Wifes away. Boy am I going to be in the shit

Wifes away for the weekend and I got a heads up from Jay in Ireland about a stash of parts being sold locally.

Needless to say I've now got a van full of swag. Gota get it hidden away before the Mrs gets home tomorrow

Two complete frames, loads of cycle parts. Two Brembo front ends with calipers, 5 gearboxes, 40mm bings and a 1000cc engine.

Thought about digging a hole under the chicken coop but worried I may end up in it. What are my chances of getting away with this?

Parts are parts, as long as they aren't attached to wheels you have a pretty good chance of pulling it off....

Now thats a thought...I'll forge a receipt for £50 and say it was too good a bargain to miss Just hope she doesn't look too closely at the bank statements.

You guys are so funny.

Remember, it's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission

I am sure she will be fine with such a wise and frugal purchase.

Let us know how it turns out. Good Luck!

Never buy anything that doesn't look like something you already have.

"Did you buy a new motorcycle?"

"No, that's the same blue one I've always had."

Funny you mention that. I told my wife about my need to replace my old KLR. We discussed it and she agreed. I took the money out and went to look at the new one. I rode it home and walked inside to get some tools to get the po's tag off. She asked what I was doing and when I told her she said, " I didn't know you were going to buy it." WTF did you think the bank withdrawl meant?

When I bought my little XL Honda off ebay without telling the Mrs I had to do a three hour drive each way on a Saturday to collect it.
"How am I going to explain where I'm going for 6 hours without telling her I'm buying another bike?" I asked my mate.
" Tell her you're going to the hardware store" said my mate :)


I took a day off work in the end so she didn't know I was gone and when I got it back I took off the tank and seat and exhaust, put them on the shelf and rolled the bike to the back corner of the shed. She didn't notice it until I plucked up the courage to tell her .
