    I don't know if this has happened to you or not.
    You've spent the entire weekend working on your bike getting something
    just perfect and the way you wanted it and before you know it your deep in the doo doo with the wife.
    She says she's glad you have a hobby,( but man it's not just a hobby it's an addiction that you just can't kick.)
    It got bad for me when I spent $50 or so on a new rear freewheel and chain
    instead of getting her damaged wedding ring fixed at the jeweler.
    It was a no brainer at the time for me, new bike stuff, or ring fixed ..hmmmm
    Guess I had a temporary lapse of good judgment.
    I know I'm not getting any for awhile....

    A/C Man....of course all wives are the same..after being married to the same woman since 1969,I think she is starting to understand , but you can never be sure..

    My wife get angry because of the money I spend on my Jeep and bike. The Jeep = Just Empty Every Pocket!

    Well said!

    Exactly my problem as well.

    Well, actually, it's more that I have essentially nothing to offer a lady, and the type that would settle for the likes of me isn't worth my time.

    Don't really have this problem. The first thing I did after building my first bike, was to build one for the little lady. Now she's addicted too.

    You lost me with the link?????????

    If you're opposed to riding with the wife, that's too bad. I've been doing stuff like this with my wife for 38 years and enjoyed every minute of it. Kinda nice to being married to your best friend.

    What makes you so DEFENSIVE ???? If I was commenting on YOUR post (or anyone's for that matter) I'd quote you and post a reply.

    I answered the question...... Does your wife get jealous?

    NO !

    As far as the link??? I think it is self explanatory if one can read.... I'm giving a (3) clutch roller modifications away.... FREE

    I post the link on all my posts so that everyone owning a HT can have a 1 in 3 chances to win the clutch cable mod. By doing so I hope that it exposes more members to sign up.

    Gotcha, I'm not real smart, 9 years in elementary school. Only kid in the 7th grade with an assigned parking spot in the teachers lot.

    You gotta make allowances.

    It wasn't elementary school, but I had a reserved parking spot in the teachers lot at age 14 - found out I could get a "hardship license" as a "handicapped student" and was driving to school at 14.

    At the last wedding I attended, the grromsman toasted the couple and offered "Happy wife, happy life". I had been talking to this 29yo and mentioned that there are 3 phrases I learned that seem to work. They are...

    Yes, dear.:whistling:
    You're right.:whistling:
    I'm sorry.:bowdown:

    It works. I only learned that 5 years ago, and have been married 36 years.

    I just made a $15K loan to rebuild my 1957 Chevy. I offered some of the $$ to my wife. She said she'd take a couple hundred dollars for herself.

    When parts are ordered and haven't arrived yet, take the wife out and spend time with her.

    After you finally install the engine and fire it up, take the wife out for dinner.

    After your first successful ride, take the wife out and visit with her friends/family.

    After your first successful commute to work, take the wife out to a movie.
