New Marchesini Wheels

Check out my TWF gallery and let me know what you think. It's amazing how much lighter the front feels and it turns into corners with a lot less effort. One of the best mods I've ever done

They were about $1,900, which included a D.I.D. chain and black anodized Vortex sprocket. When I think of all I spent on alimony, I like to treat myself now and again

Well, like I said, I spent a fortune in alimony and attorney fees. After 10 years of paying, she married a rich old man with a bad cough who died a few months later and left her a millionaire. I figured I spent/lost close to.....well, I won't say, but it was 6 figures. I ate beans for a looooong time. So, before I croak, I want to spend some on myself....can't take it with you (plus, my Dad recently passed away and left me a bit).

Looks like I need to eat beans just to save up for a set of those.

Sorry to hear about your Dad- but congrats on the new wheels- They look great. Isn't it amazing that you can be forced to pay a womens way till she meets someone else to take over??? whats up with our judicial system? I see nothing wrong with child support- but alimony is worse then welfare. I can't stand mooching bitches. My x-wife refused to work, clean... brush her own teeth... guess who got stuck with all the bills and bad credit... whoops- I'm jacking this thread- Awsome looking bike man!

Thanks for all the compliments, I appreciate it. You know, I always had to justify my spending (on the bikes) to someone it seems. Well, there's a war in the Mid-East, and we all may be gonners in 6 months, so, by God, start spending! (Don't know if that would work, but it's worth a try )

I feel your pain, my man. Doesn't make a damn bit of sense. Ever since the O.J. fiasco, seems the judges side with the women most of the time. Hang in there...there's light at the end of the tunnell (just hope it ain't a freight train commin' your way!).

You know, it's crazy. I moved in with my mother in January after Dad died to take care of her (she's wheelchair bound and very ill with a pulmonary disease). When I get all these FedEx and UPS packages arriving all the time, she still questions me and I make some F%$#ed up justification. For God's sake, I'm 53 years old! But I love her to death and humor her. Besides, It's a great lakefront home and it's mine when she passes away. She damn sure looked out for me, so I don't mind groveling for an explanation of my bike spending. "After all, Mom, these new wheels make riding MUCH safer...those old ones are known to break and can cause a bad crash! And you know, helmets are only good for a year and you have to replace them....Don't that beat all?!"
