    My wife and I sort of agree to keep to a pets - to - motorcycles parity.
    She's ahead at the moment - 3 dogs and I'm down to 2 motorcycles.
    And that's not even counting the bird and aquarium.
    So if I find a motorcycle that interests me, she's got nothing to say.

    What part of “I don’t need your permission” do you not understand?

    A few years back, when I first was looking at getting my second motorcycle, I texted her a picture of the bike and said "I think I need adult supervision, I am about to be bad"
    She texted back, "Let me buy it for you"

    She is a keeper for sure, and I am a lucky man!

    I had the same thing happen, only in my case it was a shotgun, not a motorcycle. :D

    This discussion reminds me of a line from a Kenny Chesney song about tequila:

    One is one too many, one more is never enough.

    More the second half of the line than the first, of course :-)

    My wife and I don't tell each other what we can or can't do. We might debate about a big purchase, but if one of us really wants something it will probably happen.

    I was in a bike shop last weekend with gf. We were just visiting and killing time while a friend was buying parts. I could easily have left there with one or two new bikes:
    “Honey, I really don’t NEED another motorcycle.”
    “Yes you do. You need this one, or this one, or this one...”

    The way it should be. As long as the everyday bills do not suffer.

    BTW if you keep them kinda in a loose order she may not know you added another to the fleet. I must say Smack or Crack may have been a less expensive addiction. I some times get the shakes at Swapp Meets.
