Our anniversary was this weekend (19 years)and I got the wife the usual jewelry, flowers, and a card. I have been off a bike for a little over 20 years and I picked up an '07 Street Bob about 2 months ago. I ran it by the wife first and she said "Fine", but I found out later that it wasn't the "correct" Fine. So I've been in the doghouse since (but grinning seriously to and from work, and on weekend morning solo rides) She found out late last week that one of her girlfriends was riding with her husband on a Harley Touring bike when they were cut off and went down. Her friend said that she got some bruised ribs and the only area that she got cut up was on a hand that she wasn't wearing a glove (lost it on a rest stop). Apperantly her leathers pretty much saved her. After hearing this, my wife stops in at the local HD dealer and gets a really nice leather 3 in 1 jacket - armor shoulders and elbows, vents and pockets everywhere, and a subdued flame/skull design that reflect light. Don't get me wrong, it was very nice. But we aren't "well off" and this thing was over $600 out the door. I explained to her that if I were to even rub up against something (let alone go down) and scratch it, I would probably just sit down and cry...I also said that we could probably get something just as good, but without the HD name for half or even a third of the price. (I like the bike, but I'm not real crazy We took the jacket back, picked up the wife some HD boots. I couldn't see spending what they wanted for the jackets or even the TShirts. Dealership was nice and gave the rest of the refund in a gift card that can be spent on anything there - Parts, accesssories, ect.. My Street Bob has the pillion seat added and a sissy bar. Mechanically it is still stock, but performance is ok with me. May a little louder pipes (seems quiter thatn I used to remember) Last week I picked up the detatchable docking kit for the sissy bar and the tail light relocation kit. I'm going to use part of the Gift Card for a shop manual. But what else should I do?? Beach towels and coffee cups??? Sorry for the long winded post - probably why I don't post very much..
