Guys,

Thanks for the feedback. Im looking fwd to clocking up 250,000 km on her. I think when it comes to bikes Ill be polyamorous and just add to my collection. Besides I don't think my 4 yo daughter would let me part with it, she loves the colour (BRG) too much...

"A chick that makes her own money and pays her own way and is non-emotional and practical about relationship issues is called a man."



Nah, my wife is like that. But she's a rare bird.



And even still, I learned the hard way that no matter how sensible and practical a woman is, she's still a moron when it comes to money. So independent or no, a woman still has to be kept on a short leash and you have to give that leash a little tug once in a while. They'll complain, but they like it. They're like twitchy sports cars - they need a firm hand on the wheel so they don't spin out.



And NEVER give a woman control. Then you end up like kpaul, swingin' your nonexistent balls on a message board for compensation.

Hoorah! Good luck to you on college. Take advantage of the GI Bill and all the other veteran's benefits available; you've earned them. I got out in 2003 and will be graduating in a few weeks. You wouldn't happen to be from Texas, would you? Great veterans benefits there.

Ken,



Now that you've *finally* gotten a decent bike in the Connie, you'll probably never ride that old AMF again.



As the owner of a '99 Concours, I welcome you to the club. Connies aren't exactly cutting-edge, but they are pretty darn satisfying transportation and I think you'll enjoy it for a long, long time. Consider joining COG (the Concours Owners Group). Check us out at www.concours.org. Come to the National Rally this August in Canaan Valley State Park in West Virginia and meet a couple hundred of the nicest folks you'll ever run into.

Nope, I'm from Chicago, and we're better off now then even Texas. Last year they passed the IVG, or Illinois Veteran's Grant. We get free fees and tuition at any state school, with a maximum benefit of 4 years. The thing is, you can take it with the G.I. Bill concurrently (you can't do that with the Texas Westwood thing), and they don't differentiate between graduate and undergraduate school. That way, you can save it for grad school use and get even more cash out of it.



I'm trying to be a part of the Pharmacy program here, and I'm looking at 2 years undergrad and 4 years graduate, and aside from needing a place to live (grumble grumble real estate market) I'm pretty much set.

Default Maybe you should look in different places.

I have this relationship already. She tells me I'm too emotional, and that sometimes she feels like the guy in the relationship. We've been best friends for years, and I've known her since she was 16. We both know what we want out of life, and work toward it.



Kids? She's emphatically not interested. Marriage? "Why the hell would I want to get married?". She rides, she loves to ride on my bike with me, likes travel, art, music, and theatre like me, she cooks and appreciates fine dining, etc, etc, etc. I'm going away for this trip in 2 weeks, and plan to be on the road for the month. She wants to go with, but can't, and doesn't give me the guilt trip for leaving so soon after coming back from home. "I don't want you to go, but I wouldn't like you if you didn't.". That's a keeper where I come from.

Why would someone want a big, fat, lumbering Pontiac?
