (And she knows there will be a next bike) a wonderful home. Thanks darlin,:banana::banana:You are the best, period.. Just thought I would share.

You lucky, lucky lad!! Now why do you want to go and build a garage that big and then go and put cars in it?:baffled:Shurely, the space would be far more suitable for MORE WINGS:clapper:.

Sounds like your lady needs treating, like some new clothes!!! Many of the motorcycle shops are doing good deals on ladies jackets, gloves and boots!!:cooldevil:

Also, you had better take her out for a fine meal, maybe a nice bikers burger bar, somewhere in the countryside. You might even, spot a Wing for sale and get you and the lovely lady some wheels again!!:clapper:

I am another lucky guy, my lady treated me to 2/3rds of our house, with her money, and it has a double garage and workshop. Only downside is the work that needs doing to bring the house into the 21st century!!:(

Goldwinger you'rereally going toenjoy the new shop. When I moved south from Alaska to Washington we bought a house. Within two months I had my 24'x36' shop up. It was a lot of work but sure worth it. I insulated, sheet rocked, wired the place and installed a Monitor oil furnace. It sure is something to be working in shirt sleeves when it's cold and nasty in the winter. It's well worth being bikeless for awhile.

Great news, sure sounds like you found a keeper in that girl. Go ahead and promote her to Boss, sounds like she's got a pretty good head on her shoulders.... :gunhead:

We who are in the biking fraternity that have wifes who share our passion are truely blessed. I am frequently asked about how Kathrine copes with me spending so much time on the bike and get shocked replies when I say she loves it as much as I do. Usually this is followed by "my wife would never let me get a bike"

I too am happy and gratefulthe woman who hangs around here (been hanging around for a lot of years now) likes to ride the back of a bike. Makes for a lot more sympathy for the need of new goodies for the bike!

Glad for you goldwinger!!

But... I would suggest to her that the 17 yr old go to "motorcycle mechanics school"($120 an HR)and to help him with his future you would be willing to pick up 3 old Wings for him to practice on and with the left over money pick up a little 1800 so he can study the newer bike technology, lol !!!:baffled:

When the 17 tear old is fully qualified and expert at fixing wings he can go on an overseas trip and come down here and tickle my 1200.

I'm sure there would be lots of offers.

It sure is great when your other half has an interest in bikes (as does mine), makes life a lot easier. Now, if I can only talk her into a second job to pay for a larger workshop.

Regards,

Goldwinger, you have a great woman.:angel2: Like you, I feel like the luckiest guy in the world.:banana: I have to brag about my wife too. Last night she went for her first ride with me in traffic. Not a big deal for most, but she is scared of the bike and I know she did it because she loves me so much. I hope someday she will be comfortable, but I understand that last night was a very big step for her. We are lucky to have such great women in our life. :toast:

Goldwinger you are very lucky to have a wife as good as she is to you . I to am a lucky one with my wife she is the best that ever happened to me and she loves the wing and is currently rideing her own small yahama when she is not on the wing with me , it makes life a lot nicer to have a wife that shares your love of the saddle as yours and mine seem to do . dave t.

Oh wait guys, there's more. Not only does she love to go for rides, she also understands that biking is my escape, it is my means of unwinding. I can go by myself for a day or a weekend at anytime and not have to face the guilt of leaving her behind.( Yes I am thinking of having her cloned) And I must admit since I finally founda woman who understands what the bike does for me, my need to ride alone happens much less then it use to. A good woman is hard to find, a great woman, almost impossible. Sounds like bikes are not the only great thingmost of us have in common on this site.
