Wife is really cool. She knows what my bikes mean to me. Shit she didn't hitch when I bought two new KTM's a month before the twins were born.As far as the bike goes if the frame is straight I'm gonna come out on top.if it is bent and I have to total the bike ive already had my eye on a couple 950 s' or God forbid a SE finds its way into my stable.

The horror of it all! (the SE is one of my dream bikes)

I'm not good with computer tech, but you could hook the phone to computer using a hard line, upload to a web based photo hosting site, then post here. I'm sure there's a way to skip the desktop, but you will still need a host website.

I never said it was easy, just incredibly rewarding. Once the "loving circle" is in full swing, affection is never more than an arms length away.
So how does one become head of the household, i mean, how is it determined?

Sorry, man. The part about your bike getting run over sucks but that right there is funny stuff.

Hope it all works out for you.

My brief experience with this is insurance companies total a bike with little visible damage because when you dig into a repair and find cracks in the frame etc it gets spendy quick.

My wife would find a way to turn it around and make it MY fault. She is the queen of blameshifting.

I'd probably end up sucking it up, paying for the damages, admitting fault, and spending the weekend on the couch (that's if the dog was willing to share)

Nah, just kidding !!!!

She'd let me sleep on the floor in the spare room cuz the fancy comforter is for guests

Actually my wife would be on the phone 30 seconds after hitting the bike ordering me a new one - yeah she's that cool.

I also found that these events in our married life are far and few. Use this time wisely to your advantage, enjoy the spoils of having something to use as a bargaining chip to wave over her head - use it quickly and often cuz next week she will have long forgotten that it even happened. It's amazing how quickly they forget !!! And for all of mankinds sake, at least try to get her to play the prostitute card for a day or two - just help ease the pain of your loss
