Try Robin Williams' line. In response to being quizzed about his bicycle collection, he said: "Well Honey, I could be into Ferarri's!" ... always makes me laugh, even if he and his wife are no longer together.

I have a 916, and a 950 ADV. Need only one more...the runabout...a SuperDuke 990. Me and the missus also have 300xc and 200xc respectively.

Use no excuses...

Just leave two bikes over at your best friends garage, like I do.

This solves two issues.

1. Outta sight outta mind.

2. It guarantees you'll stop by and visit with your buddy regularly.

As far as your wife sees it, you only have one bike around at a time.

I have it made. The Queen buys them for me and then loves to watch me transform them. She's also pretty handy at the track.

She also believes in me buying the best protection and tools money can buy...............life is good...................if you're me.

My three can be ridden on the street or in the dirt. Wifey said all the vehicles must fit in the garage at the same time. I think she thought she had me on that one, but it turned out the garage was bigger than she thought. Bike number 4 is going to be a bit tougher.

You don't need 3 motorbikes, you only need two and there are two good reasons for that:
1) 950SE
2) Hayabusa

Cheating

My wife started to give me grief about all the bicycles and motorcycles I have, told her I'd get rid of the them all but I'd take up smoking drinking and cheating

Trying to rationalize owning three bikes sounds like you feel a little guilty about it; Asking others to rationalize three bikes is just showing off

I agree,humans have lost their ability to live in the present,always saving up and waiting for the day they can really enjoy themselves.For many that day never happens.
Best to getter done now is what I think. 3 bikes is OK,4 is barely is enough in my shed.
But not all streetbikes in my case.

Wifey says this,wifey says that.
Guys who make their wife sound like their mom crack me up.
I like it when a guy will come here to buy a bike,he wants it,hes ready to guy it,but the classic " I gotta see if my wife will let me" comes up. I couldnt bring myself to say such a thing.

Having 3 bikes is neat..............as long as they get ridden.
If I have one that just sits for months I start wondering if it needs to be here.

I never asked before I buy. Does that actually work?

Of course either way, you will probably end up sleeping in the garage.
A real man would say " Honey, I just bought a 3rd motorcycle. Take your clothes off and wrap yourself in Saran wrap, I'm on the way home"

( ... Sure hope no one's wife is reading this :-o )
