A sad day in my garage! Suzuki attacks!

I must be finally getting a little smarter because after four years of not listening and praying she would get over it I finally broke down and bought the GF the blue and white Suzuki GSXR 600 of her dreams.

I tried to get her to see the advantages of her Monster 620 and then the S2R but she just didnt see it. So wrong or right I will fight no more.

On the positive side, on the days you don't want her to come along your ride with the boys, you can tell her: "sorry Honey... today's ride is ducati only..."

What do you do when your bike doesn't live up to your expectations

Right, you trade it for one that does ........

You know where this is going, don't you?

Nuff said.
