Adding the sapphires isn't sick...selling the bike is!!! Yikes! They make rings that cost less than a motorcycle....... I bought my wifes engagement ring and wedding ring for cash when I was 18 working a minimum wage grunt job...Took a few months of installments, but she loves it, wouldn't trade it up to bigger one even when I offered a few years ago.
Bonnecuse--if you're lucky, you'll only have one spouse, so you start it off right and buy the ring. If you're like most of us, you'll have several bikes over time, like the soon to be Sprint you mentioned. Selling a bike because a new spouse says you can't ride is, IMO, problematic. But selling a bike to finance a once-in-a-lifetime (hopefully) important purchase, is painful, but normal.
Look I could be just as jaded as the boys. Years ago, I sold my racing sailboat to help finance my ex-husband's first year of grad school; then he said adios when he finished his degree AND took the gorgeous cedar-strip canoe we built together. But I've got a sweetie now and after 18 years with him, I can only say, good job!
Ha...great stuff. Funny thing is that I bought the bike INSTEAD of a ring for an ex-girlfriend. It was kind of a line in the sand where I completely put what I wanted ahead of what she thought she should have. When that all went to [email protected] a couple of years ago I moved the bike out of the house unannounced because I knew that there was going to be retribution against the bike if I didn't! I'm not worried about the sprint......and it's sapphire blue .
