One option is to put it back at them.
Do the disbelievers really need things like microwave ovens, air conditioning, cd players, or even pizza delivered to your door? No way, these are all "wants". People get used to them, so they perceive to need them. Just like cars with AC/auto/power stuff. You just don't need them, yet I bet close to 100% of all new cars have a CD player
About two years ago in sales presentation training, we were asked to make a onvicing arguement with facts that would persuade a disbeliever. Any topic we wanted,so I choose bikes.
State increased gas mileage, low insurance rates, higher resale value (percentage wise), increased manueverability, lower taxes/state fees and initial purcahse cost, health/fitness benefits, and ability to travel anywhere as solid reasons why you ride.
These are real reasons most bean-counter type folks can put their hands on.
They won't understand the whole fun factor, so keep explanations in their terms.
As far as a wife, it's best to ask for forgiveness than permission!

I'm not a moderator, but if I was, I would totally warn you to chill out! Insulting people is not cool on this board. We're all after the same thing-learning more about bikes. It's not about calling English folks names. We're all people, that's right human beings..just because you are from a different country doesn't mean you can slam them! We have much to learn from all nationalities, as Americans we have a hard time understanding that.
