    Decided it was time to spend a little bit of money on the beast, actually ended up spending a small fortune! Ill give you two guesses what she said when i told her how much id spent!

    Turning up this week is a set of michelin pr4s, new arrow 3 into 1 full system, comfort gel seat, new chain and sprocket kit, and treated myself to a new pair of boots aswell! So was thinking of doing a before and after pic to see what it looks like!

    Also ill have a few bits coming up for sale soon. So if anyone is interested in a mivv end can, standard seat, and a high screen (that bolts onto fly screen) then ill have them up in the for sale section over the next week or two!

    Golden rule - don't tell them!
    She'd never notice the new tyres (once scrubbed in) or the chain and sprocket so you could have got away with them! :D

    When I got my last bike I made sure it was the same colour as my other one, I would have got away with it until I had both on the drive at the same time!!

    It sounds like by the time she has finished with you the only thing you won’t regret buying is the gel seat.........
    And then there’s the ‘short rations’ your expenditure will have brought about......

    Was it really worth it? :worried:

    You could blame that on double vision and book her an eye test. :neutral:

    Replaced my Arai last year without Lady Poppy noticing. Almost identical model but it is pearl white instead of plain - still got away with it.

    Well you have told her the truth, you can't afford it coz you spent all your money on your bike!!
    You bike will look and go better as a result of the money being spent, a wedding rarely has the same benefit o_O:laughing::joy:

    There was a lad at the gun club who had an envelope taped to the inside of his gun safe door to be opened in case of his death...

    In it was a letter to his wife saying "do not sell these for what I told you I paid for them!" and a bunch of receipts.

    For next time... tell her what you bought, but half the costs!
    Unless you want to change the bike, then the service/repairs on current one will cost double.
