    This has cost me more relationships than I care to mention. I have no problem being alone and actually prefer it quite often.

    It's called Garage Therapy. Recommended for mental health by 5 out of 5 gearheads.

    Yes, and when the shop is as cool looking as your shop, even more so.

    There is a bicycle shop and a CT90 engine, actually the whole bike in my bedroom.

    My wife will have a bunch of people over and then get mad when all the guys are chilling in the garage. She also gets mad that we all piss in the laundry sink but, I swear, that's all it's really used for.

    Yes.

    On a cold, rainy Sunday morning, a good, hot cup of coffee, some good tunes on the Altec Lansing iPod dock, and a few hours tinkering around with the bikes is the best 'therapy' money can buy.

    You'll never see a Psychiatrist park his bike in front of my garage. :augie

    There are two things I find nearly perfect in life;

    Math....because it is so logical

    Mechanical repairs for pretty much the same reason.

    And with both one can test/prove ones work.

    Bikes are like dogs, it's all good when you are together.

    Why I'm single and always have been. Too many jealous of the bikes. Also the reason I have a garage full of bikes.
