The cruel twist of fate

Postby oilboy1162 » Thu Dec 25, 2014 9:27 am



Merry Christmas to all!!! Took a minute while lasagna sauce is simmering to say hello. Sitting here in New Hampshire you'd expect a White Christmas, but noooooooooo. It's almost 50 degrees and raining! would love to take a nice ride, but alas the wife actually hid the keys (she knows me too well).So here I sit with a nice coffee,wishing all my fellow riders a very Merry Christmas, and the spring to get here in a hurry! Already having withdrawl symptoms i.e. . general malais, staring out the window, looking at bike parts catalogues, ect...........


:lol: I know people say we spend too much money on our rides, but I can't hear them when I'm 1000 miles away! :roll:

That's the main reason for having two sets of keys :-)

Merry Christmas and an early spring to you!
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Strange as it might seem, I find myself in your wife's position quite a bit lately. My wife got her 'M' endorsement just a couple months ago. We bought her a Shadow 750. Now all she wants to do is ride. The cars hardly get moved much any more. This is Texas of course so we probably get a lot more good days than you would up there, but still, cold is cold depending on what you're accustomed to. 40* is probably quite acceptable to you but it's well beyond what I want to ride in. My wife's in that zone right now, where I was about age 19. Riding is paramount to comfort and she'll put heavy clothes on and go when I'd rather stay at home with a fire. I've only allowed her to venture out alone a couple of times. Usually when she goes, I go too. We even take the bikes to buy groceries.(who does that?) Four saddle bags WILL hold the usual amount of groceries. It's Christmas day and she's got a two hour ride planned this afternoon. Me? I'm middle aged. I'm fine sitting waiting on 70*.

I do most of my grocery shopping on a bicycle, though bringing home a goose the other day nearly killed me!

I had a friend at work one time who told me of a simpler time in his younger days. He said that he and his first wife lived in a small travel trailer on a beach. Their only transportation was an old Triumph. He said they were quite happy.
You can get away with things like that when you're young ya know.
