    I haven't been the most active of posters on the forum. Part of that was last year after i had an accident, and wrote the bike off i just didn't want to think about what i was missing. This year i finally after much waiting got delivery of my new ride.

    But, my wife has suprised me now to all ends. She has been hesitent to get on a bike after dropping my bike last year (no real damage, just a cracked master cylinder resovoir). Anyways, she and i got to talking, and she found a bike that she just loved but the price was out of our range. I told her if she wanted a bike i would quit smoking. Thinking that she would be to scared to go through with it.

    Well two months later we are at our dealership trying to get a friends wife fit for different models, and my wife disappears. She's talking to the our salesguy. She hated the colour of it but the price was unbeatable. Next thing i know shes at the car getting her purse to make a deposit.

    Short story long, i have to quit smoking i guess as she is now the proud owner of a 2011 Sportser Superlow.

    Sorry for the long read, but i'm just excited that she's taken that final step and getting off of the back of my ride, and onto her own!

    The best part of the story? You are quitting smoking. That is outstanding! Stay with it.

    Congrats on getting Mama on her own ride! I've been trying for awhile but mine keeps throwing up that if I don't like her on the back, she can just stay home. (Not the case at all.) She will love riding so much more on her own ride.

    As for the quitting smoking thing, good luck. I smoked like a chimney for years and then, back in March, decided that enough was enough and quit, cold turkey. Haven't touched one or even had the urge since. Stood next to a guy in the store the other day and had to back away because he stunk so bad of cigarette smoke. Told my wife about it and she smiled and said "Now you see what I put up with all these years...you weren't exactly a rose blossom either". After about a month you will start feeling MUCH better. For your own sake, live up to your promise to her. You'll be glad you did.
