I have a multi bike stable but it has its fair share of problems too. Insert whiny tone here, "I can't decide which one to ride today". Also, the bikes that aren't being ridden seem to wear out even quicker than the one you're riding. It's an addiciton. Fortunately, my wife is very understanding; she barely gives me "THE LOOK" anymore when I bring home another bike that needs me.

I once got the advice to NEVER part with a bike....that I would regret it. That was true.

I still miss that old '64 BSA Lightning.

I had the same problem. I bought a first year Heritage Softail in 86 and kept it until 04 when I decided to get a Roadglide. I put over 120,000 miles on the bike riding it all over the US and Europe. When it was sold and gone I felt like someone had shot my dog. I solved the problem by buying back the bike a year and a half later. Don't replace your ST, just add to it. I now have three bikes in the garage with more coming in the future. My wife is a little po'd about no room for her car but she'll get over it.

I would ask him what he is going to wear while riding. He'll look pretty funny with just his shorts on.

I don't think I have ever been emotionally attached to any bike. Check that. I still cry when I see a CBX. Should have kept that one. I have 4 now and will probably have 4 different ones 3 years from now. I want to ride em all.

You guys need prenuptial agreements. Geez.



I am not married, nor am I interested in being married. Marriage in America is an outmoded instution that has no real impact on the way two people feel for each other, just their financial situation. I'll be damned if I'm going to declare eternal love in front of a court for the sake of tax purposes.



Honestly, that's all it's good for, and is ostensibly the original intent: to solidify contracts, to strengthen political ties, and for hostage reasons. You don't need to marry someone to love them.



Besides, I don't want someone who can't make it alone. A woman's independance is one of her best attributes. Why take it away from her?

+1!



Get another bike that is not the same class as the Sprint.



Then you can ride the one you're in the mood for!
