Which should I get rid of?
« on: May 23, 2013, 05:01:10 PM »
Yesterday my wife said I don't need two motorcycles (955 ST and Trophy).  Worse yet she said the Trophy is an ugly motorcycle.  Getting rid of the 955 ST is a non-starter.  So question is which do I get rid of ..... the Trophy or my wife?

I think you know the answer to your own question here, no contest...............you'll get less hassle form the bike as they don't form any opinions. :745: :172:

Well I'd better get her permission to post her picture before doing so.  For the moment I'll just describe her:  quite a bit younger than I,  blonde Hungarian, 5'4", 120 pounds, 36, 26, 34.  Very attractive face.  I'm pretty sure she married because she thought I had money, but 19 years and 2 kids later she finally figured out she was wrong :745:

My wife wanted new curtains, I said a Triumph would look better than curtains in the window. A new kitchen and bathroom have happened but I have the Trophy.
Go your own way.
