Back in the saddle

A few years back I sold my Yamaha Maxim 750, and have regretted it ever since. I am in the market for a new Intruder 800, and hope to have it by my birthday (37th). I am a newbie to this forum, but not to bikes. I just wanted to say Hi to you all and I will be around a bit gleaning some info.

But my first and biggest task is to convince my wife that I absolutely have to have this bike! Not gonna be easy I know! I hope to meet some of you on the road in the VERY near future. Wish me luck on the wife thing. See ya 'round the boards!

Wish me luck on the wife thing
Brutha want a bike fellow man :lol:

Maybe I can be of assistance. By you saying that you will have to convince her leads me to believe that she probably will say no. Even if she is a good woman and loves you dearly, she probably will find every reason under the sun for you to not get one; however, stay a good husband and express your passion for a motorcycle. Now if she is like most wives I have found..the words coming out maybe not really be addressing her concerns. This means listen closely to what she is saying. Hear what she is saying and not just literally.

Heck I remember when I wanted one I came home with a dozen roses saying, "Can we talk?" It still took me a couple months.

The biggest no no I would never get negative. Even if she bites your head off..stay on track.

Best of luck.

Well, I found out why she is sayng "No". It is the house. She wants a new kitchen and dining room! Rolling Eyes Okay, I can do that... no biggie. Yeah, I want the bike now, but if I have to wait until next spring, well then I'll have to wait. Mad But I did tell her that If I'm building her a new kitchen and dining room, I'm getting a brand-spankin' new 2005 Intruder 800.
Wonderful! All homeowners with wives do that :lol:

But I gotta know..what did she say when you added..."We can do that." Did she agree? That's a Yes. Even if she didn't say anything...I would treat that as a yes. How did she respond?

Sounds like you are there. Quick note here. When she's in the shower..rush and grab a towel and put it in the dryer. It'll get nice and warm. Then greet her as she comes out and wrap it around her. That's the romantic part. And then say, "I just want to thank you for your support on the motorcycle." :lol:
Dear Mrs Brimauster :

And also a motorcycle for him will always improve the quality of both your lives. Did we mention that you look pretty today and that your wonderful husband owes us 20 bucks.

We full agree in your wants for a new kitchen and dinning room. May we also suggest a wide screen tv.

It is my humble opinion that a happy husband is a satisified husband and would greatly appreciate your support on him buying a motorcycle.
You guys are too much! Very Happy Thanx for the support, it goes a long way towards making the wait for spring '05 a little more bearable. Thanx again. Cool
You should see us when we're drunk..not riding of course :lol:

It's good to see all this *LOVE* going around. And the guys get their bikes :lol:

*to have to in sickness and sorrow..til death do us part --- All while keep riding **

Now go for the Gold. We want 9 sons. Name 2 of them Gixxer and 3 Tiller :lol:
