Last guy that pulled the "I've always wanted a motorcycle" routine a the gas station got, in the way of a reply, "well, BUY one . . . there's lots of bargains out there."
"Well, you know, wife, kids, uncle dies on one, dog ate my homework."
"Ah, got it."
I geared up and beat feet . . . . .
Using someone else as an excuse is just as pathetically emasculated as the original issue in question. You don't want a bike? Man up and say so. I'll personally have more respect for the person that says "Nah, I've decided it's not for me." than someone who makes an excuse.
