Gotta love Speedy...

Hey, I ordered some parts from Speedy and they came wrapped up like birthday gifts. Nice touch. Thanks Speedy.

Hey if you are married you can tell your wife they were from Santa. I used to wrapp guns up and put under the tree for me from Santa. Did get into trouble giving my wife a trolling motor one year. That one cost me.

Hey Deano, where were you when I was married? With advice like that I would have gotten divorced that much sooner! But it's a good thing I never gave my wife a gun. I would have become a human target...

My present wife often asked me if i would teach her to shoot. NEVER EVER teach your wife to shoot. My advice comes from years and years and years of experience Oh God so many years

Every week I get the brown truck delivering a box of goodies for the V...My wife bought the "parts for the power tools" gig for about 6 boxes. Now what am I going to say when the Givi's show up Table saw boxes?

If I new what I was doing, I wouldn't still be working

Yes i have a set of Givi 21's and bracket coming too. I just tell her it is a suprise for her and can't tell her. Only works for so long though. Boy the intitial cost of the bike is nothing compared to what we spend afterwards. Kind of like the wife accessoriseing i guess.

You need to set up a separate address for V goodies. Better yet, send it to me. I'll take good care of it for you

My wife is not only very accepting of me spending on the bike, but she even pushes me to things when I'm hesitant on parting with the money. Therefore, if you just send your V accessories to my address you will be pleasing two people at once. Three, if we count your wife in there as well.

A deal like this doesn't come along every day, y'know.

My wife pushes me too sometimes when i am hesitant. That way she has an excuse to spend on herself and justify it. You can never beat them at this game, trust me.

Gave my wife in our early years a 3 carrot ring. was a joke one with three orange carrots sticking up and green leaves on the bottom,plastic. I had it all wrapped nice in a ring box and told her because she always brought it up to me that her sister had a bigger ring i got her a 3 carrot one. She was crying as she opened it. Kind of felt bad at that moment at what have i done. That cost me a Oak kitchen table and chairs set new. Wasn't as funny as i thought.

Yesterday I was flying and looked down and saw
one of those brown Santa Clause trucks going
down the road. My Dutch student thought that
was pretty funny, seeing his IP get all excited
about a damn UPS truck rolling. I told him, "You
ought to see how happy my DOG is when Big
Brown pulls up" (the driver gives her treats and
I honestly believe LeLu'd go with him on his route
in a heartbeat). I make sure every third delivery
or so has something for the wife's bike or her...
