Hey! The Boy Gets It! So whats the problem? You should be proud! Mom will calm down. Thinking on his own, making the most with what you have, getting the job done, cleaning up the mess, ALL Good! I'm might also add he wasn't playing Xbox! You should remind her of what a fine young man she's has raised!

I feel his pain, I've learned its best not to wash the no-toil out of my air filter in the kitchen sink if there's a chance of the wife coming home mid-process

Of course not.

That's what that nice high efficiency front-load washing machine is for.

I love the smell of grease on my whites.

Norm, we need to get HER on her own bike and -- I think you'll agree -- she'll come around to your way of thinking when it's time to change her tires in relative comfort.

She has the little TTR 125 she is learning on. She just prefers her horses, Dang road apples get on my boots, then drug all over my shop! I do have the carb for the 48 Willys in the laundry room spread out on a card table SO I am making progress....

Bahaahaha... how's that work out for you in reality?

In my house:
Mrs_thump_co = kids, diapers, food, laundry, cleaning, etc
"Man stuff" includes yardwork, fixing of all doodads and gizmos, anything greasy, and most certainly anything with an engine. Dirtbikes might as well run on smiles and unicorn dust as far as she's concerned.

(and I wouldn't trade it)

That's some funny stuff right there! My wife would have my head on a stick if I even entertained the thought of bringing my KTM in the house....

As I type, I am slowly getting her to think my way, starting small. As opposed to the kiddos whole bike. Watching Jr reassemble the carb off the Willys as we sit at an old table we moved into the kitchen. Light is better I told her and with all these small parts he needs to see what he is doing. Plus I get wireless her, shop is to far away!
