Ok, well I made it during my engine rebuild, but here it is



Well, yes it has nothing to do with a bike, but it does keep the wife happy while I work on my bike, and according to her do nothing around the house... but she says that anyway, everyday, I guess I am useless...

When working on a Motorbike, what "extras" do you do for the wife (leave sex stuff out, if you have been married for more than 5 years, I know, its all bullshit anyway)
but if its good bullshit, ( with pictures ), by all means post it!

I can certainly see the value in working the projects concurrently!

This strikes a nerve. I have half a house built and two broken down bikes; crf250x (wifes) needs a head, and the xrr needs a number of things.

Every spare minute is built building a house, the bikes are out of sight and out of mind. However, my wife is spending her spare time fishing while I work.

She isn't going to get a wine rack. When the house is done, the 250x will gtet its suspension raised back up and setup for me so I can spend my time riding while she works.

Hell, you need to rethink this. When we built, my wife stripped forms off the entire foundation, kept the place scrapped out and swept up during framing , painted most of the interior, yada, yada. You need to go back to the table on this. A few fish is not proper currency.

Women who stand back and let the man do all the heavy lifting arent the very best partners. Nothing wrong with work.

Amen! Every time we do a sizeable project around our "ponderosa", my wife is right in the big middle of it doing her share...fortunately her choice.
