I need a bigger garage

By 5 this afternoon my garage will also have an 05 GSXR 600. The only problem is, it's not mine. A friend of mine just got it, but he wants to keep it there until he figures out a way to tell his wife he got it. He's like me, too many vehicles to start with. . so, that's probably going to go over like a fart in church; I told him he'd better get to the jewelry store. He's around 35, so I think it's hilarious.

If laziness doesn't get the best of me, I'll take pics.

Yeah, something like that. .lol He'll let me ride it. First things first, I need to chop some bacon off my back to get into my gear again. Too much beer this winter.

I met a guy at the track this year that had an 04 GSXR 1000 that he kept in a storage unit because his wife didn't know he had it. He'd had it for 6 months and she still didn't know. Oh, and he was pushing 40.

Well, he actually has it in the shed at his house, but she's getting in there tonight to get some stuff out for yardwork this weekend, so he needs to move it. He probably makes 300k per year and he's afraid to tell her about the bike. lmfao

That's sad...300K and he has to hide his toys... makes me really appreciate my wife & relationship... I was so glad that she suggested (first) that I could get one... Honesty (up front) is the best policy...

What a moron - what if he got hurt or something? She would be EVEN more pissed than if he just told her.. Plenty of hos on the streets - throw her in the gutter and go buy another.. No beotch is going to tell me what I can and can't do or what I can or can't have.. MFP.. Oh wait I hear my sweetie calling - what's that dear? Um, no I wasn't talking **** again.. No I didn't buy another bike.. Ok guys I got to go.. lol..

Well, I take partial responsibility. I told him it's easier to apologize than ask for permission. But yeah, they have a great relationship, but there's some things I don't get.

My g/f and I have been up front with everything right from the start.

Damn right it is. .

I would never do that b/c I'm just someone who'll say right out front what I'm going to do. However, she lets him get away with a lot of **** as it is.

Either way, it's cool. . a lot of my buddies here have sold their bikes, so I'm running out of people to ride with.
