Default Damn mod disease, nothing too exciting yet

Well I am officially sick. I am working on selling off some of the items for my old bike and should be using the money to pay off this one but.. So far a few comfort items. Can somebodyplease recommend a good cure for this. I planned on paying this one down when I sold my other bike but I think my disease has progressed so far that I won't be able to do it.

I just plan on doing everything twice when I start it and that way when it takes 3 times to get it right I'm only half as mad.

Perhaps a home improvement loan? With the house as collateral you should be able to get a low rate,

Get a woman. If you already have one, add another. They will suck away all the disposable cash you have and you won't be able to afford air for the tires.

My wife has the opposite effect. I ask her if I can buy something and she cheerfully says "Sure!" I ask her why she wants us to be poor, and remind her that I make bad decisions. It doesn't help.

I am the designated spender in my house as I can not get my wife to spend a dime on herself. We are both pretty frugal, but she's way frugaler. You'd think I enjoy this, but today is her birthday and there's nothing I can get her as she has no wants. On two previous occasions I got her pistols; a target and then a carry. She doesn't want more guns or jewelry, so I buy jewelry for my bike and she actually enjoys seeing me open the packages, installing it and standing back and appreciating how nice it makes the bike look. I'm thinking I'll keep her.

My wife bought me a Vic without me knowing it, never had a V-twin or test-rode one .... the amount of bolt-ons I have put into this bike is mind boggling ... my wife can clearly see I'm happy in my garage .... that's all that matters in life, happy moments together with your bike ... euuuu wife ....

Ricz, you better keep that one. My wife also never says no when I ask for something even when I know I can't afford it. However When she wants something How can I say no.
You got to love them.

My wife just tells me there is a box at the front door. She doesn't even bother bringing it in anymore. Good thing is she doesn't ask for much so when I do get something for her she is really surprised.

Meant as a joke hence the in my response.

Actually, my wife usually offers to buy me anything I want. It works both ways but my needs are pretty slim. When I do buy anything I always get the best I can afford at the time. They do more and/or last longer. Camera equipment, car, motorcycle (and shiny bits), tools, firearms, furniture, appliances, tequila, whatever. Always ends up better in the long run.
