Interesting you put snoring at the top of the turn off list.

That is what trailers are for! And they have the kind (Kendon) that fold up against the wall in your garage. Cost less then even your cheapest motorcycle that you are collecting! At least let Brazen trailer her bike to the dirt!

i pretty much do not like doing any maintenance but given the fact that i tend to operate my vehicles in harsh conditions it's part of the experience. bearings, sprockets and chains should be about seasonal items and as such are part of a normal maintenance cycle and tolerable. anytime changes have to happen on a more frequent interval, there's usually a lesson i'm learning - at the expense of my bank account, potential loss of riding time and mocking by riding associates.

if i had a proper maintenance facility it probably wouldn't be as bad.

tires just wear too fast due to a variety of factors, most of which are under my control yet none of which i alter: distance on traveled highways to find dirt/sand/rock/mud, intensity of right wrist twisting, displacement of bike, and weight of bike. those are probably the biggest contributors. tires are not cheap!
