    Ha...definitely an expensive hobby, but well worth the cost of ownership. Luckily my wife's not a "match for match" kind of gal & she lets me run the books. Sneak a few trinkets in once & awhile...;)

    The job I have now pays about half what it did when I bought my Harley so I notice the extra costs that Harley ownership entails more now. I'm going to start trying to do my own service work, with a manual of course, with help from my Dad who works on his Ultra. I ride it more now than I did when I first bought it and enjoy it much more too. They're not an inexpensive thing to own, but the community that goes along with them is well worth it.

    I don't know what it costs me..................I travel for work quite a bit, but I do know I come home from trips and see new stuff all the time.

    Where did that come from I ask?.......Oh I've had had that for a while is usually her reply.

    Yeah, for about 20 minutes since you got home with it:D

    I can't complain because sometimes I come home to something for me or my scoot:s

    My HD does not cost me any more than owning my old scoots. I will say that I do remember when motorcycles were cheap to keep. Now a days they are almost as expensive as cars used to be... You know $325.00 for tires, $52.00 per brake pad set times 3 etc etc etc......:laugh:laugh:laugh
    Just a sign of the times...

    I use my bikes as my primary mode of transportation, so they really don't cost any more than a car.
