Wife Doesn't Know *DELETED*

This set of posts has been more refreshing than all the technical posts combined. I feel like I know a bunch of people whom I have never met nor probably will and I can't even put a face to any of you but I feel like if I heard someone talking on a trail someday, I just might be able to say are you so-&-so from TT. For me, this has been a great way to wind down my week. Thanks again!

What kind of beer do you drink?
I drink O'Douls, 0.5% alcohol. I know it's not really beer but it doesn't hurt to pretend.
You are right, this has been kinda fun, especially since we all are big liars when it comes to benchracing.

Since bandit9 is a senior member of the TT community, I think he is entitled to his opinion. For what that is worth.

In reference to my wife, the syntax must have been misleading in the first few sentences. She knew about the upgrade costing us a net of $900 for the difference (dealer is my good buddy, and I sold my 02'last month for $5200 - she knew about it all). And, she could care less as long as the money didn't come from her savings or the household general fund. The point is the new bike looks the same to her as the 98' and the 02'.
"Ho-hum, it's blue again", she said. "Thanks honey", I said. "I'll be in as soon as I fit all these 02' parts on". "Well, dinner is ready soon, don't be long", she replied.
Ah, life is good.

If you read these forums regularly, you begin to get a feel for the age and upbringing of the person behind the post. Those people that post on the 426/450 forum seem to have a wiser outlook (generally speaking) than those on the 250f or TTR page. This thread has definitely taken the direction of a TTR post. Look, if you aren't mature enough to realize the importance of TRUTHFULLNESS in a marriage, find another forum to post on! (OK, that is a little strong. How about just don't read and reply to the thread.)
I guess this thread has gained so much popularity for veteran members of TT because we have already discussed every possible issue concerning jetting, suspension, PowerNow, BK/GB Mod, free mods, new models, oil change, starting, cleaning products, etc, etc, etc........
It is refreshing to have an adult topic to discuss.
Back on topic........me and my wife of 19 years have a completely open relationship. There is no way on God's green earth that I would ever even consider making a puchase of $100 with out her approval, let alone a purchase of $7,500!!! How could anyone love their spouse more than themself without first discussing it? What if she had a real NEED? You can't tell me a new bike is a NEED, and be serious! If you want to bury your head in the sand and think that your relationship of 12 years is strong enough to withstand distrust (or the perception of deceit), that is your problem!! After all, it is not actuality of a matter that is of concern, but the PERCEPTION of the other person that really matters.
You are correct that nobody knows the original poster on this topic, or his marital relationship with his spouse. That does not make it wrong to post one's own opinion on the matter. I am sick of having to be politically correct on every subject coming and going. It is time for everyone to fully comprehend the reality of personnal responsibility. There are a lot of us out there that are morally just. Our past may not be perfect, but our past has perfected us, morally and ethically.
Sorry for the long-winded rant! I just see the youth of today making the same mistakes that I made, and am trying to stop the cycle.
Ouch, I feel like I have been having a discussion with my daughter!

I will take the time to respond To your blatant attack on me.
First it is very apparent the post struck a nerve with you and cut direct to the bone
Why do I say that.
Because you make a statement here that is totally from a point of guilt you guilt. You stated
But some of us on here think that they gods and we are all idiots with no morals and they took the opportunity to place themselves on some sort of self rightous platform to make themselves feel suprerior. Which is very condescending. Insulting even. We are not dumbazzes. We know right and wrong. It is the same ole crap of someone thinking they are better than someone else b/c of their views, values, religous beliefs, social standing, so on....and so on......
Were did you pull that one from, In no post here has there been anything condescending or derogatory to another post or member. Except yours calling me names.
If I am wrong then please high-lite the quote and I will retract the statement I just made, if it was not a responce to a first attack.
Your feeling of being as you put it above, inferior and disrespected stems form your own inadequacies and shortcomings in your own life. Not anything I have said. All I has said was truth. From that People Shrivel and become angry when confronted with it, as you have.
It is a normal respond to shoot the messenger per-say, thats ok, but the bottom line is this. The truth is the Truth a lie is lie
And yes if you needed help I would be the first one there if I was able. as far as your rhetoric on the post and ramblings. You are the one that short circuited the post and took it all out of context.
So with that you drink all the beers ya want on me, I don't drink. And yes I am not perfect and no god, ya see every single day I fall short of the glory of God.
Romans teach us the diff in right and wrong, the truth and a lie as precieved by man and what God thinks.
Read the book of Romans, the Truth is in there...Also the Way and the Life
Then if your still angry then be angry at the one person who is the Truth God, Its not me you have an issue with bandit

Now, I dont expect a new bike every year or two or three. For us that would not make good financial sense. I can afford to do it but it would be a bit selfish.
When I bought my bike I saved for about 10 months, $20 here $100 there, did some extra work and what not. On my birthday she gave me $2000. (She had been saving also and I didn't know).
She knew how much I wanted to get back into riding and how much I needed some recreation. Now with our boy and I riding together the money we spent on bikes is irrelevent. (not all kids are soccer studs).
