My days may be numbered!

My motorcycling days, that is. Just purchased a new toy, 2013 5.0 Mustang and wife is now hell-bent on me selling the bike!

In my working days before I retired I owned 3 Mustang GTs over the years and the new ones are absolutely awesome. Better buy your wife a new diamond if you want to keep the Street! - Wayne

statistically, wives are more expensive than bikes and cars combined over their lifetime.

if cost is an issue, let her do the math



good luck with getting the diamond

Ha ha! Yeah, I'm sure that would go over well. That diamond might do the trick though!
Wayne, I can honestly say these new 5.0 are sweet! I've had a 2003 GT until now and I loved it. That is now handed down to my son and he loves it, but these new ones are a whole new level of performance for sure!

I'm bowled over with sympathy for your dilemma. NOT!

Can a fast car be as thrilling as a fast moto? I haven't bought a fast car because I think that it's too dangerous to other people to drive it fast as compared to a bike where the real danger is to the biker. Also, the bike is a thrill in leaning it as opposed to the four wheels. I have wondered, would a fast car "do it for me" and I think (perhaps wrongly) the answer is "No". Thoughts?

I think spinning tires is a lot more fun when you dont have to worry about falling over or damaging your vehicle!
